Give a trip to Kona for Valentine’s Day

See also

World Triathlon Corporation is offering a chance to give your triathlete Valentine the ultimate gift this Valentine’s Day – a trip to the IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i on October 11.

Now through Friday, February 14, the IRONMAN Valentine’s Day Lottery is offering one spot at the race in Kona. Each entry is $50 and you may purchase as many lottery entries as you wish. The winner will be announced on Monday, February 17. The lottery closes at 11:59 p.m. on Friday.

Only the athlete named on the entry may claim the entry, and there are no refunds, transfers or deferrals permitted.

The Valentine’s Day Lottery is not related to the IRONMAN World Championship lottery; you may enter both. The IRONMAN World Championship lottery provides 100 general age group entries, 100 legacy athlete entries, and five challenged athlete entries. The lottery fee is $50 and closes Friday, February 28, at 12 p.m. Eastern time.

The October 11 IRONMAN World Championship is only enterable by qualification or lottery.
