Ironman Wales – 2017 Kona Qualifiers

Ironman Wales is one of the first opportunities for age-group athletes to qualify for Kona, which means more preparation time for the lucky few!


Ironman Wales 2016 was one of the first opportunities for Age Group athletes to qualify for the 2017 Ironman World Championships, and thus provides more than a year to plan and train for their Kona races.

There were 40 Age-Group qualifying places for Kona at Ironman Wales 2016, and here is the full list of those athletes that accepted their places for the Ironman World Championships in October 2017. Congratulations to all of you.
