Earn your way to the top

The IRONMAN All World Athlete program is designed to reward age-group athletes’ hard work, dedication and performance across IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 racing. Now IRONMAN age-group ranking points can also be earned by racing Life Time Tri Sprint and International races.

The program uses IRONMAN’s Age Group Rankings system to determine which athletes have finished within the top 10 percent or better of their age group each calendar year. Within this system, athletes generate points based on their finish time behind the first official finisher in their age group. Athletes accumulate points at every race they complete, but on December 31, only their top three performances will count toward their All World Athlete status. This makes it easy for athletes to improve their ranking simply by racing more with IRONMAN and Life Time Tri.

An athlete can achieve All World Athlete status in one or all of the following categories: IRONMAN, IRONMAN 70.3 and OVERALL (IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 combined). Points earned at a Life Time Tri Series Events will count toward IRONMAN’s Overall category.

There are three levels associated with the All World Athlete program:

  • GOLD (top one percent)
  • SILVER (top five percent)
  • BRONZE (top ten percent)

All World Athletes receive a variety of benefits from IRONMAN, shown here. For questions regarding the program or help selecting races to help you gain or maintain All World Athlete status, please email agr@ironman.com.
