Important rules to remember
FORD IRONMAN COZUMEL will operate under the “three strikes and you’re out” principle. Even though DRAFTING is the only violation to incur a time penalty (to be served in the nearest penalty tent at various spots on the bike course), any type of violation counts toward your three strikes.
1. DRAFTING violation (four minutes served in a bike course penalty tent)
2. HELMET CHINSTRAP violation
3. LITTERING violation – a third violation results in disqualification (DQ)
Again, any combination of three rule violations will result in a DQ. To maximize your understanding of the rules on race day, please take the time to read and understand the following summary of Position Violations.
• Always ride on the right side of your lane to avoid an ILLEGAL POSITION or BLOCKING call
• Keep four bike lengths (7 meters) between your bike’s front wheel and the rear wheel of the cyclist in front of you to avoid a DRAFTING call
• Always pass on the left of the cyclist in front of you, never on the right to avoid an ILLEGAL PASS call
• Complete your pass within 20 seconds to avoid a DRAFTING call
• If passed, drop back four bike lengths before attempting to re-pass to avoid an OVERTAKEN or DRAFTING call
Ironman Triathlon is an individual event, and it is your responsibility to fully understand the rules and avoid penalties. In the case of Position Violations, the referees’ ruling is final and is not open to protests or appeals. The following are several other common rules violations:
• HELMET CHINSTRAP—the chinstrap of your helmet must be securely fastened whenever you are on possession of your bike on race day!
• RACE NUMBER—you must display your race number during the bike and run portions of the race, and your bike number must be properly attached to your bike and be visible.
• LITTERING—do not throw away ANYTHING outside of official aid stations!
• UNAUTHORIZED EQUIPMENT—sorry, absolutely no cell phones, MP3 players, Oakley Thumps, iPods or other audio listening devices!
• OUTSIDE ASSISTANCE—do NOT accept any assistance from anyone other than a race official, and do NOT have non-racers ride or run alongside you!
You must go to a penalty tent for any violation to have your number marked, and all violations count toward your three strikes. There will be no penalty tents on the run. If you are penalized on the run, the official will mark your number on the spot.
Please remember to treat other athletes, volunteers and your race officials with courtesy and consideration. Not doing so is considered UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT and may result in direct disqualification.

The inaugural “Hawaiian IRON MAN Triathlon” was conceptualized in 1977 as a way to challenge athletes who had seen success at a local biathlon. San Diego-based John Collins proposed combining the three toughest endurance races in Hawai’i – the 2.4-mile Waikiki Roughwater Swim, 112 miles of the Around-O’ahu Bike Race and the 26.2-mile Honolulu Marathon – into one event.
On Feb. 18, 1978, 15 people came to Waikiki to take on the Ironman challenge. Prior to racing, each received three sheets of paper with a few rules and a course description. The last page read: “Swim 2.4 miles! Bike 112 miles! Run 26.2 miles! Brag for the rest of your life!”
In 1981, the race moved from the tranquil shores of Waikiki to the barren lava fields of Kona on the Big Island of Hawai’i. Along the Kona Coast, black lava rock dominates the panorama, and athletes battle the “ho’omumuku” crosswinds of 45 mph, 95 degree temperatures and a scorching sun.
Now in its 34th year, the Ironman World Championship centers on the dedication and courage exhibited by participants who demonstrate the Ironman mantra that “ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. ®” On Oct. 8, nearly 1,800 athletes will embark on a 140.6-mile journey that presents the ultimate test of body, mind and spirit to earn the title of “Ironman.”
Scenic and Technical Course and Main Street Finish Highlight PA’s First Ironman Event
October 2, 2010 (Stroudsburg, PA) - On a crisp autumn day in Northeast Pennsylvania, Belgium’s Bart Aernouts and Canada’s Magali Tisseyre won the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Pocono Mountains. Shortened to a bike/run due to heavy rains this week, Pennsylvania’s first Ironman event challenged athletes on a scenic and technical bike course and a rolling and beautiful run course finishing on Main Street in Stroudsburg, PA packed with thousands of spectators.
In the men’s pro race, Aernouts, fresh off his win at Ironman 70.3 Syracuse, took the lead on the hilly and technical bike course and was first into transition with a 3:25 lead. The Belgian never looked back logging a 1:14:25 run going wire to wire to take the win with an overall time of 3:27:04. Zach Ruble took second in 3:34:33. Fabian Conrad rounded out the podium in third with a time of 3:35:35.
With the time trial start, Magali Tisseyre was the very last pro out of the starting gate. The petite Canadian made up some ground on the bike course but still entered T2 a few minutes behind Jennifer Tetrick, Jessie Donavan and Kristen White. Tisseyre was able to catch Tetrick and White in the first few miles of the run and finally passed Donavan at the turnaround pulling away for the win. Tisseyre finished in front of a raucous crowd in 3:57:11. Donavan finished second in 4:02:46 and Tetrick rounded out the podium in 4:04:11.
The pro field battled for the event’s $15,000 purse with Aernouts and Tisseyre each taking home a $3,000 first place prize. The Ironman 70.3 Pocono Mountains is an early season qualifying race for the 2012 Marine Corps Ironman 70.3 World Championships. 50 athletes earned qualifying spots for the Worlds next September in Las Vegas.
