  3. Once the contract is in place, register for the Miles for Melanoma Triathletes Team, create your fundraising page and reach your fundraising goal. Registration on the Miles for Melanoma Triathletes Team site is required.

  4. When you've reached your goal, or if we finalize your fundraising with your provided credit card,  the MRF will submit your name and email address (the one you used to register on our pages) to the Ironman Athlete Services team. IRONMAN will then send you a confirmation email directly, usually within 1-2 weeks from name submission.

  5. When you receive your confirmation email, you may complete your registration on the appropriate IRONMAN event site. IRONMAN requires that all participants' registration be completed a minimum of 60 days prior to race day.

  6. All further athlete information for your race will be sent to you from IRONMAN. MRF is only responsible for your participation in the Miles for Melanoma Triathletes Team and fundraising.
