WIN A FREE ENTRY TO IRONMAN® WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN KONA, 2014
OR A FREE ENTRY TO IRONMAN® 70.3 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN MONT-TREBLANT, 2014
Any Ironman Triathlete raising money for MRF’s Miles for Melanoma program in the calendar year 2013 will be eligible for a free, guaranteed entry to Ironman World Championship in Kona, October 2014 – OR – Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Mont-Treblant 2014.
Eligible contestants are triathletes who
1. Register to raise money for Miles for Melanoma through one of our four Ironman Triathlete programs – IM 70.3 Florida, IM 70.3 Raleigh, IM 70.3 Boulder, or our IM Triathlete program.
2. Raise a minimum of $10,000
3. Complete their fundraising by midnight, December 31, 2013.
Free entry will be awarded to the athlete with the most funds raised by the deadline: midnight eastern time, December 31, 2013.
Free entry will be assigned to the person of the fundraising athlete’s choice. Once designated it is non-transferable.
MRF will communicate with the athlete and Ironman to finalize entry processes. Once entry has been secured and confirmed through Ironman, MRF will hold no more responsibility for the entry to Kona.
All travel and expenses will be the responsibility of the athlete. Should the athlete choose to commit to a new fundraising goal to support MRF in the 2014 race, negotiations can be made regarding travel and expenses.
You may compete in any race, any distance, around the world in 2013. It is not a requirement that you race in an Ironman event or any event to enter this contest.
When the final fundraising is completed, MRF will notify the top fundraiser of his/her entry to Kona. If he/she prefers to go to Mont-Treblant instead, we will offer the 2nd top fundraiser the Kona slot. Because some of our athletes are not interested in the full distance, we will continue this process until a winner is reached – noting that the first offer will be Kona and the second will be Mont-Treblant.
The fundraising deadline is MIDNIGHT, EASTERN TIME, DECEMBER 31, 2013. Notifications will be made no later than February 1, 2014.
Most fundraisers entering this competition will use our fundraising pages and you will be able to see how the competition is doing, but it is not required and therefore it is possible that you might not know everyone's standing.
MRF will build and update an FAQ list as needed if any questions need to be addressed throughout the contest. MRF may copy your question and post it on our web page to best clarify any issues. Names will be withheld. FAQ’s will be posted on this page.
MRF decisions regarding the selection of winners and all other aspects of the contest shall be final and binding in all respects.
