Going, going, gone… Ironman 70.3 Staffs sells out in minutes

Organisers hail “phenomenal” response for June 2015 event, with thousands of race spots selling out this afternoon in just 14mins

Could this be the fastest-selling UK Ironman ever? Race spots went on sale this afternoon for the first Ironman 70.3 Staffs – and had all sold out within 14 minutes.

The race will be held at Shugborough Hall Estate on Sunday 14 June 2015, and promises a fast, flat course for athletes – the bike course was announced last week and features 627m of vertical ascent, considerably less than the 1,554m posed by Ironman 70.3 Wimbleball. 

“We have had a phenomenal response from the moment we announced 70.3 Staffordshire,” said Dan James, race director. “The venue of Shugborough and the amazing backdrop of Staffordshire offers the perfect setting in every aspect." 

If you didn’t manage to bag your race spot then don’t lose hope – there are guaranteed places available with a number of official charities including Macmillan Cancer Support and Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research (more details here).

And if you’re looking to race as part of a team, entries for the team relay category will open in October (pre-register here).

Are you one of the lucky ones to have bagged a race spot? Let us know in the comments!

My first 70.3 and right on the doorstep. For the price I have paid I am expecting the organisation especially around the split transition to be excellent.
