Thanks, Stephen del Monte, for all you did to pull this together, and also to the awesome volunteers and police, fireman (particularly the officer running the shower on the boardwalk). I've followed you long enough to know you'll work out any identified kinks next year. A beach umbrella that runs the length of the boardwalk would be a nice start.

I truly love competing in Delmo events. Since I live right around the corner from AC I was ecstatic to be part of an amazing group of volunteers. The challenging part was greeting the athletes off the shuttle and reassuring them everything would be alright. Hopefully everyone made it on time. Thank you for being so understanding. It was great to see such a huge turnout. I learned a lot from this experience as a volunteer. You athletes are truly amazing !!! And as far as the spectators shuttle: due to the overwhelming amount of athletes it's was in the best interest for the safety of the runners for the police to hold back the traffic they way they did. Thank you ACPD for keeping the athletes safe. 👍🏻

Thank you Steve DelMonte for another great race! You thought of everything, right down to the mats at the WAWA entrance! This was my first 70.3 and couldn't be prouder finishing it! Your volunteers were so encouraging along the way, and I don't think I could have survived the run without those ice cold sponges! A special thank you to all the police officers from AC and the surrounding towns as well they did an excellent job! Right down to the officer that kept the shower on the Ventner boardwalk going! As for the parking complainers, if they attended the Athletes meeting they would have known to leave early. We got there no later than 4:45 and had no issues. After all there is pretty much only one way in from the boardwalk, that is out of your control! Oh and JGSS winning the Delmo Cup an added bonus!

I have to say I had an amazing time in my first ironman. My experience was only exceptional. Thank you so much to the amazing volunteers and staff, I felt that it was extremely well organized and the expectations were very clear. This was only my second triathlon ever and I have to say, the tri community is absolutely amazing and encouraging. Thank you for making this experience one of the best in my athletic life!!!

Huge thanks to local and state law enforcement. I'm from the Midwest and not a big city. Heading off the bombs at Seaside and NY was a very frightening eye opener for me. I am so amazed by how many I saw on the course and the steps that were made to keep us safe on all levels from fending off traffic for us. :o to attacks. Even more impressive was how friendly they were on the course. One of the nicest groups I've seen at a race. Special thanks to the deputy who stood on the boardwalk and pushed the shower button for us. He was awesome and fun too. I can't imagine what it takes to put on a race this size in a city of this size. Amazing coordination between race staff, local municipalities and law enforcement. Give thanks to everyone. I also want to that all the amazing athletes and volunteers who encouraged me along the way. Love this community. I hope this "pink sparkle skirt lady" made some of you smile and forget the pain for a second or two. Thanks to everyone who made a tough day survivable.

Thank goodness today's weather didn't happen yesterday!! Thanks Stephen del Monte to your staff and the volunteers for a great race! Nothing ever goes perfect but all-in-all it was a well run race. I really appreciated the well stocked tables on the boardwalk and the crowd control for runners was awesome. If there is anyway to add more shade; it would be even more perfect.

Yay! I finished! Although I've completed many sprint/Olympic distance tris, at the young age of 58, I decided to try my first half-iron. Missed my goal by 26 min (wanted to break 7 hrs.), but so glad I did it! I too thought the support from all involved was top notch. I have never raced where the police took such an active role in cheering, turning on water, etc. Usually I'm just thankful they're directing traffic! This post race glow may last quite a while. Thank you AC!

I have not commented, but have been following the posts over the past 24+ hours...My two main take-aways from from the race: 1. Stephen Del Monte is an awesome Race Director! Plenty of support on the course, great staff and volunteers, beautiful course! I have worked plenty of Delmo races as a vendor/sponsor, but now can comment as an athlete...I have done races throughout the US and this was one of the best (even though I did not PR)! 2. The Atlantic City public safety team (Police, Fire, EMS and Surf Guard) are first rate! Despite all of the negative comments on the swim, the surf guard put public safety first. Despite the events in Seaside on Saturday, I felt totally safe thanks to the AC Police and the NJ State Police. Thank you for a great race and protecting me and my family!

Slot Allocation and Rolldown will be completed together in the same ceremony for all IRONMAN 70.3 events. Please check the schedule of events for time and location.

Anyone who wishes to claim a Rolldown slot must attend the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship Slot Allocation and Rolldown Ceremony and claim their slot in person.

If an automatic qualifier in an Age Group chooses not to take the slot, does not attend the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship Slot Allocation and Rolldown Ceremony, or has already qualified, the next eligible finisher in that Age Group may claim the slot that has rolled down.

If there are no more eligible finishers in a particular Age Group or no other finishers in attendance at the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship Slot Allocation and Rolldown Ceremony in that Age Group, that unclaimed slot will be reallocated to another Age Group within the gender based on the athletes-to-slots ratio.

The Age Group within the gender with the largest athletes-to-slots ratio will receive the first reallocated slot, followed by the next largest ratio receiving the second re-allocated slot (if applicable), and so on.

Q: As a PC athlete, can I participate as a relay team member?

Q: Do all team members need to be body marked?

A: Yes. Relay athletes will get body marked with race team number and the letter “R” denoting a relay team. The team’s bib number will be marked on both arms and the “R” will be marked in the right calf. 

Q: How does transition work? Do the cyclist/runner need to stay in transition the entire time?

A: For most events, a relay pen will be designated for the teams to gather. This is where the passing of the timing chip will take place in order to move on to the next discipline. If the race provides a relay pen, only the cyclist is allowed in transition, he/she must have the chip from the swimmer before un-racking the bike, and must rack the bike before passing the chip to the runner.

If the race does NOT provide a relay pen, the cyclist and runner will meet their team members at the bike rack. Please make sure to coordinate with team members regarding estimated times members are not loitering in transition during the race.

Q: Is there a Relay specific wave? 

A: Relay teams will be assigned to either their own wave or with another Age Group wave. It is crucial that the swimmer starts with their correct wave and start time. The relay wave positioning is at the discretion of the race organizers.

Q: Are cutoffs the same for relay teams?

A: Yes. Relay Teams are expected to make the below course cut-offs.

Swim: Each wave will have 1:10 to complete the swim.  Athletes who take longer than 1:10 to complete the swim will receive a DNF. Additionally, any athlete that starts in the final wave and misses the 1:10 cut off will not be allowed to continue on in the race and will receive a DNF.

Bike: 5 hours and 30 minutes after the final wave start.

Run: 8 hours and 30 minutes after the final wave start.

Total Time Cut-off: The race will officially end 8 hours and 30 minutes after the final wave. Each team will have 8 hours and 30 minutes to complete the race.  Any team that takes longer than 8 hours and 30 minutes to complete the race will receive a DNF.

Q: Can cyclist/runner watch the swimmer?

A: You are more than welcome to head to the swim start to watch your swimmer. Just be cautious of the timing. At double transition races, it may be difficult for the runner to get back to Transition 2 before the cyclist returns.

Q: If a team member fails to make the course cutoff, can other team members still complete their leg of the race?

A: No. Failure to complete the swim or bike course within the time constraints will result as a DNF of the entire team. Please refer to the Athlete Guide for the time cut-offs on each bike and run course.

Q: Can all team members cross the finish line together?

A: No. Only the run leg relay participant is able to cross the finish line. If more than one team member crosses the finish line, the team will receive a DNF. All other relay participants will be able to access post-race finish line athlete areas (not including the finish line chute).

Q: How are Relay medals and Finisher hats distributed?

A: Finisher Hats and Relay Medals are given to the runner upon finishing. It is the responsibility of the run leg athlete collect and distribute the hats and medals to the team.

IRONMAN  reserves  the  right  to  remove  an  athlete  from  the  course  and DNF the athlete if our course staff determines there is no possibility of an athlete  finishing  the  given  discipline  (swim,  bike,  run)  before  the  posted cut-off  times  based  on  an  athlete’s  location,  time  and  average  speed  up to that point.
