50/50 HIS­TOR­I­CAL BID

Triathlon Plus - - Up To Speed -

His­tory could be made at the SunS­mart Ironman West­ern Aus­tralia this De­cem­ber with women mak­ing up half of all rac­ers.

Ironman is hop­ing it will be­come the first of its events to fea­ture an even split of male and fe­male ath­letes.

The chase for 50 per cent is be­ing driven by the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s Women For Tri ini­tia­tive. Last year, Ironman’s av­er­age global fe­male par­tic­i­pa­tion rate was 20 per cent. For en­try de­tails see ironman.com
