NEW Team RTA Exclusive Benefit
Team RTA is a valued member of the IRONMAN community. As such, we are super excited to announce the new benefits for all current Team RTA club members:
- Early Entry for all IRONMAN & IRONMAN 70.3 events
- Priority Tiered Pricing
- Deferral Program
- Payment Plan Option
IRONMAN & IRONMAN 70.3 events are always popular among triathletes. They often sell out, and sell out fast. Starting for 2018 events, all **CURRENT RTA Club members who are on our *IRONMAN LIST will receive a special link from Active.com to register ahead of the general public.
Not only is this a great way to get entry into events that traditionally SELL OUT IN SECONDS, but as a Team we can target specific, key IRONMAN events as Team Races. If you’ve attended Team Races in the past then you know there’s NOTHING BETTER then racing with 30-40+of you teammates.
PRIORITY TIERED PRICING
IRONMAN is moving to a Tiered Pricing model based on slot inventory rather than dates. Slots at each tier are limited and once slots ae sold out, the price will increase. The new pricing model also provides Team RTA members value. Athletes who take advantage of the early entry offer will have “first crack” at limited Priority Tier slots, effectively providing RTA members with the lowest possible entry fee for their event registration. Priority slots are extremely limited.
Athletes who register within the first 90 days of general entries becoming available are eligible to defer their entry into the next year’s event at no cost. All requests will be honored until 45 days out from the original event date. The deferral may only be used once. Athletes who elect to defer their entries forfeit any partial refund or insurance refund. Deferrals are only available for individual entries and not for relay teams.
PAYMENT PLAN OPTION
Athletes who register for IRONMAN events (this is not offered for IRONMAN70.3 races) within the first 90 days of general entries becoming available may elect to pay via a three-part payment plan. Athletes will be charged the Tier 3 price in three equal installments. To elect the payment plan, an athlete needs to register under the “Payment Plan” category during the first 90 days of general entries being available and make the initial $250 payment.
Athletes will then receive instructions on when they can expect the next payment link and due dates for subsequent payments. All three payments must be completed for an athlete to race – partial payments will not be refunded or honored as race entries. Athletes electing the payment plan may also utilize the deferral option listed above once all three payments have been completed.
*IMPORTANT: Only athletes who are affiliated with “RIDGEWOOD TRI ATHLETE” and opted into email communication (w/ IRONMAN) will receive early entry links and all of the other things listed above. Again, these links will be sent from Active.com
It will be each RTA club member’s responsibility to create a profile on IRONMAN.com, select “RIDGEWOOD TRI ATHLETE” and opt in to email communication. Club members who already have a profile should login and make sure that their email address and email preferences are up to date.
Once an account is created, it will take 24 hours for registrations, results and the TriClub drop down menu to appear.
**This list will be audited regularly to ensure only current Team RTA members are listed.
