HERE IS THE 2015 KONA LOTTERY WINNERS LIST!!
Kona Lottery 2015 Opens Early with bonus slot up for grabs
It’s that time of year again only this time its come sooner. For those of you who would like to try your luck at a lottery spot for Ironman Hawaii 2015 you should know that it’s starting early this year.
As a matter of fact you might even win yourself a bonus slot if you enter between Monday October 6 at noon EST and Friday October 10 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
As I’m sure most of you know, the Ironman Hawaii World Championships 2014 will be taking place next week on Saturday October 11.
The draw for the Kona 2015 bonus slot will take place at the end of the IronmanLive coverage of the 2014 race.
This actually seems like a pretty good opportunity if you plan on entering the lottery anyway.
When you come right down to it, a lot of people might not even be aware of this opportunity to win a draw for the extra slot until it’s too late. Lucky you!
The more time passes the more entries there will be for the 100 available lottery spots that will be drawn on March 17, 2015. The deadline for entering the contest is February 28, 2015.
As always there will be 100 lottery spots, 100 legacy spots, and 5 Physically Challenged spots for a total of 206 lottery spots including the bonus draw.
I wonder if that triathlete is still trying who emailed me last year to say it was his 12th attempt at getting into Kona via the lottery. Maybe lucky number 13 will do it for him.
I really believe that every triathlete who has heard the call of the Iron Gods but may never be fast enough to finish near the top of their age-group should enter this lottery.
There is just so much drama and history that has taken place on the Ironman Hawaii course and just being part of it is something that will stay with you forever.
There is nothing quite like that final stretch down Ali’i Drive to the finish line and it is truly a defining moment in the world of sport.
Better buy yourself an entry into the draw. You just never know.
Here are the 100 lottery winners from 2014
Good luck to them all in the 2014 race!!
