It would appear Ironman does not necessarily follow USAT’s guidance.
We started off with this from IM:
Then this from USAT:
And this this from me to IM

All I can say is it is VERY disconcerting! These events are NOT cheap! But they still want me to sign up and talk to an official on race weekend to find out they may or may not follow USAT’s guidelines? Seriously? Not only are we talking about registration fees we also need to factor transportation costs, lodging, a SERIOUS amount of training! I can’t not do something like that while flying by the seat of my pants, it does not work that way!
Any and all suggestions would be appreciated!
