Take 500 people's money and leave it in a bank for six months before cancelling and offer them a transfer to another race.  Unless it was 100% definitely off why wouldn't they do this?

IRONMAN WESTERN AUSTRALIA SECURES FUNDING UNTIL 2020

 

IRONMAN Oceania Managing Director Dave Beeche welcome the announcement that IRONMAN Western Australia has been secured for another three years, with the Western Australian State Government announcing funding until 2020.

 

“Since its inception in 2004 IRONMAN Western Australia has become an integral part of life in Busselton and an important stop on the global IRONMAN calendar. I am sure both the local community and athletes from all over the world share my delight with the State Government’s announcement.”

 

“Busselton is a stunning race destination and one of the favourite destinations for IRONMAN athletes who make the annual pilgrimage from all over Australia and overseas. While SunSmart IRONMAN Western Australia is renowned worldwide for the stunning Geographe Bay and the iconic Busselton Jetty, I am always reminded by athletes that one of the greatest attractions of the this event is the local community and their ability to make everyone feel at home and part of the family,” he said.

 

Western Australian Tourism Minister Hon Paul Papalia said IRONMAN Western Australia delivers significant economic and social benefits to the State and a positive impact on the local community with the employment of more than 100 local contractors and 1,700 volunteers.

 

“The State Government, through Tourism WA, is proud to support IRONMAN Western Australia for a further three years. This event has been running in WA since 2004 and continues to attract thousands of visitors to the State each year.

 

“Last year’s event attracted 4,098 out-of-state visitors, including competitors and spectators, resulting in approximately $8.3 million direct expenditure to the State.

 

“The course highlights some of the most stunning scenery that Busselton has to offer, including the iconic Busselton Jetty, and with approximately 58 per cent of the field from outside of Western Australia, it will provide fantastic exposure of the South West region,” he said.

 

Western Australian Minister for Regional Development Hon. Alannah MacTiernan said the benefits of the IRONMAN Western Australia being held in Busselton are far-reaching in the local community.

 

“These benefits include local infrastructure projects, employment and volunteering opportunities. The event appoints approximately 100 Western Australian companies and recruits a significant number of volunteers from local sporting and community groups to assist with the delivery of the multi-staged, 17-hour event,” she said.

 

IRONMAN Western Australia event is proudly supported by the Western Australian Government through Tourism WA.

Yay. 

Poor people from WA  like me can burst their cherry more cheaply. 

 

WOO HOO 

Even cheaper in that you don't have to buy a wetsuit or pay for swimming lessons.

I think they are going to struggle for numbers next year unless they can do something to reassure potential starters that they have an alternative plan for the swim. They will have lost a lot of their repeat followers this time, especially if they also did the HIM Duathlon last time.

There must be a lot of pissed off people. To be honest if every sports comps that involved the ocean had a similar approach i.e helicopters + cancelling event if a shark is spotted, none of these events would ever take place.
