Can you do a team ironman? Asking for a friend. He said you can only do a half.

Ironman WA used to have a team relay. Money raised went to the John McLean foundation. Once the race started selling out they stopped the relay.

Challenge used to do a team for the “IM distance” race in Cairns.

However, I think we have established that Challenge is cactus in Australia (and, for that matter, I’m struggling to think of anyone else running a race over that distance in Qld and northern NSW).

Not with dignity.  There are plenty of open water races, century rides and marathons if you don't want to do all three.

Agreed. But if I had family that could do a team maybe I would be allowed to do it myself on the day seeing we were there to support .... 🤫💁‍♀️

If you really wanted to do it just call the race director.  

Its another $1000 for them.  

Id think you’d get a start given they don’t sell out anymore

and being the only team they would win the teams category😀

Macca should suggest to the Prince that he enter a team at Kona and win another world championship!

With the move to rolling starts and category starts, it would be easier to have teams go off last.

But, who wants to pay ~$300 to be the swimmer?

Or does the cyclist pay 1/2 the cost?

Even then $200 plus gets you plenty of marathons where you don't start mid arvo.

Get your company to pay the entry fee

I’d like to do an Ironman Aquabike: 3.8km swim, 180km bike, 100M run across the finish line.

I'm sure you could find a situation where IM could be forced to reduce the run distance that much. How good a lawyer are you?
