2014 Money Lists

This is a slightly updated excerpt from my free 2014 TriRating Report which has a lot more information and data on the 2014 season. You can still download it for free!

In other sports – such as golf – the main way of ranking athletes is by the amount of prize money they make. This year, I have extended my list: The 2013 list was limited only to WTC races, this year I also include Challenge and other notable longer races. Therefore, I have an overall money list and a few lists with money only from certain events.

Overall Money List

First, here is an overview of the races I have included in my money list:

Type Description Total Prize Money # of Athletes
Ironman Full-distance WTC races (not including Kona) $ 2.032.500 316
Kona Ironman World Championship (Kona) $ 650.000 20
70.3 Champs 70.3 World Championship (Mt. Tremblant) $ 250.000 20
Challenge Full-distance Challenge races (including Roth) $ 482.450 107
Bahrain Challenge Bahrain $ 440.000 20
Other MetaMan, Dubai, Embrun $ 430.000 38
Sum All included races $ 4.284.950 415

The next table shows the Top 20 athletes – both from the men and women – that have earned the most prize money in the 2014 calendar year from all the races listed above:
