Explanation of Slot Types
Here are some more details on the different slot types:
Kona Winners receive a slot for the next five years. This slot has to be verified by finishing at least one Ironman outside of Kona. If an athlete has not verified his champion slot, “(NV)” is added.
The winner of the 70.3 Championship receives a slot for next year’s Kona race. This slot has to be verified by finishing at least one Ironman outside of Kona. If an athlete has not verified his 70.3 slot, “(NV)” is added.
This is the “normal” way of qualifying by winning or finishing close to the front in an Ironman race. There is no additional validation requirement for this type of slot.
