Welcome to Pick Your Podium, the Triathlete.com game that pits you against other triathlon fans in a race for a big-time prize.

Starting on Tuesday, Oct. 8 you’ll choose your picks for the top three male and female pro finishers at the 2019 Ironman World Championship. There will be one winner. Whoever can most accurately predict the pro podiums (and come closest to their finishing times, if a tie-breaker is needed) will win the grand prize.

Points: Contestants will receive 25 points for correctly picking first place, 10 points for second, and 5 points for third (for each of their male and female picks). Contestants will not be awarded any points for correctly picking any podium athletes in the wrong order. Only points will be given for picks that are exactly correct. If there is a tie (for example, if multiple contestants receive the full 80 points), the contestant who has the least margin of error in guessing both the male and female finisher times will be named the grand prize winner. In the unlikely event that there is still a tie, one winner will be randomly picked from the remaining contestants.

Important: It is the responsibility of Pick Your Podium contestants to know the start list and submit full picks prior to the cutoff time. Only one entry is allowed and contestants cannot re-submit picks if an athlete announces during race week that he/she will not be competing. Spelling for each athlete must be 100% correct.

Pick Your Podium will launch on Tuesday, Oct. 8 and picks are due by 12 a.m. HST/3 a.m. PDT/6 a.m. EDT on the day of the race (Saturday, Oct. 12). The winner will be announced on Tuesday, Oct. 15.
