How to win

Choose your picks for the top 10 male and female pro finishers at the Ironman World Championship. Prize winners will be selected based on the highest score from both the men’s and women’s races, combined. There will be five prize winners, with the person with the highest total earning the grand prize. If there is a tie between multiple individuals earning the highest total points, the contestants with the most points will be entered into a sweepstakes for the grand prize. After a winner is determined, the rest of the individuals earning the highest total points will be placed into a sweepstakes drawing for second prize. This continues until all five prizes have been distributed. Having the highest total at the end of the contest does not guarantee a prize.

Points: Contestants will receive 10 points for correctly picking first place, nine points for second, all the way down to one point for 10th place. An additional point for picking an athlete who finishes in the top ten, but not in the exact position picked will be received.

Picks for the race are due by 9 a.m. PDT on the day of the race.

Read the full contest rules here.

Important: It is the responsibility of Pick Your Podium contestants to know the latest startlists and submit full picks prior to the cutoff time. See the preliminary start lists here.
