Slot Assignment Process

IRONMAN Portugal-Cascais uses a two-part slot allocation system to determine who qualifies for the Marbella, Nice or Kona championships.

Below, we explain the process:

Before race day:

Each age group with registered athletes is initially assigned Slots. However, additional places are reserved and are not distributed until the day of the race.

Race day:

If an age group has no participants, its initial slot is lost and added to the pool of unassigned slots.

These remaining places are then distributed proportionally between the age groups with participants, based on the number of participants in each category (male and female).

Age groups with more participants will receive a greater proportion of the remaining places.

After the race:

If an age group with participants has no finalists, its assigned place is redistributed to the age group with the highest ratio of participants per place available, taking into account only athletes of the same gender.

This process is repeated over a designated “redistribution” period to ensure that all spots are claimed.
