How does it work for WC slot allocations and more specifically, roll down?

So if an AG has 3 slots, those will be offered online via e-mail to the first three finishers. If any of them pass, it will roll to 4th and that person will be contacted and so on. At Tempe 70.3 registration yesterday they asked if you want to be considered for a slot. I figure just an effort to weed out anyone who is not interested before hnd.

Do you know how many slots are available for each AG before you leave the race venue or do you just wait for an email?

Heard from the volunteer captain that the question didn't work like they were hoping since volunteers weren't asking and marking it correctly so email should go to those top finishers regardless of answer. And then roll down as needed.

Seems like in a virtual world they will need to be a bit more open with the process but who knows in these crazy times!

Great race by the way!

It was a long long down from Cairns 70.3. I think in my age group almost half of the finishers got an initial allocation due to the small field size. I did quite poorly on the day due to the heat.

We still have strict border closures in place here in Australia so I don't think too many people would take the risk registering for a race in the USA for next year. Perhaps if it had been Taupo they would have been snapped up.

Interestingly at race checkin everyone was asked whether they wanted to be included in the rolldown. I actually said no but still got the email.

I like the 48 hour rule. That should be plenty of time for anyone to make up their mind.

I received mine. I was 1st in M50-54. A friend who was 4th in 35-39 also got one right off the bat.

Tell your friend that STG is an awful place to visit and race, 🤪 and he should let it roll! Haha looks like the process is working well so far.

Good to see they ironed this out. In Cozumel no instructions were given and they just started firing off emails with slots with some people not expecting them.

Great race and congrats on your slot. I was curious if they announced how many official slots were available and how many per age group were allocated. Usually at the in person slot allocation, they provide the list of slots for each age group. Thanks in advance for any input.

At AZ 70.3, they never publicized the number of slots on the website or Athlete Guide. The official email contact told me there tentatively would be 60, but it wasn’t until the online race briefing they announced 60. Like all IM races, the allocation was based on the number of starters, and it wasn’t like they posted a sheet announcing that anywhere.

At races with 40 slots, my M45-49 typically gets four slots. Only five were given this time, despite the extra 20 slots in total. It may be that an older AG slot moved back to our group, if someone there passed.

I have no idea how much slots rolled. Next year is going to be crazy with all the postponements and busy calendar.

The 2021 70.3 WC may be the least competitive in years, with foreigners unable to attend, and a bunch of Americans that took deep rolldowns to Taupo being deferred into the race.

Not that it will deter many people, but it’s also the first 70.3 I have seen costing over $500. Yuck.

My slot came through 13 days after my last 70.3..6th in my age group (45-49) with a 4:45 total time....a bit of my PB but build up had not been idea.
Our race had 40 slots in total and a decent size field so I think most age groups would have had 1 slot only with a few of the larger age group fields getting maybe 2.
I accepted the slot but have no idea whether we will be able to travel to Utah next year, so a bit of a risk but YOLO.....
