Event Complete 15 Years In 2015. Proof Will Be On May 31, In JurerÊ International, With About Two Thousand Participants

On May 31 will happen the Ironman Florianópolis 2015, bringing together more than two thousand competitors from different countries. When the sound of the traditional honking horn announces the start, the competition will complete 15 years, during which period marked significant growth of the modality in the country. This year, in addition to qualifying for the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii, will also have Latin American Championship status, distributing points in the ranking (P-4000), $ 150,000 Elite award and 75 places for age group triathletes.

The start will be at 6.45 for the men’s Elite, leaving the Women’s Elite at 6:50 and the Age Group at 7:00. The event will have a transition area and arrival at the Doze de Agosto Club. The event will have 3.8 km of swimming, 180.2 km of cycling and 42.2 km of running, with a time limit of 17h.

The Ironman Florianópolis has stood out in several points. Be it in the technical part, in its infrastructure, in the receptivity of the people of Santa Catarina and in the very incentive to practice sports, the competition has conquered its space in the world calendar of the circuit. This attracts thousands of tourists to the capital of Santa Catarina in the month of May, generating a great movement in the city. This growth motivated an adaptation of the test years ago, such as the change of arrival, in principle at the Open Shopping and then passing to the Club Doze de Agosto, able to receive the large volume of people.

From its first edition in 2001, to the present day, the competition only made it grow. In the technical section, the event attracted some of the Ironman® beasts as Eduardo Sturla (ARG) and Wendy Ingraham (USA), winners of the first edition, Oscar Galindez (ARG), Olaf Sabatchus (ALE), Luke McKenzie Timothy O’Donnell (USA), Joanna Zeiger (USA), Nina Kraft (USA), Sara Gross (CAN) and Sofie Goss (BEL), just to name a few champions.

For Brazil, stand out Fernanda Keller, winner of two editions, and Igor Amorelli, who secured the first national male achievement in 2014. Other great Brazilian athletes also stood out as Reinaldo Colucci, second place in 2007 and 2009 in 2011; Guilherme Manocchio, in 2011; With Santiago Ascenço in 2012; With Igor Amorelli himself in 2013. There was also a third place with Santiago Ascenço in 2010.

In the wake of this success, the circuit’s race calendar was also growing. Motivating evidence of Ironman 70.3 in Penha (SC) and Brasília (DF). In the 2014 season, following the growth of the modality, the country showed its strength and two new tests in the national territory were inaugurated in the calendar, totaling four events: two Ironman 70.3, Brasília (DF) and Foz do Iguaçu (PR), and two Ironman , In Florianópolis (FLN) and Fortaleza (CE).

Ironman Florianópolis will distribute US $ 150,000. The prize pool among Elite athletes is as follows: 1) $ 30,000; 2) US $ 15,000; 3) $ 8,000; 4) $ 6,500; 5) US $ 5,000; 6) $ 3,500; 7) $ 2,500; 8) US $ 2,000; 9) US $ 1,500; 10) US $ 1,000. In the Age Range, the novelty will be in the vacancies for the World of Ironman. This year, the event will classify 75 athletes for the Kona, Hawaii, October 10 race.
