COMMUNITY FUND ENTRY

Overview

The IRONMAN Foundation Community Fund provides athletes with the opportunity to register for IRONMAN events with a charitable giveback component as part of their registration.
Approximately 50% of a Community Fund entry fee is a tax-deductible donation to the IRONMAN Foundation.
Community Fund entries help to support and fuel our giveback in our race communities around the world.
