IRONAID™, a program of the IRONMAN Foundation®, engages athletes in the healthcare industry who race IRONMAN® and IRONMAN 70.3® events. The purpose of the program is to raise funds and awareness for health-related causes.

All athletes will have the opportunity to support IRONAID, including Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series® participants through Rock This Town®, a program of the IRONMAN Foundation and the charitable program for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series.

IRONAID funds support local organizations in race communities that provide opportunities for local kids to engage in active and healthy lifestyles.

  • General donations to the IRONAID fund will support IRONAID global grants and local organizations that encourage kids to have a healthy and active lifestyle.
  • Athletes in the healthcare industry can race to support IRONAID through the IRONMAN Foundation. To learn more about how to race as an IRONAID athlete view details below.
