TEAM IMF is a network of IRONMAN athletes that Race For More and are dedicated to leaving their IRONMAN legacy in race communities long after race day. It is an inclusive and diverse team comprised of every type of athlete from first timers to IRONMAN Legacy athletes.

When registering for an IRONMAN event, athletes can race to support the IRONMAN Foundation and its Community Fund through TEAM IMF.

The IRONMAN Foundation’s Community Fund directly benefits the race communities where The IRONMAN Group® events are held by providing charitable support to a variety of local nonprofit organizations.

There are a limited number of slots available for TEAM IMF at each IRONMAN event listed. TEAM IMF slots are available on a first come, first served basis. If all the slots have been filled, TEAM IMF will start a waitlist.

The IRONMAN Foundation’s Community Fund directly benefits the race communities where The IRONMAN Groups® events are held by providing charitable support to a variety of local nonprofit organizations.  

In 2023, the IRONMAN Foundation will distribute nearly $2 million across 75 race communities worldwide. Since 2003, more than $55,000,000 has been provided through charitable giveback programs led by the IRONMAN Foundation to more than 10,00 local, regional, national, and global nonprofit initiatives. These are the statistics we encourage you to share with your potential donors. To read impact stories and learn more about the organizations we have helped, visit our website “Impact Stories”  

We are constantly referring to “tangible impact” because the dollars you raise through your fundraising journey have a real and lasting impact long after your race day. We could not do the work we do without athletes like you.  

Athletes who have already purchased their entries are more than welcome to join TEAM IMF at a lower fundraising commitment.

These athletes enjoy the same benefits as TEAM IMF members, creating a lasting tangible impact in their race communities.

Please email athletesupport@ironmanfoundation.org to confirm your entry and get your discount fundraising code. 

The TEAM IMF athlete who raises at least $25,000 and is the overall Top Fundraiser for the 2023 TEAM IMF season will have the opportunity to race in the 2024 IRONMAN World Championship. TEAM IMF athletes racing in 2023 who are vying for the coveted 2024 World Championship slot have until December 31, 2023, to be the top fundraiser. The athlete who is awarded the chance to participate in the 2024 IRONMAN World Championship will be personally responsible for providing their own travel expenses, including flight and lodging. 

**NOTE: The entire fundraising commitment is still due 2 weeks prior to your race day. The IRONMAN World Championship fundraising deadlines are for athletes who wish to fundraise beyond the fundraising commitment. 

We encourage you to carefully read the TEAM IMF FAQs. If you have additional questions please email us at athletesupport@ironmanfoundation.org.
