World Championship eBay® Auction
More than 80,000 athletes vie for a slot to The IRONMAN World Championship event each year, while only 1,850 make it to the starting line on race day. Through The IRONMAN Foundation's charitable eBay auction, athletes have the opportunity to bid on one of four coveted slots which grant them entry into the event that takes place in Kailua-Kona, Hawai`i. Through this program, more than two-million dollars has been raised and over a dozen global organizations have received funding.
The IRONMAN World Championship eBay auction begins in mid-April each year, auctioning off one entry per week for a four week period.
