The Ironman Canada event, scheduled for August 30 in Penticton, is still current.
Although many of the events on the Ironman Championship calendar have been moved to the end of the summer, the organization still plans to host an event in Penticton the last weekend of August.
Participants in the Penticton Ironman will now have the chance to participate in more than 60 slots for the 2020 Ironman World Championship, as the qualifying window has been extended from August 23 to 30.
Ironman races that have been postponed from an earlier date in the 2020 season and are rescheduled to take place no later than. 30 will remain in the Ironman World Championship 2020 qualifying season. Events which have been postponed to take place after August 30 will advance to the IRONMAN 2021 World Championship qualifying season.
In addition, the Legacy program has been allocated additional slots for 2020, offering each eligible Legacy athlete on the waiting list the opportunity to compete in the 2020 Ironman World Championship.
