Halfmax Qualifying slot in SC
POSTED: 1/21/10 12:33 PM

Does anyone know if IM AZ 09 was a qualifier for the Halfmax qualifying slot? I see on the 2010 qualifying guide my IM time qualifies me but wasn't sure of the date cut-offs. I've emailed USAT as well but I'm pretty pumped if I did actual qualify and have a chance to try to quaify for Worlds! I need to research this stuff more!

The answer is yes.

"You can qualify by established time standards at any USAT SANCTIONED half iron-distance or full iron-distance event in the nation."

You may now buy me a drink :)

OPTION TWO - You can qualify by established time standards at any USAT SANCTIONED half iron-distance or full iron-distance event in the nation. You must qualify by the time standards at all events outside the qualfiying event network. Example: The only way to qualify at 70.3 events is by time the standards listed below.

Qualifer status is determined by rounding down to the nearest whole minute. For example, if you are a 27 year-old male (required qualifying time: 5:40), and your finish time is 5:40:15, you qualify.

If you qualify in or after July 1st, you can choose to race in EITHER the current year or the following year Championship. You must choose one, it does not qualify you for both years.

You will compete in your age group as of Dec. 31st.

Since it is any HIM or IM race after July 1 (if they mean 2009), it looks like I have qualified as well. Hopefully others will read this and realize that they, too, have already qualified too! We need to secure our first place title! I am going to email and confirm of the date timeframe as well. I will let you know what I find out.

I just received this response:

Yes, it is on or after July 1, 2009, so it looks like you have qualified. Sorry it was not clear enough, I will have to add that so there isn't any confusion! Hope that clarified everything for you.

I am sure there are many more people out there who have qualified. So if you ran a HIM or IM after July 1, 2009, see if you met the time standards.

Courtney, looks like you are in!

Damn!!!! I am emailing the race director and see if they can help me switch to the Half IM Distance. Might as well go big or go home.
