Qualification[edit]

The 2007 Ironman 70.3 Series featured 23 events that enabled qualification to the 2007 World Championship event.[4] In the second year of WTC's 70.3 race series the number of races increased as the series expanded outside of North America with new events such as those in Austria, Germany, Monaco, Singapore, and Switzerland.

Qualifying for the 2007 Ironman 70.3 Championship was based on allocated slots available at each qualifying event, usually 50, though could vary from race to race. Slots were allocated to amateur triathletes in each age group category, male and female, with the number of slots given out based on that category's proportional representation of the overall field. Each age group category would be tentatively allocated one qualifying spot in each qualifying event. Professional athletes could qualify for the championships by obtaining one of the 10% of the available qualifying spots at that event. Thus, if 50 available spots were allocated, 45 slots would be distributed among the amateur athletes and 5 were available to pro athletes.
