Macmillan will reimburse 30% of the sponsorship you raise, up to the cost of your IRONMAN or IRONMAN 70.3 entry fee.

What is an IRONMAN or IRONMAN 70.3?

An IRONMAN consists of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) cycle and a marathon 26.2-mile (42.2 km) run. An IRONMAN 70.3 is made up of a 1.2-mile (1.9 km) swim, a 56-mile (90 km) bike ride, and a 13.1-mile (21.1 km) run. Either distance is a chance to test yourself to the limit in one of the toughest events in the world.

What is the Macmillan Cancer Support reimbursement scheme?

Macmillan Cancer Support will reimburse 30% of any sponsorship you raise, up to the cost of your IRONMAN entry fee.

There's no minimum sponsorship target. So, for example, if you raise £100 then you'd be reimbursed £30. If you want to be reimbursed your full entry fee, the amount you need to raise would differ depending on how much you paid for your place. For example, if you paid £432 to enter IRONMAN UK, then you would need to raise £1440 to be reimbursed the full £432.

Why are Macmillan offering to reimburse sponsorship?

Reimbursing a percentage of your sponsorship is a risk-free way of fundraising for the charity and it can be cheaper for the charity than the cost of a charity package. If you have any questions about fundraising or why donations may be used in this way, please don't hesitate to contact Macmillan directly at triathlon@macmillan.org.uk.

What’s the fine print of the reimbursement scheme?

Macmillan Cancer Support will reimburse 30% of sponsorship up to the cost of your IRONMAN or IRONMAN 70.3 entry fee. Macmillan is only able to reimburse you:

  • After the event has taken place
  • When we have received proof of purchase of your entry fee
  • If you have agreed to Macmillan's terms & conditions prior to fundraising
  • When we have received all the sponsorship monies on which you wish us to calculate the reimbursement; we will only make a single reimbursement payment

Macmillan is only able to reimburse you directly, and will not pay the money directly to the IRONMAN race organisers. A full list of our terms & conditions can be found here.
