The Kona Pro Ranking (or KPR for short) is the system used to determine which Professional triathletes qualify for the Ironman World Championships in Kona.
The 2018 KPR Observer consists of Initial Information about the KPR and ongoing updates during the season.
The Initial Information (delivered at the time of purchase) contains:
- a description of how the KPR works in qualifying Pros for Kona
- base projections for the men's and women's cutoff
- graphs and descriptions of the current KPR standings
As the season progresses, you will also receive the monthly "TriRating Newsletter" with race results and the implications for Kona qualifying (who is already in, who is close to qualifying, how many slots are still open and updated estimates of where the cutoffs will occur). You will also be able to ask questions via EMail.
If you want to qualify as a Pro, coach a Pro athlete, write about professional Ironman racing or are otherwise interested in the KPR, this is must-read information!
(If you are a Professional athlete looking to qualify for Kona, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive information about a complimentary copy.)
The time you'll save with the KPR Observer is easily worth the price of 29$ for the full season.
