Ironman Kansas Registration Still OPEN

The 2009 Ironman 70.3 Kansas is still accepting registrations.

A typo appeared in the recent Triathlete Magazine "The Road to Kona & Clearwater" stating that the 2009 Ironman 70.3 Kansas was SOLD OUT. That information is incorrect, the event is NOT SOLD OUT and is still accepting registration. The event is filling fast and does have less than 500 spots left so register before it is too late!
