Media are welcome to cover the IRONMAN 70.3 Aix-en-Provence, Sunday 17th May 2020, on the provision that an application for accreditation is submitted and approved.
Journalists and photographers can get as close to the athletes as spectators can without any access passes, which means that even without accreditation it will be possible be part of the event, photograph athletes and report directly from the IRONMAN 70.3 Aix-en-Provence
We can distribute accreditation to a limited number of journalists/photographers only. In the interest of the athletes we therefore ask you to specify in your application for accreditation for the following areas and facilities:
- Motorcycle and boat access*
- Finish line*
*Due to limited resources, motorcycle access is not guaranteed.
*As the Finish Line is a limited access area, media who cannot be accommodated on the Primary Finish Line Area will be given access to the Secondary Finish Line Area permitting media access to the winners in the Media Tent for interviews.
Only media representatives who have applied online in advance will be accredited.
Media Accreditation will take place on the following dates at the Organization Area, Place François Villon :
• Thursday 14th May : 10:00am - 07:00pm
• Friday 15th May: 10:00am - 07:00pm
• Saturday 16th May : 03:00pm - 07:00pm
VIP – NO media will be allowed into VIP unless they are in possession of VIP accreditation.
PRO interviews – All interviews will need to be conducted in the Media Tent near the Finish Line or be planned with the Media Manager.
TRANSITION – Only IRONMAN media with the correct accreditation (Blue and Red media) will be allowed in Transition
SWIM START – Only media with the correct accreditation (Blue and Red media) will be allowed in the Swim Start Area. For safety reasons no members of the media will be allowed to move in front of the starting cannon.
PRIMARY FINISH LINE AREA - Only media with the correct accreditation (Blue media) will be allowed in the Primary Finish Line Area.
Media who are not accredited to be in the Primary Finish Line Area (those in possession of the Blue Media) but who wish to interview the winners, will be allowed into the Secondary Finish Line Area and Media Tent for interview.
