What if there's no venue near me?
Sorry, there's not a lot we can do. The tournament relies on local clubs volunteering to run the event. You could volunteer your club to take part (but don't forget to check with the committee first!). If you would like to put your club forward to take part in this year's event please fill in the form here:

Who can take part in the Ironman Challenge?
The tournament is open to all registered members of Archery Interchange who can meet the criteria of the clubs participating; i.e. if the venue is a GNAS club and it's a requirement of the club that all registered participants be GNAS members then you must be a GNAS member. Some clubs do hold their own insurance to allow anyone to shoot so please check the local venue details in the AIUK shop.
