Important Notes and Caveats

1. Consider this analysis as best estimates based on current data; 
2. Events, Dates and Kona or Vegas Slots -- are based on data published on race web sites as of 12/5/12
3. Our listed estimate of participants per race is the number we expect may have entered by race day
4. The listed estimate of participants is NOT necessarily the number currently registered
5. A unexpected wide variety of things can change between now and race day for certain events; examples:
-- a race's Kona slots have been known to change with little notice
-- weather or other conflicts may impact the race distance or race date
-- sometimes races open additional entry opportunities after being declared Sold Out
6. Mandatory: for latest and most accurate information, visit the event race sites or
