Ironman Running

Ironman 70.3

Described as an early-season race with breathtaking American Southwest scenery, and fresh, crisp, spring air. The Ironman 70.3 in St. George, Utah was voted by participants as “Best Race Venue” and “Best Host City Experience”. It is thought by some triathletes to be the nation’s 2nd toughest Ironman 70.3 Triathlon.

Set in Southern Utah’s spectacularly beautiful red rock country, approximately 2500 ironmen – and ironwomen – will run a half marathon of 13.1 miles through the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, complete a 56-mile bicycle ride and swim 1.2 miles at Sand Hollow Reservoir – all completed in succession within 17 hours beginning at 7 a.m. and ending no later than midnight.

The Snow Canyon climb is a difficult task to complete, but is lined with motivational posters from the local tri clubs. If you are a returning athlete – even a newcomer – you’ll be pleased to know the first eight miles of the bike course through Snow Canyon have been repaved, and are now “smooth as silk.”

Before and after this grueling event, you’ll also enjoy the city’s walkable downtown area, which offers great local fare and boutique shopping. Perfect for enjoying the sunny spring weather (be prepared for daytime temperatures in the 90’s). Also remember, St. George is only two hours from the nightlife of Las Vegas, with its never-ending entertainment options.
