ironman 70.3 St. George UT

Important information about Ironman 70.3

The Ironman 70.3 is a new challenging championship race that traverses the red rock canyons of the American Southwest. This is an early season race with breathtaking American Southwest scenery, and fresh, crisp spring air. The race is staged in and around the heart of St. George, with Zion National Park only 45 minutes away by car. The city’s walkable downtown area offers great local fare and boutique shopping—perfect for enjoying the sunny spring weather. St. George, UT is also only two hours from the nightlife of Las Vegas, with its 24 hour entertainment options.

This striking Southwestern home of one of Ironman’s original full-distance races is now hosting one of the season’s earliest Ironman 70.3 races ever. The race starts with a swim that is held a few miles away in pristine Sand Hollow Reservoir, where athletes are shuttled to the start line from the parking lot. The bike and run courses are two of the most challenging on the Ironman 70.3 circuit. That old saying ‘what goes up must come down’, holds true as some of the descents are really extreme. Both courses present spectacular views of downtown St. George, Snow Canyon and the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve. The Snow Canyon climb is lined with motivational posters from the local tri club, helping to ease the difficulty of the physical task at hand.

Ironman 70.3 St. George is also a Regional Ironman TriClub Championship race. In addition to members only special on-site events, athletes who are also members of a TriClub or Team will earn bonus points for their club towards the prestigious Ironman TriClub Annual Podium Award. You can email triclub@ironman.com for additional information. There are 30 qualifying slots in this race for the 2015 Ironman 70.3 World Championship.
