IRONMAN 70.3 st. George

Gathering all in one


“The quality of triathletes participating in our race is superb. You will be blown away by the dynamic abilities they possess,” Director of the St. George Tourism Office, Kevin Lewis, said in an official press release.


“This is the 9th consecutive year St. George has hosted an IRONMAN event and each year it continues to get better.”


The event is known to welcome both amateur and professional triathletes looking for a challenge in one of the biggest, most important IORNMAN 70.3 events in North America.


“I think people come here because they want to be challenged,” Sebastien Kienle, a famous veteran triathlete who has won second and third place in St. George, and has grabbed one IRONMAN and two IRONMAN 70.3 titles, said.


“They like the tough course. It’s probably not a course where everybody sets a personal record, but that’s not what it’s all about. I think the experience you’ll have here you won’t find in other races.”
