North American Pro Champioships, St. George: Thousands of triathletes to become part of the IRONMAN 70.3

IRONMAN 70.3 st. George


This weekend’s event it’s also known as the ultimate spring tradition for the people of Southern Utah who are desperately waiting for the big day to come.


This year, there are more than 2,500 triathletes who have decided to become part of the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 of the North American Pro Championships event in St. George.


The big race is set to take place on Saturday, May 5 and it’s definitely going to provide some breathtaking moments for the sport’s fanatics.


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.”
