IRONMAN 70.3 St. George
Swim. Bike. Run.
We hope to see you in St. George for this great event.
This striking Southwestern home of one of IRONMAN’s original full-distance races now hosts one of the season’s earliest IRONMAN 70.3 races.
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. On the opposite end of the spectrum, St. George is only two hours from the nightlife of Las Vegas, with its never-ending entertainment options.
The swim is held a few miles away in pristine Sand Hollow Reservoir. The bike and run courses are two of the most challenging on the IRONMAN 70.3 circuit, but what goes up must come down, which means epic descends. 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 clubs, helping to ease the difficulty of the physical task at hand. Plus, returning athletes and newcomers alike will be pleased to learn that the first eight miles of the bike course through Snow Canyon have been repaved and are now “buttery smooth.”
