IRONMAN 70.3 St. George – North American Championship
May 6, 2017
The 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 North American Pro Championship St. George triathlon attracted more than 11,000 visitors and infused an estimated $8 million into the local economy, according to data gathered by the Washington County Office of Sports and Recreation.
“The immediate economic impact of this event is substantial, but the long-term opportunities it provides go far beyond the boost that comes on race week,” said Kevin Lewis, Director of the St. George Area Sports Commission. “This event generates more media exposure than just about any event we have here, and the stories and images that are shared help reveal the amazing dynamics of our people and our landscapes.”
St. George has hosted IRONMAN events for the past seven years and has flourished as one of the most popular venues in the world because of its challenging course, unmatched scenery and tremendous community support.
