IFS St. George, Utah - 5/6/2023 – Iron Man 70.3 World Championships
Each month our First Saturday events travel the state of Utah highlighting some of the festivals and events that make Utah such an amazing place.
This month, the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship race actually took place in St. George at the same time as First Saturday so we thought it would be a perfect subject for this month's Ingress First Saturday in Utah.
Intermountain Health IRONMAN 70.3 North American Championship St. George is an iconic race where athletes from all over the world come to prove themselves against this legendary course. In a land sculpted by persistence and determination, athletes looking for an epic challenge will navigate a path through two iconic state parks, basalt lava fields, and a fragile desert reserve as they rise to conquer one of the most prestigious and striking events in the world.
The adventure doesn’t stop when you cross the finish line. Greater Zion’s breathtaking scenery and views of the surrounding red rock canyons have made the region an ideal destination for athletes for years. With a million-year geologic history and a desert location at the edge of the Pine Valley Mountains and Zion National Park, St. George is the poster child of the American Southwest. In this desert of extremes, a land carved by ancient seas, a challenge lies waiting. Rise to it. This is the Land of Endurance.
