Ironman St. George 2012 was another HUGE success! Speaking as a lifetime local, real estate professional whose’ business is affected by these events, and Ironman Volunteer “Captain”, I can tell you that the electricity that comes to town with the event is second to none. EVERYONE in the community is affected for the better, not to mention the $5-$6 million in tourism revenue that flows in as well.
Next year the event will become “Ironman St. George 70.3”, or a “1/2” Ironman. It will still be fantastic. This shorter distance will create less traffic impact, bring more racers and their families, and still bring the fantastic “Ironman” branding.
Until then, enjoy the best race footage available from the 2012 race. For those that know me personally, YES that’s me in the Volunteer video.
