Being an Ironman

So we went to St. George and while we were there there was the Ironman Triathlon and boy it so crazy to see.

So what is the Ironman Race?

Swim: 2.4 miles

Bike: 112 miles

Run: 26 miles

We watched the race in St. George and here are some things I learned:

  • There are cut off times for all of the sections

  • It starts at 7am goes till midnight

  • The main cost is $600 or $1200 for the Ironman Foundation

  • They have Ironman in many parts of the world

  • There are different age groups to compete in

  • You have food like powerbars along the way, water, wet cloths and porta-potties
