IRONMAN Canada Comes to Pemberton! - Aug 25, 2013
Date: Sunday, August 25, 2013
Time: 9 AM to 4:30 PM - Athletes cycling in Pemberton
Where: Whistler and Pemberton
IRONMAN Canada is coming
to Whistler and Pemberton this August. This amazing test
of endurance, strength and heart is one of the sternest physical
tests one can but their body through. Athletes competing in these
events around the world train up to a year in advance to be ready
for the physical toll.
This marks the first time Whistler and Pemberton have ever held
the event. The Sea to Sky will be on full display for the world
when IRONMAN Canada makes it's debut here.
The 2013 IRONMAN Canada Course
The course will begin in Whistler when athletes complete
two loops of Alta Lake. From here athletes will transition to the
bike for a one loop course that stretches from the Callaghan Valley
to the Upper Meadows of Pemberton. Athletes will finish the race by
completing two loops of the Valley Trail, winding past Lost Lake
and Green Lake in Whistler before they make triumphant finish at
Whistler's Olympic Plaza.
During the bike portion of the race athletes will be
making their way through the Village of Pemberton. Riders
will make their way up the Pemberton Valley until they reach a
check point at which time they will turn around and ride back to
Whistler. During this portion of the race people are encouraged to
come out and cheer on these amazing athletes. Pemberton will serve
as the half way point of the race so athletes will need our
encouragement to get them to the finish line.
Pemberton CHEER SECTION
Pemberton will be hosting a CHEER
SECTION at the intersection of Highway 99 and the entrance
to the Village of Pemberton. Providing music, entertainment, food,
and of course, awesome viewing of the athletes.
So wear RED and come join the
excitement while we watch IRONMAN Canada athletes bike through
