Date: Sunday, July 26, 2015
Where: Whistler & Pemberton
For the third year in a row, Whistler and Pemberton will
play host to the famous IRONMAN Canada race.
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 massive triathlon series is the most recognized endurance
race in the world and attracts thousands of participants everywhere
it goes. IRONMAN® Canada is our version of the Canadian
National Championship and offers up several qualifying spots for
the World Championships that take place every year
in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
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.
