IRONMAN Canada 2017 In Pemberton
The 2017 IRONMAN Canada makes its return to Pemberton and Whistler this July 30th. Come out to watch and cheer on participants as they race through Whistler and the village of Pemberton. The IRONMAN Canada tests the physical and mental strength and endurance of competitors who take up this extremely difficult task.
This is the fourth time IRONMAN Canada has been held here in the beautiful Sea to Sky Corridor, but it may be the last for Pemberton. Residents have noted safety concerns for bikers riding on Pemberton Meadows Road and plans for next year are still up in the air. You can check out the Pique Newsmagazine article for more information about the safety concerns.
But, if you haven't had a chance to check out all the excitement that is IRONMAN Canada yet, we suggest you do so this year.
Be apart of the action as you watch participants ride through town and back again. Racers will hit a checkpoint up the Pemberton Valley and then turn around and ride back to Whistler. People are encouraged to spectate and cheer on the contestants as they pass by.
Not sure where to watch it from? Head on over to the Pemberton Community Centre and join in on the fun at the Pemberton Cheer Section!

Pemberton is the halfway point for the athletes, which means they're going to need all the extra encouragement we can give them. Come out to the Pemberton & District Community Centre where there will be a live broadcast on a massive large screen that you can watch with all your buddies. Or watch it live in action as they ride by the Community Centre twice. There will also be a bunch of activities for spectators to do as they watch. Come on out and have a good time whether it's watching, volunteering, or cheering on the athletes - IRONMAN Canada is worth checking out!
