The Ironman 70.3 North American Pro Championship St. George triathlon led athletes along a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike and 13.1-mile run on a course that utilized the beautiful city and surrounding landscape of St. George. Athletes began their day with a single-loop swim in the protected waters of Sand Hollow Reservoir. Once out of the water, participants embarked upon a single-loop bike course through the towns of Hurricane, Washington and St. George before proceeding up Snow Canyon parkway and through the picturesque Snow Canyon State Park. The single-loop run course wound through the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve and offered amazing views of St. George while running along the bluff before returning to the finish line on Main Street in the heart of downtown. The race awarded a total of 30 age-group qualifying slots for the 2016 Ironman 70.3 World Championship, taking place in Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia on Sept. 4, 2016.
