St George Canned

    After entering transition in St. George’s historic Town Square, athletes will begin the one-loop course that heads out on Diagonal and Bluff Street before climbing up Red Hills Parkway through the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve. The course offers an amazing view of the city while running along the bluff before returning to the finish line located on Main Street right in the heart of down town St. George.

    The bike course will take athletes around Sand Hollow Reservoir through the towns of Hurricane and Washington, before making its way toward the city of St George. After crossing the Red Hill Bluff athletes will proceed on Snow Canyon parkway and up through the picturesque Snow Canyon State Park, before returning to town on SR 18 and finishing at T2 located in downtown St. George.

    The swim will be held at the scenic Sand Hollow State Park in Hurricane Utah. The one–loop swim course will take place in the beautiful blue water of Sand Hollow Reservoir. The water temperature is expected to be between 60 and 64 degrees Fahrenheit.
    Make sure you check out the all new GPS tracking here of today’s pro race. Athletes were given the option to wearing a GPS unit during the swim but it is mandatory to have a tracker on them during the bike and run portions of the race.
