    This was my 1st ultra-distance triathlon, and I couldn’t be happier. Everything about the experience was great. Loved the pre-race activities, the on-course support, fans, the course. This is a must-do Ironman if you live in the Southwest. Plan for a long weekend (Thursday thru Monday) to get your money’s worth. The most important tip for anyone thinking of doing this race is to book lodging early (say 1yr in advance). The event doesn’t sell out as quickly as it used to, but lodging can be a challenge if you want to be within a mile of the event.

    I had an amazing time at the race. As a first time Ironman I had no idea what to expect. The volunteers were beyond amazing and so was the race production. Everything that you needed was there for you. Everyone had answers to my questions and there was a great vibe at the race. I loved everything about it. The race started on time which is always a plus as well. There were so many people racing but it was a well oiled machine. There was no lag anywhere in the race. I had a wonderful time.
