How to get around Washington County

The idea of ​​an IRONMAN triathlon isn’t new to St. George – the city has hosted IRONMAN events every year since 2010. But what about the upcoming game this Saturday? Expect it to be bigger than ever, especially for anyone looking to negotiate traffic around Washington County.

Saturday’s race starts early in the morning and doesn’t finish until midnight, marking a return to the full 140-mile distance used in previous triathlons in the region in the early 2010s, meaning the route will cover a large swath of the county , including along major roads such as State Route 18 and State Route 9, which are the main roads leading to Zion National Park.

Additionally, this year’s event is the official 2021 IRONMAN World Championship, which was held to make up for last year’s cancellation of the main event due to COVID-19 concerns, and Hawaii was originally planned for the event.
