Old IM St. George Bike Course Map
Quote | Reply
As I prepare to go back to St. George for the 70.3 next month I am thinking back to when I did the full the first year (I believe that was 2010). It seems the bike course is very different but I am not sure how that could be the case. Does anyone have the map of the full course that first year of the event? Thanks in advance.

No map.
But look it up yourself on google maps.
In 2010 the climb lead up to route 18 at Veyo (Gunkock Drive).
The new course climbs up to route earlier 18 through Snow Canyon.

The course actually feels pretty similar.
The 2010 climb had a longer build up.
And you had to do it twice.

The current climb is shorter but of similar difficulty.

I look at Garmin Connect for things like this.
Was it a 3 loop cycle course?

Thanks, I found one on google. It was the route to Gunlock that I had in my mind.

I did that race the last year in 2012, that bike course was hard and it was blowing 20-30mph that day.

2010 and 2011; great course. Too bad it was too scary for people...

Definitely, but I think part of the problem was that not many people knew where St George was and how spectacular the course was, how it was a great place for a post race vacation and really a cool destination for a race. Nowadays the 70.3 has established itself and draws a big crowd every year. I think if it wasn't for the fact we have enough races on the calendar already (which no longer sell out right away), a 140.6 could do quite well in St George. I'd definitely do it again.
