Why? Because there are a number of factors that make IRONMAN Arizona unique, even among IRONMAN events.
1 – A late-year date.
IRONMAN AZ is usually the last IRONMAN event of the year. This is, of course, largely due to Arizona’s weather. It would be impossible to hold it during the summer, but November is a different matter. November is one of the nicest possible times to visit Arizona – both the days and nights are extremely pleasant.
2 – An urban focus.
Most IRONMAN competitions take place largely in the wilderness, which makes them difficult for spectators to enjoy – particularly if they’re in forests or on mountains. IRONMAN AZ is unique in that at least a couple of the events are always held within the Tempe metro area itself, providing far more opportunities for visitors to take in the action.
3 – Geography
A whole lot of Arizona, particularly the desert, is flat. Foot or bike races are almost always about speed and endurance rather than climbing. So even events which take place outside the city usually remain highly visible to spectators, particularly if someone finds some decent high ground such as on top of a building or a nearby mesa.
And what this all adds up to is:
4 – Huge Popularity
Year after year, IRONMAN AZ is consistently the most popular IRONMAN event in the country. It can be reliably expected to sell out early, which in turn means that there will be a lot of people all making travel reservations early as well. Everyone wants to have the best possible views, and the most comfortable accommodations, for their IRONMAN trip.
