IRONMAN Canada is returning to Whistler and Pemberton July 30th, 2017. This marks the fourth year Whistler and Pemberton will have held the event. This amazing test of endurance, strength and heart is one of the sternest physical tests one can but their body through. Athletes competing in these events around the world train up to a year in advance to be ready for the physical toll.
Pemberton Cheer Section
During the bike portion of the race athletes will be making their way through the Village of Pemberton. Riders will make their way up the Pemberton Valley until they reach a check point at which time they will turn around and ride back to Whistler. During this portion of the race people are encouraged to come out and cheer on these amazing athletes. Pemberton will serve as the half way point of the race so athletes will need our encouragement to get them to the finish line.
Pemberton LIVE Site at the Pemberton Community Centre
The Pemberton Cheer Section will be held at the Pemberton & District Community Centre (a few hundreds yards from the entrance to the Village of Pemberton off highway 99). There will be a live site (BIG BIG SCREEN) and plenty of activities! So be sure to join us in Pemberton for a great IRONMAN Canada viewing experience!
