In the spirit of the Ironman St. George, the 3rd
annual Ivins Fitness Festival at UNITY Park offers fun
activities to promote fitness and health, as well as
an exciting opportunity to watch the race up close.
Among the attractions of the festival are vendors
promoting health-conscious food, children’s
activities, a tennis demonstration and games
throughout the day, including a Two-Ball tournament.
will also be former contestants from The Biggest Loser
reality television show on hand to demonstrate how
eating a healthy diet and staying active has impacted
their lives. But as the event coincides with the
ongoing Ironman, the race and its participants will
undoubtedly be the main focus of the day.
UNITY Park, located
at 200 West and 400 South in Ivins, is the official
viewing point for the bicycle portion of the triathlon
(comprised of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and
26.2 mile run). Though there is plenty to do at the
festival itself, Ivins City Parks and Recreation
administrative assistant Jennifer Chapman said that
this year, the organizers are trying to offer more
support to the racers. All activities and
entertainment will be moved closer to the course and
there will be plenty of opportunities for the crowd to
support the Ironman (or woman) of their choice.
The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 5.
At 6:30 a.m., there will be a free 4 mile Fun Run in
which any members of the public can participate. Those
interested in registering for the run or as volunteer
or vendor are encouraged to visit the Ivins city
