The annual event that draws the participation of Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community members and employees, is a chance to test individual and group teamwork. SRPMIC will once again, have representation in the form three competing teams and a lone Community member, who will take-on the challenge of swimming, biking and running against competitors from all over in Biostarks IRONMAN Arizona Triathlon on November 20.
The annual event is a hallmark event for the City of Tempe, which has been popular among athletes looking to shatter their Personal Record (PR). It is also is a chance for Ironman athletes to punch their ticket to the 2023 VinFast IRONMAN World Championships, that will take place next October in Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i.
