Together we did it! By all accounts, Ironman Canada's first year in the Sea to Sky was a success and we have so many people to thank for it. Our deepest thanks go out to Pemberton and Whistler residents; our 2,600 volunteers from Sea to Sky and beyond; our 2,600 athletes; our local event and operations partners; and our thousands of enthusiastic, off-the-chart-awesome spectators.
Thank you to everyone, and we mean everyone, for your patience during race-day traffic interruptions and to the many people who jumped in and helped out wherever they saw we could use a hand. The passion and generosity of the Pemberton and Whistler communities made a huge impression on our athletes. And none of them can stop talking about the beauty of this region — thanks for sharing it with us.
The first year of staging an Ironman event in any venue has its challenges, but with your tremendous help and support, Ironman Canada 2013 is already legend in Ironman circles. We can't wait to return for Ironman Canada 2014, on July 27, 2014. Many of you have offered great suggestions for next year and we welcome your feedback at email@example.com.
Looking forward to Ironman Canada 2014 and sharing another stunning weekend with you.
