IRONMAN, St. George, Utah 2012

This is the last year for a full Ironman in St. George, Utah.  Hereafter the event will become an Ironman 70.3.  The main two reasons cited have been first the early date in the Ironman season leaves little time to train for the event.  This is compounded by the St. George course being among one of the most challenging in the world.   St. George LOVES the Ironman event and are looking forward to the continued partnership.  Good luck athletes.

From the Ironman Website:

Ironman St. George has become renowned as one of the most family-friendly races on the Ironman circuit, in part because of the many hiking areas and state parks around the area. Athletes have enjoyed their time in St. George over the years. 99% of the respondents in a post-race athlete survey gave St. George the highest possible rating, saying it was a “great place with friendly people,” while 86% considered the race to be “fabulous.” Three out of four of the athletes who have competed at the event say they’ll return for a vacation, while more than half said they’ll be back to train in the area.”

Here’s a great photo of the cacti blooming in front of Best Western Coral Hills.  After much discussion, and watching, it was determined that these beautiful flowers, once they bloom, only stick around for about two days.

Encore! Brian Regan Returns to Tuacahn

Brian Regan returns to Tuacahn Thursday – Saturday, May 10-12, 2012 8:00pm

Brian Regan Returns to Tuacahn near St. George, UT

American’s favorite comedian returns to Tuacahn by popular demand!

Critics and peers agree: Brian Regan has distinguished himself as one of the premier comedians in the country. The perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality, Brian fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations.

Releasing two critically acclaimed hour Comedy Central specials and DVD’s in as many years–2008′s “The Epitome of Hyperbole,” and 2007′s “Brian Regan Standing Up”–Brian has set a standard of excellence that others continually try to follow.

Brian’s non-stop theater tour has visited more than 80 cities each year since 2005 and continues through 2012. It is the quality of his material, relatable to a wide audience and revered by his peers, which continues to grow Brian’s fan base. In March Brian broke the record for the most consecutive shows by a comedian at Abravanal Hall in Salt Lake City with five sold out performances. The previous record was four shows set by Jerry Seinfeld in 2005.

With his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show and has now made more than 20 appearances. He also includes regular visits with Conan O’Brien on his schedule.

Tickets can be purchased directly with Tuacahn or packaged through Best Western Coral Hills for a discount on your room.
