  • Comments: I think Ironman Canada stands out among the many other options for Full IM. The history of the event and the single lap courses are very good. The mountain passes are not as big of a deal as all the hype. That could probably be said about the Full Ironman event in general. Glad I did it, and it is tough... but not quite as difficult as expected. Originally I thought it would take about 12 hours to complete. So I was happy with 11:09.

  • Comments: This was such an amazing event! There were many "firsts" for me - first full Ironman, first full marathon, first IMC, etc. It was great that the names were on the race bibs. I felt I had thousands of fans cheering me on, and I did! The volunteers? Incredible! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Cannot state that enough. Am I a "one time Ironman finisher"? NOT! I will do this race again and will try other full Ironman distance races in the future, near future I hope.

  • Comments: This was my first Ironman race and a very enjoyable time.. everything went as good as expected dispite the very windy conditions during the ride and run and my very painfull knees.. I definatly could do better at this with some improvements to conditions and better knees... Overall a great experience!!

  • Comments: This is the last Ironman Canada I'll do for some time. I've now done three and it is time to move on to some other challenges and take a year focussing a little less on training and more on family. I am very happy by the results. I am also thrilled by the "mantrip" that Highwaydog and I had. It was a super experience, one that absolutely made this a great race that I will not soon forget. I am a 3X Ironman and The Chipgiver! p.s. Olga and Svetlana left the day after the race without incident or further graphic imagery.

  • Comments: I am happy with my first IMC. I definitely want to do another one, but there are other things (like my master`s degree) that have to be looked after first though. I had a wonderful day, spent the entire day smiling and talking to people, and other than some rough parts on the bike, can say I enjoyed every minute of it. I am an Ironman and that is pretty awesome!

  • Comments: I can easily say this was the best experience of my life. I had a dream of doing Ironman 5 years ago when I completed my first half marathon. After 2 marathons, 3 half ironmans and countless other races, I really did not think this goal could have been achieved so quickly! A lot of supportive people (Mom, Dad, Matt, and of course Krista) and a lot of good mentor's (Brendan, Nick, Lane, John M, Doug Mackenzie). Honestly can say I would never have been able to do this without the insight and knowledge they provided! I don't know if you can duplicate the feeling of crossing that line. It truly was a privilege to have that much fun at Ironman!

  • Comments: This race will make you feel like a champion whether you finish in 8:45 or 16:59. The main drag is packed and every town you go through on the bike and run has its own little party going on and there are 4500 volunteers for 3000 competitors. Amazing experience.
