BEST OVERALL SWIM

BEST RACE VENUE EXPERIENCE

4. Little Debbie IRONMAN Chattanooga presented by McKee A Family Bakery: “The city was awesome. every where I went, I felt like a rockstar. the community was well-informed of the event and they were all very kind EVERYWHERE I went.”

BEST HOST CITY EXPERIENCE

7. Little Debbie IRONMAN Chattanooga presented by McKee A Family Bakery: “IRONMAN events run like clockwork and everyone working and volunteering is so welcoming and clearly really dedicated to providing a seamless and enjoyable experience. The city and citizens of Chattanooga were also incredibly welcoming: the billboards, signs on every business, the Y letting athletes use facilities for free, and restaurant owners going out of their way to please were incredible. Not every city lays out the red carpet like that.”
