Age-group athletes in the limelight in Ironman 70.3 Arizona results 2017

It was an all age-group race only and many excellent times were posted across all categories.

Paul Stevenson posted the fastest time of the day when he broke the tape in 4:07:37. It’s not that often that race winners come from the 18-24 age-group. As a rule endurance improves with age, so this could be a pro in the making with the best yet to come.

A case in point…..Sophie Chevrier was the fastest female on the day and she was racing in the 40-45 age-category. Her time was a very fast 4:35:56. Only two other women finished under the five hour mark.

Monica Folts of the 30-34 category crossed the line in 4:49:26, and Kyndal Sorenson from the 25-29 category posted a time of 4:59:10.

Congratulations to all those who took part in the race. I hope you all realized your race day goals.

Just as a side-note….Not everyone got to race today as Ironman 70.3 New Orleans was cancelled due to extreme weather conditions. Difficult situation for all concerned.
