A Message from the Mayor

Ironman Participants,

On behalf of the residents of Tempe, welcome to our community for the Ford Ironman Arizona!

Tempe is well known as a host city for high-profile sporting events, but we know our success is owed

to your and your supporters for choosing to come here. Without you, our lake and roads are empty,

as are our hotels, restaurants and nightclubs. In return, we gratefully will give all Tempe can to make

your visit an enjoyable one.

Ford Ironman Arizona is made possible through the sacrifices of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian

Community, and its contributions should not go unmentioned. I also would like to thank the countless

volunteers and professional staffers who have graciously given their time and energy; they are crucial

to the success of this event.

During your swim, ride and run, we hope you will see enough to consider a return visit. Other attractions

include Cactus League baseball and cultural offerings. Our city is renowned as a great place to

live, work and play, and we want to show you what Tempe has to offer.

Again, thanks for coming to Tempe and Ford Ironman Arizona. We hope your visit will be safe, enjoyable,

memorable and, most of all, fast.


Hugh Hallman
