ST. GEORGE RESIDENTS ARE BRACING FOR THE ARRIVAL OF SOME 2800, WORLD CLASS ATHLETES... FROM 42 STATES AND 23 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES.

THOSE ARE THE COMPETITORS WHO HAVE PRE-REGISTERED FOR SATURDAY'S 70-MILE IRONMAN COMPETITION.

KEVIN LEWIS -- WITH THE SOUTHERN UTAH TOURISM BUREAU -- SAYS THE ANNUAL EVENT HAS A BIG IMPACT ON UTAH'S DIXIE, AS THOUSANDS OF VOLUNTEERS WORK FOR WEEKS, PREPARING FOR IT.

THE IRONMAN RACE WILL FORCE SEVERAL ROAD CLOSURES.

BUT CITY OFFICIALS SAY, RESIDENTS HAVE GROWN ACCUSTOMED TO IT... AND ENJOY THE INTERNATIONAL ATTENTION.
