IRONMAN Communities Task Force

About the IRONMAN Communities Task Force

The IRONMAN Communities Task Force has been formed to evaluate the economic and community impacts of the Lake Placid IRONMAN triathlon. The goal of this committee is to gather information through surveys, interviews, and data, to determine the impact of the IRONMAN Triathlon on our communities. Once due diligence has been completed, the task force will make recommendations on how best to proceed with IRONMAN in the future.

The timeline for the task force is targeted to be complete by the end of 2021.
