St. Croix to Host Ironman Triathlon

The 26th Annual St. Croix Ironman 70.3 mile race will take place tomorrow, sponsored primarily by Captain Morgan.  Up for grabs are 30 spots in the Ironman Hawaii event and 40 spots in the Ironman 70.3 World Championship, plus monetary prizes for top finishers including $10,000 for the top male and female triathletes.  This year a relay option is offered for the first time.  As always, a host of local volunteers will be along the island-wide route to ensure the safety and comfort of athletes during the race.
