[Update April 13th: A new participant list came out April 8th, so I've updated the graphic with the new info. Registration dropped by another 50 spots, but there were 51 new names on the list, so 101 must have dropped out. Quite a few pros registered in the last month, including TJ Tolakson and Jodie Swallow (70.3 World Champ!).]
So I was looking at the participant lists for the 2011 and 2010 IronMan St. George, and noticed that there’s quite a difference between last year and this year. A big one being that there are still open slots for this year less than two months from race day, while there were over 2500 signups last year 9 months before the race!
Thought it would be interesting to compare the two, so spent some time this weekend making this infographic (when I probably should have been training!). Hope you like it!
