I wanted to tell you that St George has the greatest hospitality of any race I’ve been to with Ironman -
(17+ full Ironman‘s & 30+ 1/2 ironman’s)
The entire town and neighboring communities in Washington County really know how to make you feel
welcome and appreciated.
What does this all mean?
“St. George has proven itself time and again to be a world class
venue, where Champions choose to rise to the challenge, in the
Land of Endurance.
As a result, it is with great excitement that we let you know that
the IRONMAN St. George event on May 7, 2022 will now become
the 2021 edition of the IRONMAN World Championship. St. George
will also host the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship on
October 28, 29, 2022.”

“Maybe the biggest event in Utah since the 2002 Winter
Olympics, as far as a world-wide marquee brand.”
- Jeff Robbins, CEO, Utah Sports Commission
Hosting large-scale international sporting events like the
IRONMAN World Championship are important to the state’s
preparations for an Olympic bid.
- Sarah Hirshland, CEO, United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee
How is Utah preparing?
What is Red Bull Rampage?
Video available online at redbull.com HERE.
How did we get here?
“A poor and worthless place.”
- Parley P. Pratt
G R E A T E R Z I O N
Historically there wasn’t a tourism component
“If I had a house in hell and a house
in St. George, I’d rent out the one in
St. George and live in hell.”
- J. Golden Kimball
G R E A T E R Z I O N
Historically there wasn’t a tourism component
“Ever since this country was settled,
people have been occupied almost
exclusively with wresting a living from the
soil and getting a toehold economically.”
- Orval Hafen, early 1900s
G R E A T E R Z I O N
Orval Hafen
“Instead of the isolated little farms and cattle
ranches, we may be in the midst of a
recreational center, which will entirely
change our attitudes, our outlook, our
associations, our opportunities….Pine Valley
mountain, Zion Park, Bryce, Grand Canyon,
and more parks to be created around us, will
draw millions of people in the next few
years.”
- Orval Hafen, 1930s
G R E A T E R Z I O N
Early vision
“Our reasons for building a golf course are
mostly to attract people from outside to come
here and spend their money.”
- Orval Hafen

Using Greater Zion
Assets
• Media assets are reserved for direct tourism-related purposes from tourism
related entities.
• Use of the term Greater Zion as part of your business or brand name in direct
relation to your business is not proper.
• It is not appropriate to attach the Greater Zion brand to a specific entity or
offering, or imply that there is a direct relationship between the business
entity and Greater Zion.
• Use of all Greater Zion assets must be clearly attributed.
Greater Zion: The Place
Greater Zion as a place is a term that belongs to the community.
Similar to: Wine Country, Mile High City, Windy City, etc.
Greater Zion: The Brand
The Greater Zion brand, including logo, marks, and brand assets are the
intellectual property of the Greater Zion Convention & Tourism Office and
should only be used with approval.
