Back in September Steve DelMonte, owner and founder of DelMoSports http://delmosports.com/ put on the second Ironman 70.3 Triathlon in Atlantic City. And, I would add with GREAT success. It was a sell-out of 2,700 athletes and was voted the #1 large Triathlon in the United States. And, guess what? The backdrop of this event was — ATLANTIC CITY!!!
Spend any time with Steve DelMonte and you will quickly feel his passion and enthusiasm he has for Atlantic City as a great venue for these types of events. Beautiful Ocean and Boardwalk, biking through the Pinelands of New Jersey in a MAJOR resort town. While the athletes love the course their families and friends enjoy the city just as much. I have said it before that Atlantic City can do events and these sport related tourism activities are well within our wheelhouse. Think about it – Ironman – the number one brand of Triathlons chose AC to be an ambassador for its brand. Pretty good company.
They are coming back again – join DelMoSports for IRONMAN 70.3 next year September 23, 2018.
We need to keep focused on this type of tourism and expand and grow it. Fun –runs – Marathons – Ocean Swims – Volleyball – Soccer – Rugby- Lacrosse – Wrestling – Cheerleading – Basketball and the list goes on and on.
Start working out and hope to see you next year at the IRONMAN.
Keep Moving (running, biking and swimming) Forward.
