Local Businesses Need to Prepare For IRONMAN Chattanooga

By -

On Sunday, September 28, Mayor Berke, the City of Chattanooga will play host to IRONMAN Chattanooga. An athletic event of this caliber will put Chattanooga in a new league as a sports and outdoors destination. We know the event will bring a real impact on our city, bringing an estimated 12,000 participants, families and spectators to Chattanooga and an economic impact of roughly $8 Million annually.

With an event of this size and scope, it is important to communicate with businesses and residents who could potentially be impacted. That’s why the City of Chattanooga is inviting the residents and businesses to an upcoming IRONMAN Meeting, to hear directly from the race director and others involved on what exactly to expect on race day as well as the days leading up to the event.

WHEN: Wednesday, August 6 at 9 a.m.
