Is Dig supporting Ironman? Ironman World Championships in Hawaii for 2021 were postponed. St. George was awarded the opportunity to host those athletes on our turf in 2022. Dig crew members have been supporting open water triathlons and other aquatic events in six western states for almost 15 years, having coordinated and contributed thousands of man-hours to benefit these dedicated athletes.

What a Party! We gathered some of our favorite people and drove south to Parker Dam Arizona near Lake Havasu to participate in "Another Dam Race". It was well worth the drive.  Just a bunch of clowns getting psyched up to hit the water.  The weather was perfect 80 degrees and a very slight breeze to start the race. The race began with a polynesian style dedication, haka, song and blessing over the event.  After which participants began piling into the river to start the race.  Wave after wave of Outrigger canoes started the race off followed by kayakers and...
