High marks for Ironman Lake Placid

February 9, 2017 - Morgan Ryan
Just received this from our friends over at Ironman ...

Attention Media –  

For the first time, we have released the Top 10 scoring events in a variety of categories based solely off athlete surveys from all of our 2016 races globally.  

We announced this today and IRONMAN Lake Placid ranked in the Top 10 in multiple categories (including a top honor) so wanted to provide you with the information attached and below. In 2016, we had 40 IRONMAN and 96 IRONMAN 70.3 events globally so this is a major credit to Lake Placid.

  IRONMAN Lake Placid was selected 5th in Overall Satisfaction, 1st in Best Overall Bike, 6th in Best Overall Run, 3rd in Best Race Venue Experience, 8th in Best Host City Experience, and 4th in Will Recommend To A Friend. -  

Here is some additional detail on this that may be helpful as well:

-For every IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 event we send a post event survey to all athletes who competed that encompasses the respective areas in the attached. Based on the cumulative results, we then are able to rank the Top 10 global events.

-Surveys are on a 5 point satisfaction scale.

-We had over 55,000 total respondents for the survey.

-The 2017 edition of IRONMAN Lake Placid  will take place on July 23 –

-The 2017 edition of IRONMAN 70.3 Lake Placid will take place on Sept. 10 –
