This is a very exciting week at Shelby Farms Park! We are proud to be the site for the St. Jude IRONMAN 70.3 Memphis and can’t wait to host more than 2,400 elite athletes and more than 5,000 spectators on Saturday, October 1 for this special event. These triathletes will be swimming, biking, and running in and around the Park.
On Saturday, all traffic must enter off of Mullins Station. The Park is open on Saturday, but please note that the entire Park will be impacted by this event and your time at the Park will not be what you regularly experience. Be prepared for additional traffic, delays and road closures in and around the Park. CLICK HERE for the traffic impact guide and CLICK HERE for course maps. Only Gate 10 off of Mullins Station and the Dog Park will be open to the public for access until 4pm.
Remember to pack your patience and to be careful and courteous as you maneuver through traffic and parking areas! Spectators are welcome to visit the IRONMAN Expo and cheer on the athletes.
