POLL: Which One? IM Mont-Tremblant vs IM U.S. Championship


tjimpollimmtvsimnyc.jpgWe have two NEW Ironman races, roughly 500 miles apart in the Northeast quadrant of North America taking place in the month of August in 2012. Based on this year's scheduled races this would be the 27th and 28th races in the global Ironman series, including the Ironman World Championship race in Kona.

Both Canada and New York state land their second Ironman races in the series, going up against the long established series triathlons, Ironman Canada and Ironmna Lake Placid.

Registration for both races opens next week, June 15th, 2011 and we were wondering which new race interested you the most. For some it could be the location, for others it could be the course, various reasons exist. We are just curious to see two new races go head to head and find which one people really like.

We want to know which would you rather do Ironman Mont-Tremblant or Ironman US Championship / New York City? Vote here >> http://twtpoll.com/r/qn4xnp

As of right now, Ironman Mont-Tremblant leads Ironman US Championship with 60% of the votes.

Note, rumors are going around that the entry fee for the Ironman US Championship race, which mostly take place in New Jersey and ends in New York could $1,000 USD. It totally possible... Guess you could take that into consideration now as well.

Note, we created the poll when the rumor was swirling that the new Ironman race in New York City would take place in August.

We will publish the result when the poll is over, roughly in 5 days.
