The celebration on being awarded the full IRONMAN continues. The IRONMAN association made the announcement last week that Huntsville will host the triathlon event on August 30th 2015. Mayor Claude Doughty says having the event on the weekend before Labour Day is a great window for the town.

Having the full IRONMAN in Huntsville will be great for our economy. Doughty says it`s probably going to be the biggest economic impact in the town`s fiscal year.

It took a lot of work to make this event possible for our community. Doughty says the local organizations and volunteers involved should be congratulated.
