Athletes from around the world will venture to Oldham County next month for the Ford Ironman Louisville competition.
Yet some Oldham residents would prefer if the athletes and spectators just stayed home.
The event is a triathlon encompassing Jefferson and Oldham counties.
Ironman includes swimming for 2.4 miles, biking for 112 miles and running for 26.2 miles, all in succession. The top two finishers for each age group will qualify for the October world championship in Kona, Hawaii.
