HIGHLANDS COUNTY SCENE

Tenth Annual Heartland Triathlon By Cherie Patrick Starr Photos by Katara Simmons The 10th Annual Heartland Triathlon was a tremendous success with the largest crowd in the events history and nearly 1,000 competitors. The events were held on June 20th for the Youth and June 21st for the Adult Sprint and Olympic Distance. The competitors Swim in the clear, spring-fed waters of Lake Jackson, ride on the smooth, fast paced Bike course on the open roads north of Sebring and Run the historic downtown Sebring circle to the finish line! If you were fortunate to finish in the top 5 in your age group, you’d love the armload of unique awards you walked away with. The Heartland Triathlon is an event created by Triathletes for Triathletes and their families. This annual event received a tremendous amount of support by the local community.
