Third Annual Dixie Triathlon is September 18


The third annual Dixie Triathlon is September 18 at the Carroll County 1000-Acre Recreation Lake.

This “hidden gem” of a race is quickly gaining regional attention having sold out in each of its two years of existence, in addition to being dubbed by many participants as the “friendliest race” they’ve ever raced.

It attracts athletes from many states. Presently, there are 72 persons registered to participate.

The race is as follows:

Sprint Distance: 500 meter swim • 16-mile bike • 5 kilometer run

Olympic Distance: 1.5 kilometer swim • 40 kilometer bike • 10 kilometer run
