2010 Heartland Triathlon
Fatherís Day weekend began with a fantastic turnout for the Saturday morning TriKidz event. Over 80 children ages 5-14 received winner medals and awards by Olympian and Ironman World Champion Michellie Jones. After the race, Michellie hosted a clinic at the beach for both parents and kids. At noon, Michellie hosted the All-American luncheon sponsored by Woody’s BBQ for two dozen athletes and their guests. Our All-American guests were treated to some quality time with one of the all-time greats in our sport.
Our Saturday evening Pasta Bash, sponsored by The Olive Garden and The Depot, garnered over 425 attendees. The dinner was followed by a fantastic Olympic video and inspiring conversation with Michellie Jones. We are thankful and blessed Michellie chose to attend our event!
On Father’s Day Sunday, we were treated to an exceptional morning of racing. Over 50 First-Timers successfully completed their inaugural triathlon. Goodie bags included race towels, visors, and Dri-fit shirts. More adults finished the event than ever before. The post race BBQ was incredible and enjoyed by both athletes and their families. And to cap off the morning, Michellie Jones presented awards to all award winners. Many photos were taken to memorialize the event.
