Heatwave Classic Coming Up


On Saturday, June 2nd, BlueCross BlueShield of Mississippi and Ridgeland Recreation & Parks will host the 27th annual Heatwave Classic Triathlon. Some of the finest athletes from the Southeastern United States will converge on Ridgeland, Mississippi to compete in the triathlon, an event sanctioned by the U.S.A. Triathlon. Participants return each year because they love the race course.

This year's race will consist of a ½ mile swim in the Ross Barnett Reservoir, a 24 ½ mile bike ride along the scenic and historic Natchez Trace Parkway, and ending with a 10K run along Ridgeland's heavily shaded Multi-Purpose Trail. Participants may register online at www.heatwavetri.racesonline.com.

The Heatwave Classic Triathlon is one of many events sponsored by City of Ridgeland Recreation & Parks Department. For more information on this event please call 601-853-2011.
