You’ll come for the fast-paced Heartland Triathlon, but you could end up staying for the slower-paced quality of life that is Sebring and surrounding areas.
The heart of Heartland Triathlon weekend is City Pier at 315 W. Center St. in Sebring. Nestled among Altvater Cultural Complex, Highlands Little Theatre, Sebring Public Library, Sebring Historical Society and Sebring Civic Center, the transition area parallels Lakeview Drive and is accompanied by an expo representing multi-sport interests.
On the bike, our triathletes get a taste of our rural lifestyle as their ride takes them from Sebring’s center and circumnavigates Lake Jackson clockwise bringing them to U.S. 27 then back onto Lakeview Drive then further north through the citrus groves that breathed life into Highlands County. A brief ride up “killer hill” as our amateurs affectionately dubbed it in 2006 and the cyclists return south toward Lake Jackson for the fast ride to T2.
With helmets off and visors/hats on, the running leg provides the final kick through Sebring’s historic and beautiful downtown include the famous Circle Park that is the epicenter of Sebring. Runners coming down Center Street into the finish line chute are greeted with cheering crowds and one of the best emcees in the business to call out their bib number, or even their name.
