On May 1 & 2, 2021, athletes will converge on Sebring for Florida’s Premier Multisport experience, the Sebring Multisport Festival! Proudly brought to you by Integrity Multisport™. When you race, be sure that you “Race with Integrity™”.
Athletes will enjoy a fresh water swim in full view of spectators. The bike course loops around a 3000 acre lake and goes on to rural roads with little traffic. The run also loops around the lake and then runs through the quaint city of Sebring. Spectators will have plenty of opportunity to cheer on athletes as they run down the final finishing chute.
Friends, family & music will be at the finish line of the festival. The city of Sebring and Highlands County have gone over and above to make this a special event for years to come. Don’t miss your opportunity to get in on year 1 of this great event!
If you haven’t visited Sebring, Florida, you are missing out. While it is most famous for the 12 hours of Sebring car race, it is a wonderful little town nessled right in the middle of the state and just a short drive from Florida’s major cities. There’s a state park with camping, fishing, geocaching and the like, plenty of hotel space, great roads for bike riding (with much less traffic than in SE Florida, Tampa, or Orlando). Oh, and Highlands County has an extremely low covid case count. Not a bad place to be!
I have been blown away by the great reception of all of the people in Sebring and Highlands County who have gone above and beyond to help get this event going. It all started with Dan Andrews, the Heartland Triathlon Race Director and owner of Legacy Bicycles in Sebring, pointing me in the right direction to get everything we need to make the event happen and even designing a 56 mile bike course for me! Wow! Casey Hartt of VisitSebring.com and Chantel Brutus helped guide me through the process of working with the Tourist Development Council.
To the event itself! Saturday will host an Olympic Distance Triathlon & Aquabike as well as an Aquathlon. Sunday will host a Half Iron Triathlon, Duathlon, and Aquabike. We will be applying to be a World Championship Qualifier and give out the World Championship slots that should’ve been given out in Miami in November.
The town is great, the facilities are great, the residents are great, and the course is awesome. It is going to be a whole weekend of fun that you definitely do not want to miss! We can’t wait!
