Freedom Springs Triathlon

Jackson County Commissioners on Tuesday agreed to provide advanced life support ambulance back-up for the July 4 Freedom Springs Triathon based at Blue Springs Recreational Area. The county will be paid $100 an hour for that service.

The event is set for 7-9 a.m. It includes a 10-mile bike race, a quarter-mile swim and a 5K run along Poplar Springs Road.

It is expected to include roughly 300 participants who will bike, swim and run for various triathlon titles. Some will participate as members of a relay team, splitting the events, others as individuals completing all three, with prizes awarded in various categories.
