Do you enjoy competing in natural areas? If so, you'll love
the Mighty Mississinewa Triathlon. Follow the same paths historically walked by
the Miami Indians. Swim the lake, ride county roads, and run groomed trails through
beautiful scenery. Proceeds from this event will be invested in a fund managed
by Indiana Heritage Trust to purchase
ground around Mississinewa Lake, Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
