Description

The 32nd Annual Dragon Fly Sprint Triathlon consist of 1/2 mile Swim, 18 mile Bike, and a 4 mile Run.  The Dragon Fly is located at Cyprus Point on the Lower Lake at Sardis Lake Reservoir.  The swim is always cool, refreshing and you will have a sandy beach entrance and exit. Every 4 years the Corp of Engineers do work to the Lower Lake Sardis flood gates/spillway for the upper lake.  The Corp of Engineers have the water level down on the lower lake to do the work. It will not affect the triathlon except the beach exit may be a little longer. The bike course goes through farm land and is flat except for one hill.  The run is on pavement for 2 miles and on trail for 2 miles.  This will make a great late summer triathlon for your 2022 season.

For the first time $150 cash awards will be presented to the fastest cyclist in each competition: men, women, relay male, relay female.

Lovely Custom Pottery Awards to overall Female and Male, Age Groups. Awards by Mississippi Artist Susan Donald, who took on the role as director of the Children of God Pottery Studio in 2012. The studio is a ministry of French Camp Academy which gives students an opportunity to express themselves creatively through clay. 

While having the doors open for her at the pottery studio was a dream come true, Susan started her journey from scratch, having never worked with clay before. Now, ten years later the studio offers not only slab and wheel thrown pottery but also horsehair pottery as well as some raku pieces. Susan also harvests and uses local wild clay from the French Camp area. Those interested in learning more may visit
