RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT) - Iron men and women came out to show their true grit Saturday, for the Heat Wave Classic Triathlon.
We caught up with some of the competitors during the final leg of the event, the 10K run along Ridgeland's multi-use trail. Beforehand, they completed a half-mile swim in the Ross Barnett Reservoir and a 24.5 mile bike ride.
Participants typically come from Mississippi and other Southeastern states.
