The 28th Annual Destin Triathlon (formerly the Elephant Walk Triathlon) will lure 700 participants for a half-mile Gulf of Mexico swim, a 20-mile bike along the coast, and a 4-mile run through Sandestin’s beach and bayside community. Proceeds benefit Sacred Heart Hospital of the Emerald Coast. www.SandestinTriathlon.com.
A portion of the Sandestin Triathlon proceeds will benefit Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. Last year for the 2013 Sandestin Triathlon, $20,000 was raised for Sacred Heart.
