Racers can participate in a triathlon, a half-mile swim in Lake Blackshear, a 13.6-mile bike race and a 3.1-mile run, or a duathlon, which drops the half-mile swim.
Established as a memorial to U.S. veterans, this park features a museum with aircraft (including a Boeing B-29A), armored vehicles, uniforms, weapons, medals and other items from the Revolutionary War through the Gulf War. An 18-hole golf course and pro shop are situated along with 8,700-acre Lake Blackshear.
A sandy swimming beach is the perfect place to cool off during Georgia summers. The Lake Blackshear Resort and Golf Club is a privately operated conference center with 78 lodge rooms, 10 cottages and restaurants. The SAM Shortline Excursion Train runs through the park on its way from Cordele to Plains, allowing riders to see an antique telephone museum, Habitat for Humanity's Global Village, President Jimmy Carter's boyhood farm and other attractions along the journey.
