BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE BEACH, FLORIDA – Brevard County sheriff candidate Todd Maddox and his two teammates (TEAM MADDOX) took second place overall in the men’s relay during the Pineapple Man 27th annual Triathlon last weekend in Melbourne Beach.

More than 600 people participated in the event, which is hosted annually by the Melbourne Beach Rotary Club.

It’s the oldest, continuously held sprint triathlon in Florida and includes a .34 mile swim, 3.4 mile run and a 15 mile bike ride.

The overall winner of the triathlon was Ed Donner.

“As a 10-year veteran of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team, I believe it is very important to maintain your physical fitness,” Maddox said. “Law enforcement is a stressful and physically demanding career field, and running has always been an essential part of my routine. I also try to lead by example and encourage others to take care of their health.”

Maddox currently holds the rank of lieutenant with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, where he has served for 22 years. Maddox has been in law enforcement for more than 25 years and is extremely involved in the community.

During his career, he has received numerous bars of merit and letters of appreciation.

The primary for the Brevard County Sheriff election will be held Aug. 14 and the general election is set for Nov. 6.
