The Dewey Beach Sprint Triathlon will begin at 8 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 18, from Delaware Seashore State Park’s Tower Road ocean beach. The event includes a 1/2-mile swim, 3.45-mile run and 16-mile bike. The race is sold out at 500 participants.
Some traffic congestion can be expected from 7:30 until 11 a.m., so participants, and area residents and visitors should plan accordingly. Spectators can watch along the beach at the state park for the swim, along the streets of Dewey Beach for the run, or at the transition area in Delaware Seashore State Park.
Among the benefactors this year will be Pathways to Success and Cape’s JROTC program. Event organizer Ava Cannon said, “We felt that the mission of Pathways to Success, which is to prepare youth, adults and their families for successful lives, integrated wonderfully with the mission of Cape’s JROTC program.”
Spectators are encouraged to walk to the park as parking is very limited. Volunteers are always appreciated. Contact email@example.com if interested.
