Swimmers And Runners And Cyclists--Oh My!

Swimmers, runners, and cyclists looking for the chance to test their body's limits soon will have the chance to do just that.

The 9th annual Broome County Parks Triathlon is set to take place on June 28th at Dorchester Park in Whitney Point. Youth triathlon coordinator Bob Beavan says a race like this tests skills that athletes learn throughout their lifetimes.


"If you think about it, our first types of exercise when we were kids are swimming, biking, and running. you know, you take your bike, go down to the park, swim with your pals, and run around. So for a lot of us, for the age group athletes like myself, its kind of like a return to our youth, if you will," said Bob Beavan, youth county triathlon coordinator.

The registration deadline for the triathlon is June 15. For more information or to register, visit gobroomecounty.com
