For 27 years, the Westchester Triathlon has been held in our area and the newest installment is coming at the end of September so there is still time to get ready. From novice to professional, young and old, the 1,000 athletes gather together in Rye and begin with a swim of 9/10ths of a mile in the Long Island Sound. Following this, entrants will hop on their bikes and take part in the 25 mile scenic bike course. The course takes you through the residential neighborhoods of Rye, Port Chester, Harrison and Greenwich, CT where they ride past some horse farms. Finally, athletes then embark on their last leg of the race, a 6.2 mile run through the shady and picturesque streets of Rye. For more information, go to Westchester Triathlon.
