The fifth annual Kids Triathlon for Bob Kelleher drew hundreds of youngsters to the Navesink River in Rumson for swim-bike-run competitions for kids aged 14 and under Sunday. The event is a benefit for the borough First Aid Squad, and is run in memory of late squad member and triathlete Bob Kelleher. (Photos by Trish Russoniello. Mouseover to pause.)
Forget about sleeping in on Sunday, dads: Victory Park is the setting for a great recreational event this Father’s Day, with a Kids’ Triathlon that commences at 7:45 am.
Hot on the heels of the recent Nav-E-Sink or Swim 2014 — and the annual running of the Red Bank Triathlon in May — Rumson’s Victory Park will be the scene for a benefit recreational event designed to “wet” the curiosity of anyone on the lookout for a different sort of family-friendly activity this Father’s Day, June 15. The action starts early at 7:45 am, as the fifth annual Kids Triathlon for Bob Kelleher takes to the waters of the river Navesink for a slate of swim/ bike/ run events designed for young competitors in two age groups (8 and under, 9 to 14). Organized by Doug Rice’s Split Second Racing as a benefit for the Rumson First Aid Squad, the course offers medals to all finishers, and special guest announcer Patrick Kelleher, son of the late Tri-Athlete and borough First Aid captain for whom the race is named.
