TRI DRAWS 400 COMPETITORS

Nearly 400 athletes gathered in Marine Park bright and early Sunday for the Red Bank Triathlon, a swim-bike-run competition of Olympic and sprint distances that took them down a coned-off West Front Street, up Riverside Avenue and into Middletown and Holmdel.

Jonathan Winter of Highland Park took first place overall, finishing the Olympic race – a 1.5k swim in the Navesink River, a 40k bike ride and a 10k run – in 2 hours, 2 minutes and 13 seconds. Full results are here.

A QUICK DIP, OR TWO

The bike and run portions were canceled because of a road washout in Tropical Storm Irene, but that didn’t keep several dozen registrants for the Red Bank Triathlon from the  swim leg of the race on Saturday.

Some competitors did one 1.2-mile loop, while others, hungering for more of a challenge, dove back in for a second go-round in our beautiful Navesink River.
