The 36th annual St. Anthony’s Triathlon is this Sunday, April 28th and race officials want to remind residents that some streets will experience road closures and travel delays. The Olympic and Sprint distance races will follow the same routes as last year, and delays can be expected from approximately 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Most roads will be open, but traffic will be stopped at various times on several streets to accommodate the safety of both the athletes who will participate in the race and spectators who will watch from the sidelines. Local residents are encouraged to find alternate routes during race time.
