WESTPORT, Conn. Fairfield County triathletes get one of their final chances to dip their toes in the waters of Long Island Sound Sunday in Westport, capping a summer in which three county triathlons were canceled,
The Westport Kiwanis Club triathlon begins at 7:30 a.m. at Compo Beach. It includes a half-mile swim, a 5.5-mile bike ride and a 2.2-mile run. One of the shortest triathlons in the area, it had 207 finishers last year.
Two late-season county triathlons from last year will not be held this year. The ITPMan Triathlon in Darien is taking a one-year hiatus from its usual September date due to construction at Weed Beach. A September triathlon in Fairfield was canceled, though race organizers hope to revive it next year. Hurricane Irene washed out a triathlon for women last month in Norwalk.
