Town of Hempstead announces date for 29th triathlon

Hempstead Town is accepting entries for the 2013 Triathlon, entering its 29th season.

The town’s late-summer triathlon features swimming, biking and running and has emerged as one of Long Island’s signature athletic events. The competition is set for Saturday, Sept. 7, at 8 a.m. in Town Park Point Lookout.

The triathlon begins with a three-quarter-mile ocean swim. After emerging from the surf, competitors set off on a 10-mile bike ride through the streets of Point Lookout and Lido Beach. The final leg of the triathlon is a 5-mile run to the finish line at Town Park.
