Hundreds of young athletes pushed themselves well past their limits in the challenging BNB Hamptons Youth Triathlon in Sag Harbor on Saturday, July 14. The participants separated into their specific age groups and started the race by swimming the length of Long Beach. Then they switched to a short bike race, and eventually finished the triathlon on foot, racing to the opposite end of Long Beach, returning to the start for the final lap. The first group leaped into the water at 7:30 AM, and runners were still crossing the finish line past 9 AM. For this taxing a race, everyone should be very proud of their times.
