WILLIAMSBURG- For the first time ever, the city of Williamsburg hosted a triathlon Sunday.
It’s called “Revolution3,” a group that stages triathlons all over the country.
Nearly 1,500 athletes swam a mile in the James River, biked 52 miles around the city, and then ran a half marathon. The race ended at the College of William and Mary.
Firemen kept a watchful eye over the athletes. At one point, a runner went down, needing medical care. Riverside Medical teams also volunteered their expertise.
Revolution3” signifies a return to the birth of triathlon, back to what was envisioned at mission bay, California in the mid 70’s. It was a time when it was about celebrating being active with family and friends.
