To do Sunday: run, swim, bike

Race The 12th annual Love City Triathalon will step off Sunday, delayed a few weeks by the Hurricane Earl which brushed the island earlier this month.

The swim, bike, and run competition begins at 7 a.m. and is open to both individuals and two- or three-person relay teams.  The morning races start with a half-mile swim at Maho Bay, followed by a 14-mile bike route and then a four-mile run beginning with a trek up the stairs at the Anneberg ruins.

The race is sponsored by the Love City Landsharks.  Last year's competition drew 63 athletes.

Road race a casualty of Earl

RectangSticker-385sq The Love City Triathalon and Aquathon, scheduled for Sunday, has been postponed.

"While conditions on the island of St. John are improving after the passing of Hurricane Earl, the road and water upon which the races are conducted are still being cleaned, cleared and repaired," the St. John Landsharks announced.

Organizers said the storm and its cleanup have taxed both physical resources as well as volunteers' time and energy.

"The race organizing committee is concerned with the safety and enjoyment of the participants, along with not overburdening the many race volunteers during this challenging time," the Landsharks said.
