The town of Haverstraw Police Benevolent Association is hosting an event titled The Bricktown Challenge, a sprint distance triathlon, starting at 8 a.m. Sept. 28.
The race includes a ¼ mile swim from the boat launch at the Rockland County Park followed by a 13 mile bike through parts of the village of West Haverstraw, Garnerville, Thiells and Stony Point.
After the bike ride, the contestants will run 3 miles along the Hudson River.
Contestants can also choose duathlon with a one mile run instead of the ¼ mile swim followed by the 13 mile bike ride and 3 mile run.
The event is USATriathlon-sanctioned.
A portion of the proceeds will be used to support local charities in the Haverstraw area. Visit www.nytri.org to register for the event.
