The Westchester Triathlon is set for Sunday, spurring racers — and road closures — throughout Rye.
Running from 7 a.m. to about noon, the swim, bike and running race starts and ends at Rye Town Park on the Long Island Sound.
Rye Police issued a traffic alert, saying that although the course of the bicycle and running events will remain open to traffic, some temporary detours and intermittent street closings may be necessary, particularly in the vicinity of Forest Avenue, Grace Church Street, Highland Road, Purchase Street, Theodore Fremd Avenue, Playland Parkway, and Milton Point. Residents should allow extra travel time and use caution for runners and bikers in the roadway, police said.
In addition, spectators at the event are reminded that the seasonal prohibition on parking in the vicinity of Playland and Rye Town Park remains in effect; parking violations will be enforced.
All net proceeds from the triathlon are donated to local charities including the Rye YMCA, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, MAC Angels for ALS, Challenged Athletes Foundation and Wounded Warrior Project.
