Description

Since 1989, the City of Brigantine has been involved in the Brigantine Island Triathlon. Every years since its inception, the race has benefited various entities on Brigantine Island including the Marine Mammal Stranding Center, the American Red Cross, the Brigantine Board of Education and now Brigantine Community Education and Recreation Department (CER). The CER will again host the triathlon this year on Saturday, August 4th, 2018. Local Police, Fire, EMS. Dept. of Public Works, the Beach Patrol, Emergency Management, the NJ State Police, US Coast Guard, the City Manager and City Council and Mayor of Brigantine are all intimately involved in making this race a success, year after year.

The CER is a City based organization who is trying to raise money for recreation programs for the children of all ages, as well as the community of Brigantine.  Find more out about the Brigantine CER Office by following this link:  http://brigantinechamber.com/brigantine-community-education-recreation/

The several hundred athletes of all different abilities, will participate in Saturday’s event which kicks off with a ¼ mile swim in the bay, beginning on 26th Street dock area. The race is then followed by a scenic bike ride around the Island of Brigantine. The athletes return to 26th Street dock area where they will drop their bikes and don on their running shoes for a 4 mile run to the North end of Brigantine and back.

The athletes will then have time to relax at a Picnic catered by Nobil Food Services. This after race party occurs at the 26th Street Ballfields. The award ceremony will take place at the same location as soon as the last finisher crosses the finish line. Many local sponsors support the race because of the large fluctuation of athletes in town. Without their support, the race could not be as successful as it has been. The winners of the event will cross the finish line in 50 minutes, while others may take 2 hours to complete this event.

For this years event, we will again host the 1/4 swim, 11 bike and 4 mile run.  We have also added an event for Duathletes starting with a 1 mile run while their counterparts swim.  The Duathletes will follow the same bike and run course.  The third individual event gives the option of the athlete swimming  the 1/4 with the Triathletes, and finishing their race with the 11 mile bike.  

As always, we are looking for volunteers to assist in the success of the race. If you have an interest in helping out and earning a free T-Shirt, this year or next, please contact Jim Mogan (609-264-7350) by July 28th.
