  • Triathlon
        The Montauk Triathlon (1-mile swim in Lake Montauk, 20-mile bike, and 10K run) based at the West Lake Drive-Star Island Causeway intersection, will be held Saturday, beginning with the swim at 7:30 a.m.

        Merle McDonald-Aaron, the race director, said 520 have signed up this year, about 100 fewer than in 2013. “The reason,” she thinks, “is that there’s to be a national Olympic-distance triathlon a week later.”
