Patriot Half Triathlon this Saturday in Williamsburg

The last of the summer’s three triathlons visits greater Williamsburg this weekend. If it finishes on time, it will avoid a potential conflict with one of the area’s most popular events – the annual Kiwanis Shrimp Feast.

Saturday’s Patriot Half Triathlon includes a 1.2-mile swim, a 13.1-mile run and, most important to locals, a 58-mile bike ride. A smaller event on Sunday features a 750-meter swim, 20K bike ride and a 3.1-mile run.

Like earlier races this year, the bike course will impact a few roads in James City County, with most of the biking portion held in Charles City County. Specifically, Greensprings Road and Route 5 between Centerville Road and the Judith Dresser Bridge will experience congestion as cyclists head out and return. Likely times for congestion are between 7 a.m. and noon.
