- 6th Annual Denville Triathlon:
For anyone who has not done our event, this is a great tri for first-timers. The “V” shaped swim is .35 miles in Cooks Pond, a very pretty and clean local lake. The bike leg is a 9 mile flat route (double loop) through the downtown area (roads are closed). And then there’s the run — it’s a 5K and it does start with a killer hill, but we have lots of fans to cheer you on and the course goes through a lovely local neighborhood.
This will be an individual and relay event. Proceeds from this event benefit local charities, including the Joey Bella Memorial Fund.
