ROXBURY, NJ - Despite being postponed due to weather, this year's Kids TriHarder Triathlon at Horseshoe Lake Park was a success as kids four years old to 14 rode bicycles, swam in the lake and ran their hearts out, said organizers.

The July 20 event, sponsored by the Roxbury Recreation Department and Marty’s Reliable Cycles, was originally scheduled for July 13 but was pushed to the new date due to predictions of thunderstorms. 

"We had over 130 girls and boys ... participate," said Sandi DiDomenico, a program director at the recreation deaprtment. "Depending on the age group, each child swam between 25 meters and 100 meters, biked between .5 and two miles and ran between .25 and 1.5 miles."

The event, Roxbury's fourth, is competitive but friendly. Every child received a medal from Roxbury Councilman Fred Hall and a Cliff’s Ice Cream certificate for a ‘Skyscraper’ from Roxbury Mayor Mark Crowley.

"Hillside Church and the First Presbyterian Church of Succasunna provided volunteers, along with Roxbury Recreation’s lifeguards," DiDomenico said. "Balloons were donated from the Dollar Deal in Ledgewood. The event received significant positive feedback from the community, and is planned again for next summer."
