Motorists are advised to practice increased vigilence as delays are expected Saturday across Brigantine for the city’s 26th annual triathlon.

Runners and bicyclists will be criss-crossing the resort between about 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. The event includes a quarter-mile swim, 11-mile bike ride and culminates in a 4-mile run.

Brigantine police say Bayshore Avenue and Revere Boulevard will be closed between 22nd and 28th streets south. Delays will be widespread, particularly between 24th and 31st streets south and along Brigantine Avenue.

Police officers and volunteers will be posted at various locations along the triathlon route to ensure the safety of participants. Bicyclists and runners will be given right of way in those areas.

Awards will be given for the winners in five-year incremental age groups. A cookout will follow the race at the ball fields at 26th Street South and Brigantine Avenue.

For more information, call the Brigantine Community Center at 609-264-7350.
