300 athletes participated in the third-annual Rochester Triathlon Saturday morning.
The Rochester Area Triathletes hosted the event which attracted racers from as far as Colorado and Florida to bike, swim and run.
Participants gathered at Durand Beach early in the morning to ride on new and improved bike courses for both the sprint and Olympic distances.
Event organizers say the triathlon draws more and more people each year.
"Triathlon is a very fast growing sport. A lot of people are learning that it's a great healthy way to stay active. They don't have to do just one thing, they can do swimming biking or running. So, it's like cross-training and it helps you stay fit if you get one injury that would prevent you from doing just one activity," said race director, Rob Smura.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Anna's Wish, a non-profit charity that assists families dealing with pediatric cancer.
