Nation's Triathlon Shutting Down District Streets

On Sunday, thousands of athletes will take to D.C.'s streets to compete in the Nation's Triathlon.

Technically, it's not a triathlon anymore - organizers canceled the swim portion after the week's tropical weather made swimming conditions dangerous.

But the remaining bike and run segments will still go on, which will force road closures around the capital.

Those street closings start Saturday evening, when Ohio Drive from Inlet Bridge to Independence Avenue will be shut down until 8 p.m. Sunday.

The rest of the road closures will start Sunday morning at 6 a.m.  Roadways at the top of the list will begin to open back up at 11:30 p.m. after racers clear.  By 2:00 p.m. Sunday, all participants must be off the course, and all of these roads will reopen.
