On Sunday, June 14, more than 800 athletes will participate in the Challenge Williamsburg Triathlon, formerly known as the REV3 Triathlon. Portions of roads throughout James City County will be temporarily closed to accommodate the cycling and running portions of the event.

Motorists should expect delays between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. on all of Centerville Road and on the following:

• Greensprings Road
• John Tyler Highway
• Jolly Pond Road
• Opportunity Way
• Little Creek Dam Road
• Forge Road
• Diascund Road
• Richmond Road (in Toano and Lanexa)

Cranston’s Mill Pond Road will be closed, except to its residents, for the duration of the event. This route is the same route as the 2014 REV3 route.

Police will direct traffic during the race to help keep participants and motorists moving as efficiently as possible. Motorists should also note that there will be bicyclists traveling on these roadways throughout the day even while traffic is flowing and should use extreme caution.

Challenge Williamsburg is part of Challenge Family, the fastest growing global long distance triathlon series, now with 44 full and half distance triathlons in 21 countries. Featuring spectacular courses in iconic destinations, Challenge Family events focus on delivering the race of a lifetime to athletes of all ages and abilities.
