Just under 600 athletes entered the race, and 394 completed it, said Corey Roberts, the athlete experience guide for EventPower Long Island, the organizer.

“Phenomenal,” he said of this year’s swim-run-bike event.

“Every year is a phenomenal year. We have a beautiful place to hold the event. I mean, it’s stunning.”
