Road closures planned during St. Anthony's Triathlon events this weekend

The St. Anthony's Triathlon takes over the downtown St. Petersburg waterfront this weekend. And, of course, that means road closures. Several roads downtown will be subject to intermittent closures and delays during the triathlon, from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sunday. A smaller area has the Meek and Mighty on Saturday.

Roads that will be affected Sunday include: First Avenue S, between 28th Street and First Street; Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street, between 18th Avenue S and Pinellas Point Drive; First, Second, Third, Fourth and Sixth streets, between First Avenue S and Pinellas Point Drive; Bayshore Drive will be closed between Fifth Avenue N and Fifth Avenue S; North Shore Drive NE and Coffee Pot Boulevard will be closed between Fifth Avenue N and 22nd Avenue N; the Snell Isle Bridge and some Snell Isle neighborhood streets will also be affected.

Most roads will be open, but traffic will be delayed intermittently and residents are advised to expect delays.

Volunteers needed

St. Anthony's Triathlon is recruiting volunteers to assist competitors as they swim, bike and run Friday through Sunday. Volunteers can assist in positions such as athlete check-in, body marking, water stations, course marshals and finish line. Volunteers will receive a commemorative race T-shirt and access to the volunteer hospitality tent.

To volunteer, visit and click on the "Volunteer" tab, or call (727) 953-9005. Volunteers can indicate time availability and preferred assignments. Schedules, directions and parking instructions will be distributed before the event.
