Weekend road closures for St. Anthony's Triathlon

ST. PETERSBURG — Thousands of triathletes are expected to take over downtown this weekend for the 29th annual St. Anthony's Triathlon.

That means potential road closures.

Several downtown roads for both Sunday's triathlon and today's smaller race, the Meek and Mighty Triathlon, will be subject to closures throughout the events.

The St. Anthony's Triathlon, which lasts from 6:50 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, will see 3,500 competitors.

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.

The Meek and Mighty Triathlon runs from 7:30 until 11 a.m. today and will have about 1,000 competitors.

The route today follows North Shore Drive north to Coffee Pot Boulevard. It makes a U-turn at 19th Avenue NE, then comes back south on North Shore Drive to Seventh Avenue NE, then south on Bayshore Drive around the Mahaffey Theater. There, it makes another U-turn at Fifth Avenue SE and First Street and returns north on Bayshore Drive to the North Shore Pool area.
