The country’s top athletes try to break the 11-year-old Cleveland Triathlon record this morning. They start with a plunge into Lake Erie. After the 1.5-mile swim, they’ll bike a 24-mile loop course on the Shoreway near Burke Lakefront Airport. It all culminates in a 10K run through downtown Cleveland to the finish line at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Everyone’s chasing a 1996 record of 1 hour and 39 minutes. At noon, trophies and state-of-the-art pedometers will be awarded to the fastest male and female competitors. Runners-up score commemorative plaques.
Sun., Aug. 5, 6:45 a.m.
