A triathlon on Martha’s Vineyard wouldn’t be complete without ocean views. Consider swimming 1.2 miles, biking 56 miles, running 13.1 miles, or make it a team effort in a relay format — it’s your choice. Whatever you decide benefits the YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard. You can take part in just a portion of the event and let friends do the rest, or you can test your strength and perseverance by doing it all.

The triathlon is open to 300 participants and is sponsored by Goodale Construction. It gets underway at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 7, at Waban Park in Oak Bluffs.
