Breezy Point Triathlon canceled because of security

NORFOLK, VA — . A planned triathlon at Norfolk Naval Station is off because of new security requirements.

Those new security measures were put in place after a March shooting in which a civilian killed a sailor on the base.

The Virginian-Pilot says the new security protocols have forced the cancellation of the June 1 Breezy Point Triathlon.

Triathlon director Brian Sagedy said the volunteer-run race doesn't have the manpower to gather the information for the checks in time. He said entry fees will be refunded to the roughly 450 athletes who registered.
