NORWALK - Nearly 600 athletes competed in Norwalk's 11th annual Mossman Triathlon at Calf Pasture Beach this morning.

The race included a half-mile swim in the Long Island Sound, a 12.5-mile bike ride on a two-loop course and a 3.1-mile run through Calf Pasture Beach and into the local marina.

Tyler Curran, 16, of the Bronx, won the race, finishing in just under an hour with the time of 58:26.

Organizers say the competition is full each year because athletes love the challenge.
