Swimmers, bicyclists and runners took to the scenic area of Megunticook Lake Sept. 4 for the 31st annual Maine Sport Triathlon.

Barrett’s Cove, the beach at the lake, bustled with activity the morning of the popular triathlon. The sun peeked through the clouds occasionally, and the air was a bit muggy.

Teams talked strategy, and individual participants readied their transition area for the easiest and fastest transit between the swimming, cycling and running events. Families and friends stood nearby in support with cameras ready to capture the day.

The course was a half-mile swim in the lake, followed by a 26-mile cycle around the lake area, and finished with a 6.4-mile run. Participants had the option to compete solo or as a member of a team.

There were 75 individuals and 19 teams, for a total of 128 overall participants.

Locals or natives ruled much of the triathlon, including the top part.

Scott Layton, 35, of Rockport was the first male finisher, completing the course in two hours, one minute and five seconds. Matt Boobar, 39, of Stratton Mountain, Vt., who grew up locally, finished second in 2:03:20.

Andrea Wilhelm, 31, of Lincolnville was the first female finisher. Wilhelm completed the course in 2:08:45.

The first team to complete the event was Peter Mackintosh, Jim Monty, and Samantha Matoush. The trio finished the course in 2:02:53.

Parker Johnson, 51, of Lincolnville maintained his amazing streak by competing in his 31st straight Maine Sport Triathlon.
