Triathlon filling fast

• The Door County Triathlon is filling fast, with the Half Iron distance more than 80 percent full, and the sprint over 50 percent full. Race Director Sean Ryan is urging Door County residents to sign up soon.

“Once we are full, the only way to ‘squeeze someone in’ is to ‘squeeze someone else out’,” he said. “In other words, it’s not possible.”
