The Biathlon consists of two events. The first event is a 3 mile run that occurs within Alley Pond Park. The second part occurs upon conclusion of the run when participants with their bicycles proceed to race on an eighteen mile course on the n/b Cross Island Parkway. (Note the 18 mile course is actually two and a half loops on a five mile section of the n/b CIP.)  The n/b CIP will be closed from approximately 0700 to 1100 hours, from exit 29 (East/West bound Grand Central Parkway) to exit 32 (Bell Boulevard).  All n/b traffic on the CIP would be detoured to either the East-bound or West-bound GCP. In addition the w/b traffic on the Long Island Expressway would not be permitted to exit to the n/b CIP. Upon conclusion of this event the n/b CIP would be reopened no later than 1100.
