Covered bridge is back for Sundayís Triathlon

The bridge. Ah, the bridge. Finally, itís back. After a three-year hiatus, the covered Pumping Station bridge on Eunice Williams Drive makes its long-awaited return to the Greenfield Lightlife Triathlon during the 32nd running of the annual race Sunday morning at the Green River Swimming and Recreation Area in Greenfield. The most famous and picturesque part of the course has always been that covered bridge, but the floods from Hurricane Irene in 2011 destroyed it and caused race officials to create an alternate route for the past three years. The bridge reopened this past fall, so now the triathlon can return to its original route, much to the delight of organizers and participants. ďIím extremely excited, itís nice to have our traditional course back,Ē Greenfield Recreation Director Christy Moore said. ďI think the athletes are excited, too. They missed it. Itís just so quintessential New England to have a covered bridge on the route. I donít know of any other triathlon that has a covered bridge on the route.Ē . . .
