Check out the 2015 DRONE Video !!

Gallagher Beach ~ Buffalo


Water entry is still permitted!  The State wants to just keep it a pier for walking and sight seeing.  History has shown that the water is only non swimmable 18% of the time, but they just don't want to have to monitor it. All events that use the water are still occurring as they wish.  As with all our triathlons, water quality is tested 1-2 days before.  We have yet to change anything in the last 5 years at the same beach.  And if you enjoyed it in the past, we hope you will join us again this year! Hope this helps. The race is still going on!!
