More than 200 people biked, swam and ran their way through the sizzling summer heat Sunday to raise money and awareness for cancer in women.
The Markey Race for Women's Cancer began at 7 a.m. at Spindletop. Proceeds support the Markey Cancer Center Gynecologic Patient Advocacy Fund. The triathlon was a 400-meter swim, 14-mile bike ride and 3.1-mile run. Some also ran a shorter duathlon course or participated in a 5K run/walk.
