Potsdam resident Jim Wilkes took on a USA Ultra Triathlons 703 mile Continuous Quintuple Anvil Triathlon at Lake Anna State Park in Virginia earlier this month. The event consisted of a 12-mile swim, a 560-mile bike, and 131-mile run. ‘Once the clock starts athletes have 132 hours to complete the race,’ Wilkes said.
