MONTGOMERY CO., AL (WSFA) -

The City of Montgomery hosted athletes from all over the southeast on Saturday for the second annual Capital of Dreams triathlon.

About 300 triathletes descended on Montgomery's riverfront to swim, bike and run.

Swimmers rode out on the Harriott II Riverboat, jumped off the boat, and swam either the sprint distance of 400 meters or intermediate distance of 1,500 meters.

Teams then transitioned under the Union Station Train Shed downtown, and biked either 20K or 40K on Maxwell Boulevard.

The race ended with either a 5K or 10K run, depending on the runners preference, in downtown Montgomery.

The event kicked off with a kids duathlon Friday night. Children from ages 2 to 12 biked and ran varying distances depending on their age.
