People from across the state raced to the finish line for the first ever Missouri Breaks Triathlon in Fort Benton and Loma on Saturday.

The Friends of the Missouri Breaks Monument and the Bureau of Land Management teamed up to create the event in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act.

The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act was created to preserve certain rivers with outstanding natural, cultural, and recreational values in a free-flowing condition for the enjoyment of present and future generations, according to the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System.
