WESTBROOK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Now, if you've been keeping track of the news, you know that there could be a very large snake in the same area that athletes will be active this weekend.
Yet, race organizers aren't going to let "Wessie" interrupt the proceedings much either.
They're making no changes to the race course -- just telling racers to keep an eye out for the possible local anaconda.
Major League Triathlon is actually working the snake into its marketing for the race as well.
We'll have safety boats out there, volunteers and with that many people out there if it's a real thing it will probably be a juvenile snake so my guess it would be more scared of the swimmers than they would of the snake," said Major League Triathlon CEO Dan Cassidy.
