ST. CROIX - The National Park Service is putting new security measures in place for Sunday's 25th Annual Ironman 70.3 St. Croix Triathlon, citing the Boston Marathon bombings last month that killed three and injured more than 260.

"Anybody that's entering the boundaries of the Christiansted National Historic Site will be screened," said Lorena Harris, chief ranger for the National Park Service sites on St. Croix.
