The Columbia Threadneedle Investments Boston Triathlon will return to the city this summer. The two-day event will once again be staged at Carson Beach, but this year it will be held a month later than usual, on the weekend of Aug. 28-29.
The competition is usually held in July, but organizers and state officials have agreed to push it later into the summer to “allow more time for race participants, volunteers, vendors, organizers, and the community to receive vaccinations as well as to follow all city and state guidelines,” according to the event’s founder and president, Michael O’Neil. The event was cancelled last year.
“Over the past few months, we have been working directly with the Lt. Governor Karyn Polito and her team to help craft a ‘Safe Return to Racing’ plan for races statewide,” said O’Neil. “We are grateful for their thoughtful approach and our community is excited to get back to in-person racing.”
The weekend-long event brings together athletes of all ages and abilities to compete in Olympic and sprint distance triathlons. Everything takes place at Carson Beach.
