As Boston celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Columbia Threadneedle Investments Boston Triathlon, a summer storm forced the cancellation of the swim leg, turning the triathlon into a duathlon. 2016 Olympian American Ben Kanute captured the men’s title while Canadian Angela Naeth claimed the women’s victory.
Overall, approximately 2000 athletes representing 42 states and 15 countries competed in Boston’s only triathlon—which featured both sprint and Olympic distances.
With the cancellation of the swim leg, athletes began the race with a 2K run on the beach before cycling along the DCR William J. Day Boulevard, and running through Joe Moakley Park. Read the recap here
