1,700 Compete in Boston’s Only Triathlon

The Boston Triathlon features a tagline of "Come for the Race, Stay for the After-Party."

The Boston Triathlon features a tagline of “Come for the Race, Stay for the After-Party” and nearly 1,700 did just that for the 2017 running of the event, the only triathlon in Boston, on Sunday. Athletes swam in the fresh waters of Dorchester Bay, biked through Boston city streets and then ran along the scenic Southie shoreline in both sprint- and Olympic-distance options. Following the race, athletes celebrated with friends and family in the beer garden. The race weekend also included a popular kids’ splash and dash event at Carson Beach.
