The Boston Triathlon, that was set to take place this weekend, has been rescheduled to a later date – Aug. 20-21 – due to “historic weather conditions” that are impacting the city. The Boston Triathlon consists of an Olympic Distance event, a Sprint Distance and several distances for kids.

“We take the health of our athletes, volunteers, and spectators seriously. Boston does not compromise on safety or athlete experience. Due to the oppressive heat and humidity that could cause serious health concerns while competing this weekend, we worked together with the City of Boston and State of Massachusetts to postpone the race until August. Everyone should stay safe and hydrate as much as possible this weekend”, President and Race Director Michael O’Neil stated in a press release.
