One of Boston’s most popular events is just around the corner. The 2022 Boston Triathlon will take place on July 23rd with many people who participate in the triathlon to test their stamina or support a cause. If you’re interested in booking a trip to the Boston Triathlon, here are six things you need to know.

1. The Course

The Boston Triathlon consists of three events: swim, bike, and run. The swim course starts and finishes on DCR Carson Beach near the DCR McCormack Bathhouse. The flat loop bike course is on a number of wide, car-free roads, including DCR William Day Blvd. The run course offers views of the harbor and the Boston Skyline. It is a loop course that finishes back at DCR Mother’s Rest Field.


2. The Official Race Charity Partner

The Official Race Charity Partner is Boston Medical Center. They have served as the Official Race Charity Partner for six years as of 2022.

Fundraising efforts will help to advance health equity.


3. Important Rules To Follow

There are some important rules that must be followed during the triathlon.

During the bike leg, wear your helmet, ride on the right side of your lane and keep three bike lengths between yourself and the cyclist in front of you.

You must also wear the colored swim cap provided to you at packet pickup. Finally, personal music players and headphones are not allowed.

4. How To Watch The Race

You can watch the swim portion of the race from Carson Beach on Dorchester Bay. The bike and run portions can be viewed anywhere along the course. You can also use Live Tracking via the website to track the progress of your family or friends in the race.

5. Equipment Needed

For the swim portion of the race, you will be provided with a swim cap. However, you must bring your own goggles and wet suit.

For the bike portion of the event, you must bring a helmet with a chinstrap. Bike rentals are not available from the race, but you can rent a bike from an outside vendor.


6. You Buy, We Give Youth Membership
