Register for the Boston Triathlon

After a year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Boston Triathlon is back!  On August 28-29, the Columbia Threadneedle Investments Boston Triathlon returns to DCR Carson Beach, featuring a weekend of events, open to all! On August 29, the event will feature two main races:  The Olympic Race begins at 6:45 am and is a 1.5K swim, 35K bike, and 10K run. The Sprint Race starts at 9:15 a.m. and features a 750m swim, 17.5K bike, and 3K run.  What if you love to run, but hate to bike and swim? Grab two friends and sign up as a Relay Team!  Or encourage your friends, family or colleagues to join the fun by signing up for the Annual Team Challenge, a great way to experience the Sprint race from start to finish while participating in some friendly competition. You can learn more here! 

Mark Your Calendars: Joy Walks for Older Adults

Older adults are invited to join neighborhood Joy Walks walking clubs and participate in the Joy Walks Challenge taking place September through October in the City of Boston! Joy Walks will be organized by neighborhood organizations, including Boston Centers for Youth and Families (BCYF) and through Age Strong Commission partnerships with senior residential communities, senior and community centers, and nonprofit organizations serving many Boston immigrant communities.  The Joy Walks Challenge will award prizes to participants in categories including most miles walked by a group, most miles walked by a duo (a walker pushing a non-ambulatory participant), and most number of walks by a group. Joy Walks participants will enjoy complimentary pedometers, water bottles, and t-shirts. Older adults and Joy Walks clubs are invited to walk at designated Age Friendly walking paths, over 20 walking paths in Boston that are smooth-surfaced, stair-free, with parking close by!
