Cohasset: 9th Annual Triathlon This Sunday

Organizers are dxpecting 1,000 athletes from around metro Boston and 28 states. The athletes will compete in the event with a 1/4-mile swim, a 13-mile bike ride, and finish with a 5k run through the streets of Cohasset.
Race Founder and Director Bill Burnett, who also lives in Cohasset, tells us what makes this race different from the rest:
“It is an incredible event. Over the last 9 years, we have raised $1.1 million dollars for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to help find a cure for type 1 Diabetes … We are one of the largest triathlons in the region, and the fastest to sell out sprint triathlon in the country,” said Burnett.
The race starts at 7:45 AM this Sunday.
Parking is available at the South Shore Music Circus; shuttle buses take spectators to Sandy Beach, as early as 6 AM.
