This initiative celebrates the sense of community that comes with racing. We’re thrilled to collaborate with The Boston Triathlon again this year to help new triathletes realize their goals.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 06, 2015
City Sports, the Boston-based specialty sporting goods retailer, has renewed their partnership with the Boston Triathlon. City Sports will co-produce two training clinics for first-time triathletes this summer with ethos, the owner and operator of the Boston Triathlon.
The first of two clinics will take place on Thursday, July 9, at 6:00 p.m. at the North End Greenway. The event will help new triathletes prepare for the transition from biking to running in a single training session. Participants will ride stationary bikes and take part in a run led by triathlon coaches to mimic the events on race day. The second and final clinic will be held a few days before the race, August 6, at the City Sports store at 480 Boylston Street in Boston’s Back Bay. Triathlon experts will be on hand to answer any last minute race questions and provide recommendations to help each athlete get outfitted for the event.
“This initiative celebrates the sense of community that comes with racing,” said Eve Bould, Director of Marketing for City Sports. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with The Boston Triathlon again this year to help new triathletes realize their goals.”
First-time triathletes who are members of the City Sports loyalty program will be eligible to register for The Boston Triathlon at a reduced fee of $65. All other City Sports loyalty club members will receive a 10% discount off the $110-130 registration fee. “City Sports and ethos are excited to renew this partnership for The Boston Triathlon. Both of our organizations are committed to growing the sport of triathlon with this ‘First-time Triathlete’ initiative,” said Michael O’Neil, President of ethos.
Clinics are free of charge and open to anyone who registers in advance. Registration details are available on the City Sports blog. Those who are not currently members of the City Sports Insider program can sign up online to join and receive email updates regarding clinics as well as race details.
This year’s Boston Triathlon will take place Sunday, August 9. Beginning at 8:00 a.m., the race will start with a half-mile swim in Dorchester Bay, followed by a 9-mile bike ride (looping around William Day Boulevard), and ending with a 4.4-mile run to Head Island Causeway, better known as “Sugarbowl.”
