It’s back! The 16th annual Dover Sherborn Boosters triathlon event has returned after pausing for two pandemic years! This extra special race has been dubbed “The Sweet 16” and it looks like this sprint distance triathlon will be as thrilling as ever.
The race will be held Sunday, September 25th starting at 8 a.m., with an end time of 11 a.m. For eager participants and viewers alike, this is an occasion worth running to be a part of.
While a detailed course map isn’t available yet, the event begins with a .25 mile swim at Farm Pond. This crystal clean farm pond is filled with the purest fresh water within 20 miles of downtown Boston.
After an invigorating swim, participants and their fans experience a 14.3 mile bike race through rolling hills and lush Massachusetts backcountry – an experience that cyclists throughout the state are always eager to ride.
And last but not least, it’s time to run – a challenging yet pleasantly scenic route through the backroads of Sherborn and Dover on a well-designed, double-transition-style course winding through quiet roads and farms in the area.
Then, for a true photo finish, the race ends up at the Dover-Sherborn High School Stadium for an Olympic style close to see who wins this fun and intense thriller of a race. In 2019, the first place winner was Robert Raymond of Dover, who finished in an hour, five minutes, and 9.2 seconds.
Community Organized Excitement
The entire event is driven by volunteers to benefit the Dover-Sherborn Boosters, a non-profit organization that focuses on offering quality athletic experiences for children and promoting the benefits and joy of health and exercise.
After the race itself, a bountiful Breakfast Brunch Buffet awaits everyone participating, thanks to generous support from local merchants.
