The Columbia Threadneedle Investments Boston Triathlon is expected to
bring more than 2,000 participants to the South Boston waterfront for
two days of races for adults, relay teams, kids and local Boston
companies. Participants can raise funds for the event's charitable
sponsor, Boston Medical Center. Registration is now open for the 11th
annual event, scheduled for July 27-28, 2019.

The weekend-long event brings together athletes of all ages and
abilities to compete in Olympic and sprint distance triathlons, the
Boston Corporate Cup competition, and Kids Day on Saturday July 27th.
The Olympic and sprint distance competitions combine a swim at
Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation's (DCR) Carson
Beach, a bike ride on DCR William Day Boulevard and a beautiful run
along the South Boston waterfront. Additional information is available
at BostonTri.com.

"Columbia Threadneedle Investments' continued commitment to the Boston
Triathlon will have a significant impact, cementing the race as a
signature event for the city of Boston and a destination event for
athletes from across the Commonwealth, the country and the world," said
Michael O'Neil, president of the Boston Triathlon. "We are thrilled to
have Columbia Threadneedle's continued commitment as title sponsor and
look forward to successful events for years to come."

"We're proud to continue our partnership with Boston's only triathlon
and look forward to helping grow the event further by attracting more
participants, volunteers and fans," said Ted Truscott, CEO of Columbia
Threadneedle Investments. "It's an outstanding event for all
participants, and each year, I am inspired by the number of our
employees who commit to the challenge of a triathlon, alongside their
colleagues, families and friends, as they raise money for Boston Medical
Center. We are gearing up for what's to be an amazing weekend in July."

Once again, ethos and Columbia Threadneedle Investments are working
closely with the event's charity partner, Boston Medical Center, the
largest safety-net hospital and busiest provider of trauma and emergency
services in New England.

Charitable money raised will help Boston Medical Center—a national model
for excellence in caring for the urban and working poor—work towards its
long-term goal of making Boston the healthiest city by 2030. This goal,
known as Vision 2030, encompasses the longstanding belief
that when an organization invests in the root causes of urban health
issues, the community and its people greatly benefit and thrive. Money
raised at the 2019 Boston Triathlon will support Vision 2030,
with a continued emphasis on programs that help members of our community
who struggle with substance use disorders. To learn more about
