Thanks for visiting the Sun Multisport Events web site. We've created a series of first-class multisport events throughout New England from sprint to half distance triathlons plus youth focused races and running events. We also produce the TRI-MANIA Summit and Expo series, the definitive kick-off to the new season, with events in Boston and Washington DC.
On January 27, 2014 we received two prestigious awards in the “Triathlete’s Choice” awards program administered by Triathlon Business International (TBI), an industry organization dedicated to promoting the sport and business of triathlon. Our triathlon series was awarded “Best Race Series” and our Patriot Half was recognized as “Best Small Race” (less than 1,000 athletes) in an online survey of triathletes across the country. If you were among the many who voted for us... THANK YOU! Read the press release here.
We invite you to sign up for one of our races and experience what makes them the best in the region. Our priorities are athlete safety, superior organization, scenic courses, generous volunteer support and careful attention to the little things that add up to an event experience that has exceeded the expectations of thousands of athletes. Come to a race produced by Sun Multisport Events and you'll discover personalized rack positions and teams grouped together in transition, abundant course signage, friendly volunteers, water bottles wrapped in cold towels and ice baths at the finish, finisher medals and more.

My recent experience at the New England Trifest was exceptional; in fact, it was the best organized triathlon that I have ever participated in and that includes the US Nationals. Your team went above and beyond to deliver an experience for the athletes that I have not seen elsewhere – details like live music, veggie options, vendor mall, professional triathlete presentation, bike mechanics on site, and ice baths at the finish line, complimentary post-race massage, etc (to name a few). Thanks again for organizing such an outstanding experience - In the infamous words of the Terminator… “I’ll be back!”

I just wanted to say what an amazing job you did with the Whaling City Triathlon. It was my first tri, so although I don't have anything to compare it to, I thought it was so well organized, everyone was really friendly, the course was incredible, and it was an amazing experience all around! Thanks for all your hard work, it was clear you really put a lot into this. Cheers!
I just wanted to thank you for an exceptional race this weekend. At every turn, from start to finish, this race was well managed. Particular highlights for me were the abundance of volunteers, the great race swag (awesome medals!) and the exceptional organization. This race (Westborough Sprint Triathlon) is without a doubt one of my favorites now and I'll definitely be back next year. Loved the course (particularly the run!). I just wanted to let you know that I think you did a fantastic job and I look forward to participating in more Sun Multisport events in the future. Thanks again!
You never fail to amaze me at the wonderful job you do. I’ve been participating in your events since the first Patriot Half in 2007 and you always come through. Your events are so well organized and packed with amenities such as ice cold washcloths at the finish line. I loved the cool mist fans and the after race food was delicious! And what a venue! Beautiful roads to ride and run, perfectly marked, not a chance of going wrong. Thank you!
I feel TRI-MANIA was well run. Seminar/clinic topics were widely varied and content was dead-on and pertinent. Exhibitors were friendly, not pushy. Event staff was helpful, happy, and energetic. Loved the things for kids; most applicable and valuable. Venue and access was good. Overall, excellent! Nice job.
I'm writing you and the entire team of people that made this race possible. It was an awesome 1st time triathlon race experience for me and need to say the event just blew me away... Everything was organized on superb level, all the people were very positive and supportive, the safety of the race and the atmosphere was really great... looking forward to next year's event... keep up the good work.
Thank you for an awesome event last weekend. This was my first Cranberry Trifest Olympic distance tri and just my second Olympic tri overall and I'm not going to lie - the distance was hard -- but the race itself was a blast. Your staff and volunteers were amazingly organized, helpful, and cheerful. The swim in the lake was smooth, the bike loop was scenic, and the run was great even with the hill at the end. All routes were very clear and easy-to-follow with big thanks to the police and volunteers stationed at all turns. I loved the band and BBQ at the finish and also appreciate the race's tech T shirt. I'll wear mine with pride.
