Streamline Events started the way some of the best ideas do—over a couple of beers with friends. Back in 2006, our Founder Bill Burnett was unwinding from his day job in his coastal hometown of Cohasset, Massachusetts, and mentioned to his buddies that he wanted to start a triathlon--right there on Sandy Beach. The guys could see the vision and they never looked back. With Bill's leadership and a lot of teamwork, the following summer saw the first annual Cohasset Triathlon. A lifelong athlete and natural entrepreneur, Bill was hooked and wanted to do more. Demand for Bill's services increased along with his passion for the industry, and Streamline is now a full-time, flourishing business.
Today, Streamline Events executes some of the most sought-after events in the region. Based outside of Boston, Massachusetts, Streamline Events specializes in staging triathlon, running, cycling, and open water swimming events. The current portfolio of events are located in New England and Florida bringing in over 10,000 athletes annually. Streamline Events prides itself on giving back to the community and to charitable initiatives. It has been recently recognized nationally for helping to spearhead the largest third party fundraising event in the country for Type 1 Diabetes.
