Friends of the Riverfront is committed to the safety of all Pittsburgh Triathlon participants. As we learned from the 2014 event, improvements are still needed in communicating Allegheny River water quality on the day of the swim events. We are working to develop a revised communications policy for the 2015 Pittsburgh Triathlon that addresses the swimming/water portion of the Triathlon. Our goal is to have a revised communications policy in place by year-end. As the host of the event, Friends of the Riverfront strives to provide an enjoyable experience for all. We hope to see you at the 2015 Pittsburgh Triathlon.
