Boston Marathon race director Dave McGillivray has been elected to the USA Triathlon Hall of Fame, and will be inducted at a banquet in January in Colorado Springs, Colo.
McGillivray, whose company organizes, produces or consults on running and multisport events around the world, was a triathlete himself and has been race director for more than 150 triathlons. He has also served on boards and committees within the sport, including directing several International Triathlon Union World Cup events.
"USA Triathlon is thrilled to welcome this well-deserving and diverse class into our hall of fame. Susan Bradley-Cox, Dave McGillivray and Dave Scott are outstanding representatives of the multisport lifestyle, and we are incredibly grateful for their contributions to our sport," said Chuck Graziano, chair of the USA Triathlon Hall of Fame Committee, via a news release.
USA Triathlon began its hall of fame in 2008.
McGillivray has been race director of the last 23 Boston Marathons. He lives in North Andover.
