The Ivy Triathlon Championship
Congratulations Columbia, winners of the 2013 Ivy Triathlon Championship!
What is the Ivy Triathlon Championship?The 7th Ivy Tri Championship will be held as part of the NYC Triathlon Sunday, August 3, 2014. All current undergraduates, grad students, faculty, and alumni from each Ivy League school are eligible.
You don't have to be on a team - just race for your school!
How do I enter and is there an additional registration fee? No extra fee. Register for the NYC Triathlon, select your school from the drop down list, and you're in! If you have already registered and forgot to include your school info, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and she'll put you on your school's roster.
How does this work?The Ivy Tri Championship is a race within a race. You can compete for your school, and you are also eligible for awards in your age group, elite amateur, or pro division.
Who is the reigning champion?Columbia took home the title in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. Roar, Lion, roar! For alma mater on the Hudson shore!
How many people can compete for each school?Come one, come all, there’s no limit. This is an inclusive race. If you're a freshman and fast, or fifty and not-so-fast, it’s okay.
How does my school team win the Championship? The lowest combined time from the top five finishers from each school count toward the Championship. The top five must include at least one man and one woman. The name of the winning school goes on the perpetual trophy that stays in New York.
Can I wear a school jersey?You bet! Look like a team. Get creative, have fun, paint your face, or your whole body! Just make sure you get waterproof body paint.
What else do I need to know? Nothing. Have fun, promote this to your friends, and plan a party for your buddies in New York. Help us make this work. Once the New York City Triathlon closes registration, we will e-mail each entrant the names of their fellow ‘teammates’ – you may run into your long lost girlfriend or professor!
