2017 NYC Tri Athlete & Spectator Guide Now Available

“In New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there’s nothing you can’t do.”

The city of lights. The city of opportunity. The Big Apple.  Nothing says New York more than the Hudson River, the West Side Highway and Central Park! Since its inception, the New York City Triathlon has been a stage for Olympians, Paralympians and tough-as-nails New Yorkers. Each section of the course tests your preparation and commitment.

Some say you’re a real New Yorker if you live here for two years. We say you’re a real New Yorker if you’ve conquered the New York City Triathlon. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. Make sure to check out the 2016 Athlete and Spectator Guide* for detailed schedules, course information and more.

2016 Panasonic NYC Triathlon Course Adjustments

Due to the extreme heat and to ensure the safety of our athletes, the Panasonic NYC Triathlon, in conjunction with the City of New York and respective city agencies, made a collaborative decision to proactively alter the course for Sunday’s race. Course changes are outlined below.

  • The swim and bike courses will remain as is. The run course has now been shortened to an 8K run for all athletes (With the exception of professional triathletes who will continue with the original 10K course).
  • Rather than crossing Central Park at the 110th Street Transverse, athletes will be directed to cross the 102nd Street Crossing to the East Drive. (Please see updated Central Park course map).
  • Doggy Dash participants will follow the shortened course.

Additional details will be provided in the mandatory briefings. Please be alert and abide by the precautions of race staff, volunteers, and public safety officials out on the course. We also ask that you review the event alert system (EAS) and make yourself familiar with the alert levels (chart below). We appreciate your understanding as we implement these changes to provide you with a safe race experience.
