In order to promote safety, the New York City Triathlon requires each swim participant to have successfully completed an OPEN WATER (not in a pool) swim with a minimum distance of ½ mile within 18 months prior to the 2017 race date.

2017 suggested open water swim dates will be available closer to Summer 2017.
*Remember, any ½ mile swim in the open water will meet the swim requirement. It does not need to be part of an organized swim.
