Important Race Update – Swim Canceled
Current water quality concerns in the Hudson River from the recent rainfall have prompted officials to cancel the swim portion of Sunday’s New York City Triathlon. While options were explored to move forward with the swim, we hope participants will understand the critical need to prioritize the health and safety of all athletes, race officials and volunteers. Given this decision, the event has been altered to a Run–Bike–Run duathlon format for all registered athletes.
What this means:
• The race start location for ALL athletes (except Paratri) is 81st & Hudson River. Please arrive in your run gear.
• All start wave times remain the same.
• All Swim-bike-run registrants will be able to participate in the new Duathlon format, consisting of a 1-mile run, 24.8-mile bike, and 6.2-mile run.
• All Duathlon registrants will also participate in the new 1-mile run, 24.8-mile bike, and 6.2-mile run. Athletes will start with their respective Age Group – view the Start Wave Assignment chart to check your start time.
• Relay Teams: the swimmer will now participate in the 1-mile run. The cyclist and runner will participate in the 24.8-mile bike, and 6.2-mile run.
• Paratriathletes will participate in a bike/run starting at approximately 7:45-7:50am. Meet at the Paratri bike racks within Transition before it closes at 7:20am for race start.
Duathlon – Run, Bike, Run
Athletes will complete a 2-mile run and the the same bike and run course as International Tri participants – 40K bike up the West Side Highway, and 10K run to the Finish Line in Central Park. More info.
NEW International Tri Relay
Teams of 2 or 3 athletes will divide and conquer to complete a 1500m swim in the Hudson River, a 40K bike up the West Side Highway, and a 10K run to the Finish Line in Central Park. More info.

There are plenty of assumptions — and misperceptions — about the Hudson, its cleanliness and overall safety. Before you put on your swim cap and toe the start line, we’d like to share a few helpful things to know about the Hudson River including information on water cleanliness, river tides and race date selection. Watch the video below for the facts.
