On your marks, get set, go!
The drawing for the 2020 Verizon New York City Triathlon (July 19, 2020) lottery took place on Monday, January 13, 2020.
If you missed the application window or did not get selected through the drawing, you are still invited to participate in the 2020 Verizon New York City Triathlon! You may opt to register for the VIP Champions Club — NOW OPEN — or to race with select official charity teams.
Why a lottery? Due to construction on the course scheduled to occur through 2024 by the city of New York, we have moved to a reduced field size of 2500 athletes in order to maintain the exceptional experience for which this triathlon is known. We are excited about the upcoming course and venue changes, but want to ensure we provide a safe and fun event for all participants. In order to provide the most fair registration opportunity for all athletes we have moved to a lottery system.
