It is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the 2019 Verizon New York City Triathlon.

Through this week and into the approaching weekend, the New York City metro area has experienced multiple weather advisories, including severe heat warnings, continued heavy rainfall and thunderstorm watches. Race day temperature and humidity levels are projected to reach extreme levels.

After exhausting all options to mitigate athlete, volunteer, spectator and staff exposure alike, we are unable to provide either a safe event experience or an alternate race weekend. As a result, in collaboration with the City of New York and all supporting agencies, Sunday’s triathlon has been cancelled.

Despite the cancellation, registered athletes are able to visit the Sports & Fitness Expo and pick-up t-shirts and medals. Please read below for the full athlete impact, continuing events and the 2020 entry process.

Read the full details and implications here.

Next year’s event is scheduled for July 19, 2020.
