Important Race Update
Due to extreme temperatures and humidity levels, the 2XU New York City Triathlon staff wish to advise all athletes of the following:
Due to continued, excessive heat, we have elevated the Event Alert System level to MODERATE. You will notice a series of color-coded flags throughout the venue. Sunday’s race will begin under a yellow flag, which means conditions are less than ideal. Should the EAS level further change, the corresponding flag color will be raised.
Beyond six fully-stocked fluid stations, the event has increased the amount of misting stations and medical support throughout the event. Ice towels will be distributed at the Finish Line.
Plan to adequately hydrate with water and Gatorade Endurance formula before, during and after the event. Water will be available in transition as well as at the swim start. Water and Gatorade Endurance Formula will be available across all Run Course aid stations. Listen to your body. If you don’t feel comfortable, slow down and ask for assistance.
Should conditions worsen, or the EAS level change, please follow staff instruction accordingly. For the most current details, please visit the 2XU New York City Triathlon Facebook page and listen for race day public address announcements.
Thank you for your attention and support. We appreciate your understanding as we implement these changes to provide you with a safe race experience.
