2021 Verizon New York City Triathlon Athlete Guide – Bike/Run
Welcome to the 2021 Verizon New York City Triathlon Bike/Run – No Swim event!
After two years of unexpected and unfortunate cancellations of our iconic event, we’re BACK and ready to roll! While this year will look a tad bit different than prior years, we’re thrilled to be welcoming almost 2,000 athletes to join us for an exciting (and safe) race this year. And for the first time ever – this NEW Bike/Run – No Swim option!
Over 20 Pros and 15 Paratriathletes will be joining us in the International Triathlon, each division competing for the coveted prize purse to be distributed among the top three male and female athletes.
We have over 60% of the field represented as first-timers to our NYC Triathlon, and almost 1/4 of the field are first-timers to any triathlon. It is our pleasure to initiate these rookie triathletes into our sport this year – let’s all give them a warm and encouraging welcome!
Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a rookie, all athletes are instructed to review all event information within our 2021 Bike/Run Athlete Guide as there are specific logistical and safety measures, as well as important Event Rules that must be followed. Please take a moment to review the document in its entirety to ensure a smooth and successful event for everyone.
We are looking forward to hosting our athletes in the heart of the Big Apple!
