NEW Bike/Run – No Swim Option

Produced by Life Time

July 11, 2021

To better accommodate and provide greater flexibility for our athletes, we have introduced this Bike/Run in-person event as an option for those who are not able to properly train for the swim due to COVID shutdowns and restrictions, or who simply wish to only complete the bike and run legs of the International distance event.

On July 11 2021, registered athletes will enjoy the convenience of completing only the Bike and Run portions of the race on the same course as fellow athletes competing in the Verizon New York City Triathlon.

Bike/Run Details

Whether you are a seasoned triathlon veteran or brand new to the sport, anyone can participate! Athletes will complete the same Bike and Run course as the International Triathlon distance athletes. View Course Map.

25 Miles (40K) Bike | 6.2 Miles (10K) Run

Looking to Give Back? 

When COVID-19 hit New York City, the New York City Department of Education – the largest school district in the country – stepped up to make sure none of their 1.1 million students and no New Yorker went hungry. To date, 40 million meals have been served – a critical part of helping to fight food insecurity during the COVID-19 crisis. Please consider donating so they can continue to serve an average of 550,000 meals a day. Your gift will help offset the extraordinary expenses that the district is incurring due to this health crisis, and that are not covered by the city, state or federal governments. Funds may also be used to accelerate scratch cooking and preparation of clean, wholesome and simply prepared foods in all schools, while also achieving the elimination of the Harmful 7 categories of ingredients in all of District’s schools.

100% of your donation will be turned into a taxdeductible donation to the Life Time Foundation, all of which will benefit the New York City Department of Education’s food program.
