Because life happens


  • 2020 registered athletes may defer their 2020 entry online between 2/1/20 and 7/5/20. All deferrals must be done online, through your RunSignup account.  Any deferral requests after 7/5/20 must be sent to for evaluation.
  • Once a deferral is submitted, the decision is final and cannot be reversed. Current year registration fees are not refunded and cannot be applied to the following year. The current year’s registration fees will be donated to the Life Time Foundation and the Life Time Tri Scholarship fund.
  • Upon deferring, the registrant is eligible for guaranteed entry into the 2021 event ONLY at the cost of registration.
  • The Verizon New York City Triathlon has a strict no refund and no transfer policy. Athletes may not give or sell their entry to anyone else. Any athlete who is found to have given away or sold their race entries will be permanently banned from competing in future Life Time Triathlons.
  • Deferred race entries are only good for the following year.
  • Athletes may defer for any reason.
