Prospective Charities
Enroll as an Official Charity Partner

The New York City Triathlon Official Charity Partner Program provides a unique and active platform for non-profit partners to fundraise and gain valuable exposure through the race and race weekend events. Interested charities must submit an official application in order to be considered to pre-purchase entries into the sold out race.

Charities will be chosen based on its ability to sustain a successful program. Selected charities are solely responsible for recruiting athletes to sign up, fundraise, abide by registration deadlines and race on its behalf. The 2018 race is on Sunday, July 1, 2018.



The New York City Triathlon is the most highly publicized Olympic distance Triathlon in the nation. Often times the media surrounding the race is centered on the stories of the athletes and charities that our race supports. In addition, the race will provide the following benefits:

  • Each charity is listed on the Official Charity Program webpage on the race website. Charities will have the opportunity to have its logo, brief description and team benefits posted.
  • Race organizers will send out a total of two e-mail blasts to the race’s database advertising the Official Charity Program and encouraging athletes not admitted through the lottery to register with a Partner.
  • Promotions on race social media sites. The month of June is our designated “Charity Athlete Month!” We will be posting daily features on our Partners and charity athletes.
  • Gain additional exposure at the Sports and Fitness Expo! Official Charity Partners are given a discounted rate.
