Pro Division

Professional Triathletes

The Pro division is back for the 2023 New York City Triathlon produced by Life Time, with a NEW fall race date: Sunday, October 1st.

The NYC Tri hosts an exhibition race for professional triathletes. In 2021, the prize purse was reinstated and has increased for the 2023 race!

Pro triathletes will compete for $19,000 in cash split among top female and male finishers (see distribution below). The competition will remain “draft-free” as athletes swim, bike and run on the same course as the Age Group athletes.

To qualify, athletes must own a current industry-designated “Professional” triathlete racing card from their home country. A copy of a valid USAT pro card or a letter from the athlete’s Federation must be emailed to us in order to register for the NYC Pro division race.
