SWIM – Canceled
The swim will be replaced by a run to start the race.
Current water quality concerns in the Hudson River from the recent rainfall have prompted officials to cancel the swim portion of Sunday’s New York City Triathlon. While options were explored to move forward with the swim, we hope participants will understand the critical need to prioritize the health and safety of all athletes, race officials and volunteers. Given this decision, the event has been altered to a Run–Bike–Run duathlon format for all registered athletes.
Starting at 81st St., athletes will run along the seawall of the Hudson River and proceed to Transition at 101st St. (Riverside Park) for the subsequent bike leg.
View the modified course map below featuring Run leg 1 to replace the swim. Start wave times originally assigned will remain the same; Duathlon athletes will adhere to their respective Age Group start time listed in the chart below. Athletes should report to the start in their run gear.
