Thank you for sticking with us through the dynamically changing environment we all have been navigating. Together, we have proven our collective resolve and a remarkable resilience through uncertainty.

As we look toward brighter days, our team pushes forward with planning a safe and exciting return of the iconic Verizon New York City Triathlon this summer, pending evolving health guidelines and final approval from the City of New York. We are working in consultation with the City and will follow all state and federal health guidelines provided. With safety at the forefront, we highly anticipate welcoming our valued athletes to the start line in the Big Apple on Sunday, July 11, 2021 – including you!

The 2021 Lottery closed on April 28, 2021 and the VIP Experience is SOLD OUT! Those interested in participating in the 2021 NYC Tri may register with any of our Official Charity Partners, including Life Time Foundation, to swim, bike, run among the backdrop of the inspiring concrete jungle with us this summer.


We have revisited and revised our policy on entry refunds and deferrals to provide more athlete flexibility for event participation. A link to this policy will be included in the registration process, whereby participants must indicate that they understand and accept the terms.

Deferrals allow a participant unable to attend this year’s event to defer their registration to the following year, SPACE PERMITTING. The deferral is applied only to the event in question – in this case, the Verizon New York City Triathlon. Deferrals can only be applied to the same event the following year and cannot be carried over multiple years.
