Why No Lottery?

We’ve made some changes to registration for this year’s Verizon New York City Triathlon produced by Life Time. Instead of entering a lottery, racers can now register directly here on our website — without the uncertainty — guaranteeing their spot to take on the Concrete Jungle. Here’s why:

  • Easier, more informed decisions for YOU. We want our triathletes to have all the information, flexibility, and peace of mind necessary to make a confident registration decision. Instead of needing to commit half a year ahead of time, you can now sign up when you feel ready (space permitting).
  • More newcomers to the sport. We want our first-time triathletes to feel welcomed and prepared to experience NYC on this unique level. Since many newcomers to the sport don’t commit to a race until they feel confident they’re ready, we want to give them ample space and flexibility to advocate for the growth of our beloved sport.
  • Eliminating uncertainty. With all the uncertainty surrounding athletes’ well-being (e.g., injury, sickness, etc.) and stages of life (e.g., moving, marriage, kids, etc.), general registration helps eliminate some of those questions and complex variables in the registration process.

We want YOU — our incredibly dedicated and talented athletes — to have everything you need to register for this one-of-a-kind experience in the Greatest City in the World. We hope these changes help make your registration experience easier, and we can’t wait to see you swimming in the Hudson, riding up the Parkway, and racing to the finish line in Central Park.

The Concrete Jungle awaits. We’ll see you in NYC.


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. Deferral processing fees and redemption deadlines apply.

Registrants are able to request a deferral of their participation up until 2 weeks (14 days) prior to the event. The deferral fee will be administered at the time of the deferral. Once the deferral purchase is completed, the athlete will be sent an email confirmation of their deferral status.

Important Details

  • Your registration will NOT automatically rollover to the following year. You MUST REGISTER for the race.
  • You will be emailed instructions immediately upon the opening of registration for the following year’s event. Note: this email will be sent to the email address used in your RunSignup profile when you initially registered for the event.
  • Your deferral code listed in that instructions email will expire 60 days after it is initially provided. If your code expires, you are NOT guaranteed a spot if the event sells out unless you are officially registered.
  • Processing fees for registration will apply.

See the chart above for associated fees and additional details.

*There are no deferral fee refunds under any circumstances.
