Volunteer in 2021 and receive a priority discounted entry into the 2022 race
All volunteers that complete their volunteer shift during the 2021 race will receive a discounted entry into the 2022 race. In order to be eligible for the guaranteed entry, you must work the shift in its entirety AND sign in and sign out with the Volunteer Team Captain at your designated location. Only one guaranteed entry is given per person. If you work multiple shifts, you will receive one guaranteed entry.
Priority entry explained
A priority entry means you get the opportunity to register for the 2021 race before registration opens for the general public, and therefore are guaranteed a spot in the race. It DOES NOT mean that you get free entry into the race and you MUST register during the time frame we specify.
Can I volunteer and give my priority discounted entry to a friend/family member?
Yes! Simply forward your registration email (sent before registration opens) to your friend/family member. Any entry recipient who is found to have sold their entry will be permanently banned from competing in the Verizon New York City Triathlon.
NEW VOLUNTEER PERK!
Currently registered volunteers may refer a new volunteer to sign up and you both will be treated to a $10 Starbucks gift card, on us!*
How It Works:
The newly referred volunteer must follow these steps:
1. Register on Givepulse for the desired available shift
2. Email volunteerNYLT@gmail.com with the full name the person who referred them to sign up
3. Collect your gift cards at your volunteer shift!
*The person giving the referral must be registered to volunteer before the newly referred volunteer signs up. The referred volunteer must not already be registered as of June 10, 2021. Registered volunteers may be asked to relocate to another shift if the current shift selected is at capacity.
