About the Event

The New York City Triathlon is an Olympic Distance race consisting of a 0.93-mile (1500m) swim in the Hudson River, a 24.8-mile (40k) bike course on Manhattan's West Side highway followed by a 6.2-mile (10k)run course through Central Park. Each year, over 3,000 athletes participate in this New York City staple summer athletic event.

The Course

The race starts on Manhattan’s Westside at 99th street and the Hudson River. Athletes swim south and exit near the 79th Street Boat basin before running into transition. The cycling course exits Riverside Park at 79th Street and athletes will enjoy a moderately hilly course on the Henry Hudson highway north out of Manhattan, before the course U-turns in the Bronx, eventually returning to the 79th street transition area. Finally, athletes will exit transition a final time to commence the run across 72nd street into Central Park, completing the northern loop before reaching the finish line at Dead Road, just west of the band shell on the 72nd Street Transverse in Central Park.
