The New York City Triathlon is one of the nation’s premier urban triathlons, with a race course that wraps through some of the busiest streets in Manhattan. Athletes are able to tackle these roads traffic-free in this International distance event. The race begins with a 1500-meter swim with the fast current in the Hudson River. After a quick transition in Riverside Park, athletes cycle 40-kilometers up the Henry Hudson Parkway into the Bronx and back down along the west side of Manhattan. Once on the run, athletes begin the 10-kilometer run across 72nd Street from Riverside Park and embark on the relentless hills in Central Park with a grand finish in the middle of the park on Dead Road.
1500 Meter Swim
The race starts on Manhattan’s Westside at 99th Street and the Hudson River. The point to point swim course is near the seawall to minimize the effect of the current. Kayakers, lifeguards, jet-skiers, and other members of the water safety team frame a 20 yard swim lane from start to finish. Athletes swim south and exit near the 79th Street Boat Basin before running into transition. The Hudson River, one of America’s most famous waterways, is home to many open water swims and is considered one of the cleanest rivers in New York. Because it feeds into the ocean, it is a salt-water river.
40 Kilometer Bike
The cycling course exits Riverside Park at 79th Street. Athletes enter the northbound entrance of the Henry Hudson Highway, staying in the right lane. Athletes will continue on a moderately hilly course north out of Manhattan, over the Hudson River Bridge, and exit onto the Mosholu Parkway. The course proceeds south on the Mosholu and U-turns at Gunhill Road in the Bronx. Participants will proceed back to the Henry Hudson Parkway and ride south in the Northbound Lane to 57th street where another u-turn will be completed and cyclists will head north and exit the Henry Hudson Parkway at 79th street and proceed back to the transition area. All bicycle traffic will utilize the normally northbound roadway which will be totally closed to vehicular traffic.
