New York Triathlon (NYTRI) started as a grassroots race production company out of Syracuse, NY in 1983 and is now the longest running triathlon organization in the Northeast. During this period NYTRI worked hard to produce the best value in multi-sport events available to athletes in the Tri-State area. To date, NYTRI has organized over 600 events that drew approximately 100,000 competitors, many of them first-timers to multi-sport competition.
