Description

Race Start Time and Location:

On August 25, we are back at the world’s most iconic city parks, Central Park, for our 40th annual New York City Duathlon. The park is always gorgeous this time of year with trees and flowers in full summer bloom!

Here is what you can expect on race day. At 7:30 am the race will start by the Central Park Boat House parking lot which will also serve as your Transition area. Both Run #1 and #2 are 2.2 miles each, an out/back format.  You’ll run along the east side and making a turn around point by the 96th street. No significant elevation gain other than at the beginning you have to run up Cat Hill.  

The bike route consists of riding 2 loops around the entire Central Park drive. As a result of the current construction in the Harlem section of the park, we will NOT be hitting Harlem Hill. Instead, riders will loop around and to the west side through the 102nd St Traverse. You are riding 5 miles per loop, 10 miles in total. The total elevation gain is about 250ft per loop with some challenging rolling hills throughout.

New York City Duathlon distance:

  • Run distance is 2.2 miles.
  • Bike distance is 10 miles (2 loops).
  • Run distance is 2.2 miles.

Volunteers:

You are needed from 5:00 am to 11 am. Our races start at 7:30am unless stated the otherwise. Once you arrived, report to our Race Directors (George or Hunter). They will go over your race duty as well as where you need to be. Don’t leave until the race is finished. You have to sign out to earn your race credit for your next race.

The New York City Duathlon is not USAT certified or sanctioned. USAT racing license isn’t required to compete in our race.
