Description

Volunteer in 2018!
The New York City Triathlon wouldn't be possible without the help and support of the 1,500+ volunteers that lend a hand race weekend.  We cannot thank you enough for donating your time and effort to help make the  NYC Tri a memorable experience for everyone involved.  We couldn't do it without you!

Volunteer in 2018 and Receive a Guaranteed Entry into the 2019 race!
All Volunteers that complete their volunteer shift during the 2018 race, receive guaranteed entry into the 2019 race. Only one guaranteed entry is given per person. If you work multiple shifts, you will only receive one guaranteed entry.

Guaranteed Entry Explained:
A guaranteed entry means you will receive the opportunity to register for the 2019 race before the Registration Drawing opens, and therefore are guaranteed a spot in the race.  Volunteers have the option to use this entry or pass it on to a family member of friend.  You MUST register during the time frame we specify.  It DOES NOT mean that you get free entry into the race.

Plans Changed? No longer able to volunteer in 2018?
If you have registered to volunteer race weekend and can no longer attend, please email us at volunteer@nyctri.com.  Failure to notify race management prior to your shift that you will not be in attendance will result in a permanent ban from volunteering at the New York City Triathlon.
