Description

Volunteer in 2019!
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 Triathlon a memorable experience for everyone involved.  We couldn't do it without you!


Volunteer in 2019 and receive a discount for the 2020 race!
All Volunteers that complete their volunteer shift during the 2019 race, receive priority entry into the 2020 race. Only one entry is given per person. If you work multiple shifts, you will only receive one entry. 

Volunteer Group Program

The New York City Triathlon will provide charitable contributions to groups of 15+ volunteers. To learn more about group opportunities and how you can earn a donation for your sports team, non-profit, or other organization, please contact volunteerNY@LT.LIFE.

Have 10 or more but not 15 volunteers? Still reach out to us!

Plans Changed? No longer able to volunteer in 2019?
