This Sunday, July 14, Team LIVESTRONG will field a team for the first time in the 13th annual New York City Triathlon. The Aquaphor New York City Triathlon is an Olympic distance triathlon held every summer in New York City. Our team of 12 athletes will start with a 1500 meter swim in the mighty Hudson River. They will then transition to a 40k bike ride on Manhattan’s West Side Highway and finish the race by lacing up their running shoes for a 10k run through Central Park.
Each of our athletes not only dedicated themselves to the rigorous training that is required to finish the NYC Triathlon, but they also committed to fundraise for our cancer support programs. We have athletes that will be traveling from five different states and as far away as from Hawaii. There is no doubt they will be taking on the pavement and water of New York City with much more than just setting a PR in mind. They will be competing for family members and friends that have battled cancer and it’s this fighting spirit that will push them across the finish line.
