According to USA Triathlon, the NYC Triathlon is offering a special 48 hour early entry period for USAT members on October 30 and 31st, 2008. General entry opens to the public on November 1st, 2008. Last year, the race sold out in seven hours on the opening day of registration.

Here is the text of the release from USA Triathlon:

USA Triathlon is pleased to offer an exclusive 48-hour early entry period to enter the Nautica NYC Triathlon before registration opens to the general public. Regular registration opens November 1st at 12:01 a.m. EST. The race sold out in 7 hours, 46 minutes last year. If you want to race the Big Apple, enter NOW!

You must be a current USAT member to enter and you’ll need your USAT number during registration.

From the very fast Hudson River through Manhattan and finishing in famed Central Park. More details at

Early entry spots limited! The clock is ticking! Time is running out! Register now!

I raced the NYC Triathlon a few years ago and I can attest that it is a fun race in an exciting venue. Although swimming in the Hudson River may leave something to be desired, running in Central Park makes up for it. The only downside to racing in New York was the cost of transporting our bikes from the airport to the hotel, because like us most people don’t rent cars in New York and our bike cases were too large for regular taxis. We had to rent a fairly large van for our three bikes (and hard cases), which cost us some money. Otherwise, it was a great event and a lot of fun.
