    IMNY Event Recap

    On August 11, 2012, members of Fil-Am Tri Club – East Coast, Tao Tri Club and the Morningstar New York parish eagerly gathered to man a bike aid station for the inaugural Ironman New York. The event consists of a 2.4M swim in the lovely Hudson River (sarcasm!), 112M bike down the Palisades and 26.2M run finishing in Riverside Park under 17 hours. Volunteers drove and rode to the bike aid station at miles 37 and 73 of the bike route and got to cheer on future Ironmen, including the pros, whilst in transit to the aid station.

    As with every Ironman race, a city needs to literally close down to house a race of this distance and magnitude. The Ironman and local New York / New Jersey communities were giddy with excitement at the prospect of hosting this event and finishing in a city as vibrant as New York. Even at a hefty price tag of $895 (normal registration is ~$600+), the race sold out in a mind-blowing 11 minutes!
