In closing, the CNY Triathlon Club is a volunteer organization operated and led by members of the club and supported by its members and sponsors.
CNY Triathlon Club was formed to bring together people in the Central New York area to strengthen and advance the sport of triathlon; promote the educational pursuit of the triathlon and general physical fitness; represent the sport of triathlon within the community and publish and disseminate information related to the sport of triathlon.

Our mission is to reach beyond ourselves and encourage others by sharing our experiences.

If any club member would like to contribute to our newsletter or help in arranging it each month it would be greatly appreciated. I can be contacted at
