During the weekend of the Nickel City Triathlon, ALL ARE WELCOME TO PARTICIPATE!  Age group olympic and sprint distance races are starting off both Saturday and Sunday.  Following are the Elite races.  Come out and race on the same course that the pros will be racing on.  

Age group races are special qualifiers for the USAT National Championships held in Burlington, VT.  The top 33% of each age group finishers will qualify for Nationals.  The Age Group race consists of a traditional non-drafting style triathlon sanctioned by USAT.

This is the culmination of the Triathlon season in Western New York!  Buffalo is the host of the USAT Elite National Championships where the prize purse is the richest in the series at $75,000, of which $25,000 will serve as a bonus for the top-five American finishers.  Double points will be offered as well to the Pro-Field, making the Nickel City Triathlon a must do!

The Nickel City Triathlon is also part of the USAT ELITE RACE SERIES - an ITU compliant race, with a DRAFT LEGAL, completely closed bike course. A super competitive and fast race, this special Elite Draft Legal race will attract the best names in the sport, as top Elite athletes fight for a spot in the 2012 Olympic games in London.
