GFNY is a personal endurance challenge where you compete against others, the clock and yourself. Some athletes will compete for the podium, others will do their best to beat the cut-off. GFNY is about doing your best. You make the event what you want it to be. But it is meant to be a personal challenge. 

GFNY World events provide you that same challenge in locations around the world. Additionally, you get the chance to earn a spot in the qualifier corral at every GFNY. All GFNY events provide the following for you to BE A PRO FOR A DAY:

  • Mass start
  • Individual chip timing from start to finish with awards for all categories
  • Closed roads or police moderated traffic that ensures you don't have to stop during the race

Perks included as part of GFNY

THE JERSEY: All riders receive the official GFNY race jersey, which is mandatory attire at the race. The jersey is designed in NYC and Made in Italy.

FINISHER MEDAL: Every GFNY finisher receives a medal, no matter which distance they complete. All finishers also earn a “Finish” towards their 3x2020-2021 GFNY medal or the 10x medal. Go to gfny.com/medals for more information on GFNY’s multi-finisher medals.
