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

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.

CHIP TIMING: GFNY is a timed race. Each athlete has their own timing chip, which starts right after you cross the start line and stops when you cross the finish line. Timing results will be available at gfny.cc/results.

FINISHER MEDAL: Every GFNY finisher receives a medal, no matter which distance they complete. All finishers also earn a “Finish” towards their 3x2023 GFNY medal or the 10x medal. Go to gfny.com/medals for more information on GFNY’s multi-finisher medals.
