Our Values

Fairness

The cornerstone of GFNY is fairness, in every aspect. GFNY takes extra care to ensure that every athlete is treated fairly, treated in the same way as other athletes, and that every athlete has a fair race. GFNY goes to great lengths and each race organizer does their utmost to ensure the fairness of your race.
 
At GFNY, every race and athlete follow the same, standard set of Event Rules and the same, standard Code of Conduct. Every athlete accepts these terms during registration and every athlete is expected to follow them.
 
Before a race, GFNY conducts out-of-competition doping controls. 
 
During a race, GFNY conducts motor checks. GFNY has various checkpoints along the course to ensure that every athlete is completing the entire race course. GFNY also has a variety of marshals, video and photo team in the race to ensure every participant is adhering to race rules.
 
After the race, GFNY conducts in-competition doping controls and motor checks. For anyone found in violation of a rule, a uniform penalty system is applied by the GFNY Race Judge with zero favoritism or special treatment.

Inclusivity

GFNY is open to everyone: man or woman, young or old, pro athlete or weekend warrior. No matter our profession, religion, heritage or place of birth, when we wear our GFNY jersey, we are all part of one, global family of like-minded athletes.
 
We carry this spirit of inclusivity across all of GFNY. GFNY is the world’s most international series, with athletes from 120 countries taking part in GFNY races each year. One of the most unique experiences about GFNY is how diverse GFNY participants are, and traveling to GFNY races allows you to experience sport in a new destination and also a new cultural setting, while still under the safe, familiar GFNY experience.
