The New Jersey State Triathlon is the largest triathlon in the State selling out annually to 3,000 triathletes. Since its inception, the race has hosted triathletes from almost all fifty states and dozens of international competitors. In 2013, the State officially recognized the New Jersey State Triathlon and thus was born “The New Jersey State Championships”.
The official resolution from the State of New Jersey recognized the race for its tremendous economic impact, charitable contributions and overall benefits it has brought to the local community, regional and state as a whole.
The 2013 race is the official Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship and qualifier for the USAT National Championships. CGI Racing has decided to take this a step further, or to be more exact, a step closer to home!
There are state champions crowned for almost every sport. Football, baseball, basketball, tennis, cross country, rowing, soccer, golf, name the sport and there’s a great chance there is a way to crown state champions.
This year at the NJ State Triathlon we will be recognizing and honoring the New Jersey State Champions in the sport of Triathlon. Overall men and women winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) for both the Sprint and Olympic distances will receive the coveted title of “State Champion”. Additionally, “Age Group State Champions” will be crowned for each distance for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
Athletes eligible for the “State Champion” must be legal residents of NJ at the time of the triathlon. State Champion winners are eligible for overall and age group awards as part of the New Jersey State Triathlon. Overall winners will win overall awards only and their age group awards will roll down to the next eligible athlete.
Do you want something truly impressive to put on your mantle? How about formal recognition of your “State Champion” status!
The New Jersey State Triathlon continues to be at the forefront of incorporating unique elements to the race to not only grow the sport of triathlon but continually recognize deserving multisport athletes.
