The vivid green cycling jersey is a GFNY hallmark. It represents a global cycling community, a ‘family’ of like-minded people who come together to share the road and Be A Pro For A Day. After each race, each race’s GFNY jersey becomes a badge of honor for riders who took part in the event.
GFNY is a race and personal challenge. Every rider gets chip timed from start to finish regardless if they compete for the win, to set a personal best or just to complete the event. First and foremost, ALL riders regardless of ability, talent, level or placement in the start corrals will BE A PRO FOR A DAY ®. The entire racecourse is police-monitored for start-to-finish chip timing of all riders. The course has cheering friendly volunteers and fully stocked aid stations to keep you fueled. The race staff ensures whatever your pace, you will receive the same support and treatment for your entire race.
GFNY NYC offers the long marathon route, which is 100 miles long, and a medium route that is 50 miles long. Every finisher, regardless if they finish the long route or medium route, receive a Finisher Medal.
The Long Route finishers are ranked by finish time, and age group podium winners are invited on the podium during the Awards Ceremony.
The Medium Route is not competitive. Riders are chip timed start-to-finish, however the finish times are listed alphabetically by the rider’s last name.
