Cozumel

Famous all over the world for its coral reefs that are home to 100 species of fish, sea sponges, coral, sea turtles, lobsters and Queen Conch, the island now forms part of the Cozumel National Park. With its beautiful beaches, boutique shops and exquisite cuisine, Cozumel is an ideal vacation destination. During your stay in Cozumel, you get to enjoy breath-taking sunsets, secluded beaches and crystal clear blue waters. Cozumel has been the host of top endurance events for many years and has now become one of the favorite venues for amateurs and professionals alike, due to its beauty and favorable conditions. Cozumel is the seasonal training home for many professional athletes from around the world.

Course

The GFNY Cozumel course provides panoramic views and challenging winds. There are two distances to choose from, the Long Course is 160 kilometers and consists of two loops around the island of Cozumel. The Medium Course is 80 kilometers that circumvents the island of Cozumel once. No matter which course, we promise you will be mesmerized by beautiful beaches and ocean views, plus the support of all the locals who will be out in big numbers to cheer you to the finish line.

 

LONG COURSE IS A COMPETITION: Only the finishers of the long course are eligible for category rankings and Overall and Podium awards. If you want to race and be ranked in your category, you must complete the long course. Top 10% of finishers in each age group earn a spot in the Qualifier Corral at every GFNY World event.

 

MEDIUM COURSE IS NOT A COMPETITION: The riders of the medium course will be provided their start-to-finish time, but will not be ranked by finish time. All finish times will be listed in alphabetical order.

Perks included as part of GFNY Cozumel

 

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

CHIP TIMING: GFNY Cozumel 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 Cozumel 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.

GFNY Kids

GFNY KIDS Cozumel is the chance for children ages 14 and under to be able to experience true GFNY style racing with the same rules and format as all GFNY races. GFNY Kids Cozumel will take place on November 06 at 8 a.m.  All racers will be chip timed from start to finish with the top 3 winners celebrating on the podium for all their family and friends to see.
