New York Triathlon Expo Coming to Citi Field in 2016

The NY TRI EXPO ‘16 is coming to Citi Field on Saturday, March 19, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST. More than 5,000 triathletes, runners, cyclists and swimmers of all levels are expected to attend the expo, which will feature top companies and experts to help them improve their performance during the 2016 season.
“There are lots of great expos out there but they are all affiliated with a race,” Hilary Topper, Expo Producer, Blogger and CEO of HJMT said. “The problem is, when you go to pick up your race number, the last thing you want to do is walk around an expo. You just want to get your number and go home. I’ve participated in many races and I’m so stressed out about the race, the last thing I want to do is talk with vendors. When I started to research these types of events, I realized that there weren't any expos that had an educational component to it, especially in the NY tri-state area. This is where the bulk of the triathletes reside. So, I thought this would be a perfect start to the 2016 season for many of my friends and fellow triathletes."

In addition to an expo that showcases new products and services for athletes, Matt Dixon, former pro-triathlete, elite coach and author of "The Well-Built Triathlete – Turning Potential into Performance” will be the keynote speaker and will help triathletes have the best season ever! Before and after his talk, there will be three concurrent sessions given by industry experts to help newbies and seasoned athletes prepare for future races. Seminars range from “Should I Become a Triathlete” and “The Half and Full Distance Triathlon Experience” to “5 Tips to a Faster Swim Leg” and “How to Run Faster off the Bike.”  Sessions will run all day with panels and solo presenters.
