The New York University Abu Dhabi Indoor Triathlon returns on Saturday 6th May for an exciting format like no other offered here in the UAE.

Net Zero Now is a university-wide initiative to envision our sustainable future when NYUAD plans to be climate neutral. NetZero Now is a celebration and call to action for what NYUAD can do to confront the climate crisis.

NYUAD presents its third Indoor Triathlon this academic year to highlight the importance and shared responsibility we have in the sports industry towards minimising the negative impacts human activity has caused the planet Earth. As once of the fastest growing sports in the world the governing body of Triathlon, World Triathlon, has joined two international initiatives: UN Climate Change Sports for Climate Action movement and the United Nations Environment Program Clean Seas Campaign. 


Swim 350m in an open water style pool swim, exit through your dry off transition area before jumping on one of WOLFI'S Bikes that will be set up on a Wahoo Kickr (mechanics on hand to help set you up pre-race for seat height adjustment). Hit your MYWHOOSH bike segment for an absolute THRESHOLD 5km all out effort. Then pass through bike off into T2, pull on your joggers, and head to the 200m Indoor Track for a 1,100m run to the finish.

Then back in the pool for another 350m swim, then back to the bike for another 5km effort and then finally pulling on your joggers and head to the 200m Indoor Track for a 1,100m run to the finish.


For the juniors we will start the morning with a 'KIDS' Aquathlon offering the u/8's, u/11's and u/13's the chance to race your friends with a pool swim ranging from 50m to 150m before heading to the Indoor Track for a 300m - 500m dash.


It may sound like a gentle run BUT, on leaving the pool deck you exit via the fire stairs (4 flights) out of the building and then another rocky type 2 levels of stairs before entering the indoor running track for your final run to the finish line in air conditioned comfort.
