The 2019 NYC Triathlon was just cancelled due to an impending heat wave. Is this the first time?
Has the NYC Triathlon ever been cancelled in its entire history?
In relatively recent years the NYC Marathon was cancelled for the very first time in its entire history (due to Hurricane Sandy)..
I once heard that the NYC Triathlon was modified because the water quality of the Hudson river was found to be unhealthy at the time of the event so the participants just had to do the biking and running part of the course, but not the swimming part.

This triathlon started in 2001, is cancelled for 2019 due to 98 or 99 degrees F forecast at 55% to 65% humidity could have heat index over 120F. The 2003 one shows a 5K run, 10K run, and 40K bike with no swim.
Swim planned in some way
