HMF Age Requirement for Duathlons & Triathlons: Participants must be 16 to participate in the swim portion of the event, at least 14 years of age to participate in the bike portion and at least 12 years of age to do the run portion as a team member. The Hartford Marathon Foundation offers USAT sanctioned duathlons and triathlons and follows the USAT’s rules for “age up” which calculates an athlete’s age based on December 31 in the year he/she was born.
Participate as an Individual
Ready to accomplish a personal challenge for a great cause? The Navigators Stamford KIC IT Triathlon is just the event for you! Take on the Sprint Triathlon by completing all three legs of the triathlon: .5 mile swim, 25k (15.6 mile) bike and 5k (3.1 mile) run.
Participate as a Relay Team
Gather together a swimmer, biker and runner and compete as a relay team! Relay teams can be comprised of 2 or 3 members; each completing 1-2 of the event legs. Team members exchange the timing chip inside the transition area. If you are looking for teammates, post on our Facebook page to find someone!
How to Register as a Relay Team
Relay team captains will create their team. Relay team captains can also register the entire team OR relay team members can register themselves once their relay team captain registers the team.

Neoprene booties are considered part of a wetsuit and would be legal to wear anytime wetsuits are legal. Swim-socks/booties are legal at any temperature as long as they do not provide flotation.
We ask all swimmers (both relay and individuals) to get in a minimum a 10 minute warm up swim prior to the start of the race. This new protocol is intended to give you a proper warm up as well as acclimate your body to the water temperature.
