If you are between 14 and 15 years of age, you may do the run or bike portions as a relay team member. The Navigators Stamford KIC IT Triathlon follows 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, 20k (12.4 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.

Triathlon Club Cup Challenge

Is your triathlon club the best? When registering, reference your triathlon club (if your club is not listed, please list it). Triathlon club members from both the Olympic and Sprint races will count toward the Triathlon Club Cup.

Gear Information

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.

Swim Protocol

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.
