This Kids Triathlon is a fantastic opportunity for your child to participate in an enjoyable athletic event that promotes a healthy lifestyle, provides a chance to meet new friends and builds self-confidence. The event is perfect for experienced racers and first time triathletes alike. The courses and distances will be achievable for all athletes, and prizes will be given to top age group winners. Each child will receive a custom medal when they cross the finish line. Course map coming soon.
HMF requires 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.
Athletes without a USAT membership will be required to purchase a one-day pass, available during Chronotrack registration, and also at packet pickup.
Participate as an Individual
Participate as an individual triathlete and crush your very own personal challenge while supporting a great cause!
Participate as a Relay Team
Gather together a swimmer, biker and runner and compete as a relay team; each completing 1-2 of the event legs! Relay teams can be comprised of 2 or 3 members. Each team is responsible for ensuring all member’s registrations are complete. 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 must create their team before their relay member(s) can register. Or the captain can register all team members at time of team creation.
Aquabike athletes will complete the swim and the bike, but will not have to do the run. The series is designed to appeal to those athletes for whom running might be painful, or to injured athletes who still want to compete.
We do offer a race fee discount to First Responders, who will need to show work ID at packet pickup.
We do offer students, up to the age of 22, a discount on their race fee. Students will need to show school ID at packet pickup.
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.
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.
Online registration will close on Tuesday, June 18 at 10 a.m. After that date, there will be no additional online registration. There will be in-person registration at Packet Pick-up, Saturday and Sunday of the event weekend.
