Is there an Age minimum for Half IM?
Quote | Reply
I mainly race draft-legal sprint triathlons, but I have completed 2 Olympic ones in the past. I was thinking of challenging myself a bit more with a half (minus the run, cuz that's overkill for my knees/age).

1900 Meters is very short, and I'm hoping I can use that as a warmup. I can manage around 25-28 minutes, but would that be too fast and leave my tired for the bike?

The bike (90k right?) I'm hoping to manage around the 2:50-3:00 hours. I've done some rides around 100k, but they've all been with my team drafting, so that's what I'm a little worried about.

I'm not planning on doing the run because that's just... how do I put it, too hard =P

Half a marathon is too much for me, but I was hoping of doing the swim/bike in around 3:15-3:30, and I was wondering if I can do that in an orginzed Half IM, or do I have to do it on my own?

If you can find someone to do the run some Half IM's allow for relay teams. don't know about an age limit for a Half IM you'd have to check with the race director. I know Full iron distance races don't allow anyone under 18. good luck and have fun

It depends where you are located.

In ontario (canada), the minimum age for most races over oly length is 19. In alberta, i think its 18 (age of majority in both provices).

Ask the race director if there is a minimum age, and then ask if it still applies to a relay team.
