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
I think most race say 15 years old....

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.
