Participants in the Olympic event
will brave the Long Island Sound for a .9-mile swim, quickly mount their bikes for a 24.8-mile ride through North Stamford, and then will run through the streets of downtown Stamford to complete the 6.2-mile run.
The Sprint will be contested on portions of the Navigators Stamford KIC IT Olympic Triathlon, held the same day. This course promises to be fast, challenging, and fun!
This USAT-sanctioned race starts with the 0.8k (0.5 mile) swim taking place at Cummings Beach in Stamford. It will follow the same (but shorter) pattern of the Olympic Triathlon swim in the Long Island Sound.
The 22k (13.9 mile) bike course will feature the beauty of backcountry Stamford along with the excitement of downtown.
The 5.1k (3.2 mile) run will be a speedy jaunt throughout the city, and will have aid stations available.
