As a sprint triathlon event, the distances are 525 yds of swimming (21 lengths in the pool), 9 miles of on-road biking (two times around the Griffin Road loop and 5k of cross-country running (the cross-country course).

The entire event takes place on the Hamilton campus and surrounding roads. HamTrek  starts in the Bristol Pool and finishes in the field behind the fitness center.

Participants are encouraged to collect donations to benefit the Shawn Grady Memorial Fund. The Fund, a non-profit/tax exempt organization devoted to helping local families who have children with life-threatening illnesses, was established in memory of Shawn Grady, an outstanding athlete who was diagnosed with cancer in the fall of his sophomore year. http://www.shawngradyfund.org
