Since that fateful day in 1977, Dick and Rick, becoming known as “Team Hoyt,” has finished 255 triathlons (6 being Ironman distance and 7 being Half Ironman distance), 22 duathlons, 72 marathons (32 being the Boston Marathon), 95 half marathons, 35 Falmouth 7.1 milers, and a handful of other various distance races. Team Hoyt has a marathon PR of 2:40:47 and half marathon PR of 1:21:12. Dick and Rick are also two of only 27 total members of the Ironman Hall of Fame, carried the Olympic torch in 1996 and in 1992 they ran and rode a bike from Santa Monica, California to Boston Harbor in 45 consecutive days. Team Hoyt has competed in, and finished, more than 1,100 events.
Dick Hoyt & Rick Hoyt continue to do shorter distance races these days, though neither Dick nor Rick are ready for their retirement just yet!
