3)      The best 2 of 3 events will count towards the series total.

4)      You must complete at least 2 of the race series and be a club member to qualify for places at the end of the series.

5)           Age Grades for club champs will be based on your age as at the 4 September 2016 (for the whole series).

6)           In each event there will be only gender divisions (not age divisions as in the past)

a.        Long triathlon & Long Duathlon (Female & Male)

b.       Medium triathlon & Medium Duathlon (Female & Male)

c.        Short triathlon & Short Duathlon (Female & Male)

7)      The order of events is:- Triathlon – run, cycle, swim; Duathlon – run, cycle, run. If people choose to race a different variation of a course (eg run, swim or cycle in a different order) this is okay but they will not be included in the series results.

8)      Results will be updated on the club web site after each race in the series.

9)      Points for the races will be awarded in each “length” race based on finishing time compared to the 30th percentile athlete in that course. That person will get 100 points everyone else’s points will be based as a fraction percentage of that. This means the faster you go the more points you get – rather than just your position.

10)   If a person DNF’s (eg flat tyre; injury etc) or is DSQ’d they will get 0 points for that event.

11)   If a person fails to complete the correct number of laps (in running, cycling or swimming) this will count as a DSQ with zero points.

12)   The decision on DSQ’s will be made by the race director or a sub-committee and the competitor will be notified by email or phone or in person if they are to be DSQ’d – with the right of appeal.
