Results

All of our events are open to members and non-members alike (although there are obviously some age and gender restrictions for our kids' tri series and our ladies only triathlon). However, club champs for our Summer Triathlon Series and our Winter Duathlon series are only open to club members (although anyone else may still participate in the events they will just not be eligible for trophies).

This points system for our summer series and winter series is open to all competitors regardless of whether or not they are club members or non-members. 

The rules for both points systems are outlined below:
