Cambridge Triathlon Club Championships 2019

For 2019 the aims of the Club Championships are;

  1.  To encourage competition; either between Club members or against your age group peers outside the Club
  2.  To offer opportunities for Club members, their families and friends, to meet socially


To achieve these aims the Championships have been simplified.  The will be fewer nominated races, however, each event has been chosen as a range of distances or formats are available.  There is also the option of playing a Joker.

Race Points
Points will be achieved based upon your position relevant to your age-group winner at the same distance.  For example; if you are a 47 year old male, doing an Olympic distance triathlon at St Neots, you will earn points on the basis of your finishing time compared to the male winner of the 45-50 age group at Olympic distance.  At the same event, if you are a 27 year old female, doing a Sprint distance triathlon, you will earn points on the basis of your finishing time compared to the female winner of the 25-30 age group at Sprint distance.  The age groupings will be those applied by the race organiser.

On the start line you will have 10,000 points.  If your finish time is 90% of the winner’s time you will get 9,000 points.

Scoring

  • Triathlon;  all four events to count or 3 plus a Joker
  • Swim;  all three events to count or 2 plus a Joker
  • Bike:  all three events to count or 2 plus a Joker
  • Run;  best 4 to count, or best 3 plus a Joker
  • Joker - a race you have entered and notified to the Club Captain at least 2 weeks in advance of the race.  Points will be awarded as above.


Jokers
You can choose any race format at any distance.  Duathlon and Aquabike can be counted for Triathlon points.  SwimRun events, such as Otillo, can be counted for Swim points.  Cycling sportives that use chip timing, or TTs with published results, can be counted towards Bike points.  A Joker race result can only be used once to count towards one discipline.

Example;  Race 3 of the Club Championship Triathlon Races at various distances and use your Ironman as a Joker event

Joker races must take place between 1st February 2019 and 31st October 2019.

Tip – please ensure, wherever possible, you complete the Club box when entering events.

Socialising
At each of the nominated Championship events the Club gazebo and a couple of flags will be in attendance.  These will be used as a gathering point and a place to leave your bags / excess kit.  We would like to encourage you, your family and friends, to be at the site for the start of the first event of the day and to stay for as long as possible.  Bringing food and refreshments to share is actively encouraged, along with wearing Club kit.

There will be an Event on the Members Only Club Facebook page for each event.  It would be great if you could show yourself as ‘going’ when you have entered a race, or are attending as a cheerleader.  Not only will this help to encourage others to go but may also be an opportunity to help each other out with logistics.

The small print.  The Club Captain’s decision in relation to any aspect of the Club Championships is final.
