The goals of the Championship series are to have fun, get your summer tan going and to participate in all of the events our sport community offers alongside your fellow team members.
SB Tri Club has designated 13 different events throughout the year. Events span the range from swimming, biking, running and triathlon.
Official (sort of) Rules
Participate in as many of the different events as you choose. At the end of the year, we will tally your top six scores. Scoring will be as follows, based on your age group results for that race:
- 100 points for 1st place
- 90 points for 2nd place
- 80 points for 3rd place
- 65 points for participating
There are three divisions:
- Youth (under age 40)
- Masters (40-54)
- Seniors (55+)
We'll keep age consistent with triathlon rules - age is based on how old you will be as of December 31, 2020.
Scoring example: Bill, John and Fred all race Lake San Antonio Triathlon. Bill raced M60-64, John races M65-69, and Fred races M70-74. Each wins his age division. Each is awarded 100 points.
Ties will be broken as follows:
- Participation - Bill and Fred tie with 600 points each. Bill participated in 10 events, Fred in 8. Bill wins the tie-breaker.
- Total Points - Christine and Amy tie with 600 points each and both participated in 8 events. Amy's total points (not just her top 6) were 780, whereas Christine's total points were 770. Amy wins the tie-breaker.
At our end-of-the-year party we will award a Men's and Women's Champion in each of the three divisions.
