How are points calculated?
The East Junior Race Series is governed by the East Triathlon Regional Committee. All races are sanctioned by British Triathlon and therefore competitors and spectators must abide by the rules of the British Triathlon.
Points are calculated based on the winning time with the winner receiving 1000 points. Subsequent results are calculated by dividing the winning time by the recorded time for all other athletes and multiplying the result by 1000 (eg winner in 18mins gets 1000pts, 2nd place finishes in 18 minutes 36. 18 mins divided by 18mins 36 * 1000 = 968 and therefore the 2nd place finisher would would receive 968 points for that race).
If a race is cancelled or is deemed not to have met the level of quality that we require from a race then the committee have the right to amend the number of points scored by the winner and the number of qualifying races to count in the series.
A national initiative in which each region pits its best 16 tristars (categories Tristar 2 and 3, with 4 boys and girls from each) against the other regions for the honour of the region being called the Inter Regional Champions.
Selection of the East team is based on best performances in 3 qualifying events that are part of the East Regional Race Series.
