Current Standings

How are points calculated?

The London Junior Race Series is governed by the London 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 first London finisher's time with this athlete receiving 1000 points (occasionally a non-London athletes may win a London series events, but for the league purposes we ignore any such athlete and award the first London finisher 1000 points and calculate all points based on the time achieved by the first London finisher). 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 seconds. 18 mins divided by 18mins 36 seconds * 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 all athletes and may amend the number of qualifying races to count in the series.
