Individuals pay their own entry fee for each event.
YOU MUST BE A PAID UP MEMBER OF YOUR TRIATHLON CLUB TO BE ELEGIBLE TO SCORE POINTS FOR YOUR TEAM, and can only race for one London Club in any calendar year.
How does my club score League points?
Each club's best FOUR team results in the series will count towards their final points score and must include one triathlon.
There are three team competitions, male, female and mixed teams.
Male: The first three triathletes from each club to finish count for a maximum score. Two scoring triathletes will also count but the team won't be able to score maxium points. Teams with three finishers will be ranked in order then the teams with two finishers will then be ranked below the teams of three scorers.
Female: The first three triathletes from each club to finish count for a maximum score. Two scoring triathletes will also count but the team won't be able to score maxium points. Teams with three finishers will be ranked in order then the teams with two finishers will then be ranked below the teams of three scorers.
Mixed Team: The first three male and first three females to finish count. Note that you can count for both the mixed team and the single gender team. Teams with less than five triathletes (3 males and 2 females) do not score
Alongside the League there will be a "Mob Match" prize for clubs with the highest participation in League events.
What is the scoring system?
For the Club League scores, the race winner picks up 1 point, 2nd placed athlete 2 points, etc for the whole race.
Total points from the three highest placed triathletes gives total points score for the team (male and female). The total points from the mixed team is made up from the highest placed three males and the highest placed three females.
The winning team (with the lowest points) from each race is then awarded 100 points, 2nd place 99 points, 3rd place 98 points, etc in the league rankings for that race.
In the event of a tie on points, we will look at each club's mob match score in the series to act as a tie-breaker. If points are still equal then we will look at each club's fifth race score in the series, and if necessary sixth, then seventh and eighth.
Mob match points are calculated with every particpant finishing, scoring one point for their team in the overall score.
Each club's total points for ALL club finishers in the race will be totalled and the highest scoring club in each race is than awarded 100 points, 2nd place 99 points, 3rd place 98 points, etc in the Mob Match rankings for that race.
League and Mob Match rankings will appear on this website following each event.
Age group competition
Again for 2018 the very popular age group competition. This is across all age groups, the age groups as defined by Triathlon England, ie. 25-29, 30-34 year etc. (Age on 31st December 2018).
Triathletes in each age group will score points with the same scoring system as the Team competitions. The race winner picks up 1 point, 2nd placed athlete 2 points, etc for the whole race.
The best FOUR events to count,( one must be a triathlon), and the overall place you finish in determines the points scored. The lowest points total wins.
An open category Paratriathlon League.
In addition to scoring in the other competitions there will be one point awarded for every Para Tri competitor with a league event finish. The male and female athlete with the most points wins the Para Tri League.
For 2019 :- Again this year London Paratriathletes who complete the course at The Arctic One triathlon on Monday 27th May at Eton, Dorney Lake will again score double points to count toward the Paratri competition in the League.
