North East 2020 Senior Grand Prix

Published:

The Senior Grand Prix is back in the North East for 2020.

The scoring system will be the same as previous years so points are calculated based on the winning time, with the winner receiving 100 points. Subsequent results are calculated by dividing the winners time by their recorded time for all other athletes and multiplying the result by 100 (eg. winner - 1hr 18mins = 100pts, 2nd - 1hr 19 minutes 36sec would receive 97.99 points 78 mins divided by 79.6 mins x 100 = 97.99).

To be eligible for prizes at the end of the series, athletes must:

  • Compete as a member of Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland or Welsh Triathlon
  • Reside in the North East or be a member of a North East club

Prizes for the top 3 males and females in each age group will be awarded at the end of the series at the Annual Presentation Event. (Date to be confirmed

There are six age classifications based on year of birth. 

Age for each category are as of 31st December 2020:

-Junior (U20)

-Senior (20-39)

-Vet 40 (40-49)

-Vet 50 (50-59)

-Vet 60 (60-69)

-Vet 70 (70+)

If more than 1 athlete scores the maximum 500 points then the winner will be determined as follows;

i) The sixth best scores will be compared, then 7th etc etc.

ii) if still tied then the cumulative winning margin of the tied athletes’ best 5 scores will be compared.

For the Club Championship the same events and point scoring system will be used as for the athlete GP with the top 5 scores to count from each club regardless of gender or age category.

In the interest of safety and quality control, all races must be permitted by British Triathlon. Any race which fails to attain a permit may be removed from the Series and may be excluded from future years.

Event organisers must forward final race results to the North East Senior GP Coordinator in Excel format within 7 days of the race and MUST include Home Nations membership number, name and D.O.B and club.

Failure to comply may result in exclusion from the the series in future years.

The 2020 Regional Grand Prix for Triathlon and Multi-Sport are now finalised and are as follows:-

Triathlon Grand Prix

As was the case in 2019, athletes will be scored on their 5 best performances 

 

Multi-Sport Grand Prix

Your three (not four as 2020) best scores will count towards your final position.

Multi Sport GP 

Four events to count, meaning you could win this GP without having to swim or run.  This is an exciting opportunity to experience Multi Sport.

There may be at least one more event as not all organisers are in a position to confirm dates.

In addition to the two Grand prix's we are also seeking nominations for the regional championships at Sprint, Standard and Middle Distance triathlons, Duathlon and Aquathlon.

Some nominations have already been received but the final decisions will not be made until the next committee meeting on 14 Jan.

Any queries on the above then please get in touch with the Regional Senior Grand Prix Coordinator, John Howells johnbhowells@sky.com 

Another exciting year of racing ahead for 2020
