There will be prizes given out in each 5yr age-group category and these will be presented by a member of the regional committee. The prizes are for Triathlon England members only who are also North East Region members. 


North East Grand Prix

Due to their being 32 events registered for the 2020 season there will be a split in the Grand Prix. There will be a Triathlon GP and a Multi Sport GP. 

Triathlon GP

Five races from the 24 events listed below, at least one should be Open Water. 

The 2020 Adult Triathlon Grand Prix races are as follows;

Multi Sport GP 

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

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 winning time by the 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

Age Categories

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.

Another exciting year of races ahead for the North East, Good Luck!
