North West Junior Series Scores

The North West Junior Triathlon Series 2015 draft scores after the final race of the season at Salt Ayre can be found by clicking  HERE.

The results will remain in draft format until 26th September when they will be classified as final. Anyone that has queries with the results should e-mail me immediately at rolf.cooley@talktalk.net

If anyone has any suggestions about things to include or change in the 2016 Junior Series please let me know by the end of September via e-mail at rolf.cooley@talktalk.net.

As announced at the Club Championships at Salt Ayre, the North West Regions Presentation night has been postponed due to circumstances beyond the control of the North West Committee. Due to the relatively late change in date it is now proving difficult to find a suitable venue before Christmas so the revised date will probably be in January 2016. Please watch this web page for further news on this matter.

The AGM for the North West Regional Committee will take place at the Lancashire Manor Hotel, Pimbo on Thursday 8th October 2015, starting at 7pm. If you have any items you would like to have raised, would like to attend or would be interested in taking on a committee role then please contact me asap.

The agenda for the AGM can be downloaded HERE.

  1. Clubs must register their intention to participate, be affiliated to Triathlon England and be based in the North West Region. Clubs that do not meet this criteria must contact the North West Regions Children's Chair to discuss entry details. (rolf.cooley@talktalk.net)
  2. Clubs must submit a team sheet containing the names and age group of their club members that they have competing for their club at least 6 days prior to the event.

  4. Points will be scored for TriStar Start, T1, T2, T3 and Youth age groups in standard distance races
  5. Only the first 2 competitors for a club in each age group and sex will score points [i.e. will be a points scoring competitor].
  6. The first competitor in each age group and sex will score 100 points. The second competitor in each age group and sex will score 99 points and so on with each and every subsequent points scoring competitor, scoring one point less than the previous points scoring competitor.
  7. Where clubs have only one or no competitors in a particular age group then the “non present” competitors will score points equivalent to being in last place. I.E. if there are 40 scoring children in the event then the 40th placed competitor would score 61 points. Any “non present” competitors, in this example, would score 60 points. This method of scoring will allow any club to enter the competition, even if they only send 1 athlete.
  8. Where clubs are tied on points at the end of the Championship then the highest placed individual will determine which club finishes higher. i.e. if two clubs are tied on points and if the first clubs highest placed individual is 3rd and a second clubs highest placed individual is 6th the former club will be placed higher.
