2021 North West Junior Series Events

We are pleased to announce the upcoming events for this years amended TENW Junior Reboot 2021!

The last 12 months have been very difficult and an unprecedented time for all. With social distancing restrictions still in place and many venues uncertain about hiring, our local clubs who have staged our junior series events for many years are currently not in a position to stage events in 2021.

Due to these difficulties, we have taken the decision that this years series will be non scoring. We will however, be having a  number of signposted events and some fun training days in the region. This will allow junior athletes based in the North West to still compete, train and have fun without the added pressure of a competitive points scoring series. For a full list of events please the table below.

Current Standings

How are points calculated?

The North West Junior Race Series is governed by the North West 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 winning time with the winner receiving 1000 points. 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. 18 mins divided by 18mins 36 * 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 the winner and the number of qualifying races to count in the series.

I live outside the North West or hold a Welsh/Scottish Home Nation membership, can I still compete for point in the Junior Series?

Athletes who are Triathlon England members that have North West as their associated region will automatically be registered for the Junior Series. As a Triathlon England member this is this only way to collect points in the series.

Should you hold a Triathlon Scotland or Welsh Triathlon Junior membership please contact Paul Ekgren, Junior Series Coordinator (paul.ekgren@sky.com) to register for the series.

IRC Qualification

Each year a squad of 4 boys and 4 girls from Tristar 2 & Tristar 3  are selected to represent North West in the Inter Regional Championships. This selection is based on their performances in specific qualifying races.

Full details of the IRC process, together with the date and venue of the IRC's themselves can be found on the IRC selection page.
