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 (email@example.com) to register for the series.
Each year a squad of 3 boys and 3 girls from Tristar 2 & Tristar 3 (plus a reserve in each Age-Group) 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.
