Senior Series Including Juniors (17-19)Rules

The rules for the 2022 Series.

North West Senior Series competition rules

  • To enter the series, you must be a member of Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland or Welsh Triathlon and registered in North West region (as shown on your race licence).  If not a club member contact the series organiser by email to enter the series and then use "NW Senior Series"
  • Club name must be used when entering the race and must be entered on the timing results sheet. This can include "NW Senior Series" for non-club members.
  • The best 4 scoring races to count.
  • A minimum of 2 scoring races must be completed to be eligible for a prize.
  • All competitors must reside in the North West Region or contact the series organise to declare their intention to participate before the first event.
  • You are only eligible for one regional series which is presumed to be your home region unless you declare otherwise.
  • No registration is required unless you live outside of the North West Region or are members of a Region other than Triathlon England North West. 
  • Race score based on the first NW competitor scoring 1000 points and all others having a score calculated by dividing the first North West competitor time (usually the winner) by the placed competitors time. This is then multiplied by 1000 to give a percentage score between 0 and 1000.
  • There is no financial prize for any award, but series winners will be invited to the end of season awards night.
  • Achievement Award Certificates will be presented to all Junior (17 to 19) that complete 2 points counting races in the Series in recognition for their efforts during the season. Children do not need to be Triathlon England members to receive an Achievement Certificate.
  • In the event of a tie with the best 4 scores at the end of the series, the following rules will apply
    • If available, the ‘next best’ scoring event will count. The competitor with the highest ‘5th best’ scoring event will win. If scores are still tied, then “6th best” scoring events are compared and so on until a winner is found.
    • Head to head times of all common races raced with the winner having the lowest aggregate time. This will include any non-counting events if they were in common
    • If there are no common events (possible if each did the opposite 4 events) then the aggregate of each athlete’s overall race position in the 4 counting events will be calculated (ignoring the age-groups). The athlete with the lowest overall aggregate position will be the winner.
    • If neither method can separate the athletes, then a tie will be declared

 

Senior Series Scoring System

 

  • Best 4 races out of 9 to count with a minimum of 2 races to appear on the series results
  • Same system as the existing Tristarts to Tristars 3 Series with 1000 points for the age group winners and then a calculation based on the percentage of the winner’s time to reduce points for every placing below. This system rewards time rather than placing
  • In the event of a tie then the following rules apply
    • Head to head times of all common races raced with the winner having the lowest aggregate time. This will include any non-counting events if they were in common
    • If there are no common events (possible if each did the opposite 4 events) then the aggregate of each athlete’s overall race position in the 4 counting events will be calculated (ignoring the age-groups). The athlete with the lowest overall aggregate position will be the winner.
    • If neither method can separate the athletes, then a tie will be declared
  • The club competition will be scored as 1 point per athlete racing and 1 point per volunteer marshal. The club with most points at the end of the season will be declared the winner and all 9 events will count.
    • Each club registered as a NW Regional Club by TE is automatically eligible
    • Any member of the club will count whether they are TE members or not. This is a participation competition and as wide a participation as possible is the aim
    • Club Name must be used when entering the race and be listed on the timing result sheet
    • A simple list of numbers of volunteers from each club will be requested from race organisers. Names are not required but will be subject to audit. If this list is not made available, then only athlete numbers will count towards the club competition from that event
    • Each individual can only race and score points for one club in each calendar year (this does not affect the individual series competition).
