How are points calculated?
The South Central Junior Race Series is governed by the South Central 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 across all multisport formats in the series (Triathlon, Aquathlon and Duathlon). 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.
(*The winner is defined as the first South Central Athlete that is a member of British Triathlon, male and female over the line in each age category.)
