TESE Senior Series 2018
Date Published: November 2017
We are pleased to announce details for the Triathlon England South East (TESE) Region Club Senior Series for 2018. This follows the same format as the successful 2016 and 2017 Senior Series, but with five new events plus Southwater Relays. The 2018 Senior Series will comprise one duathlon, two pool sprint triathlons, one open water sprint triathlon, one open water standard distance triathlon and one relay event, from around the region and spread throughout the season from April to September.
The Senior Series comprises four team competitions and consists of 6 events from around the South East region, with the best club team score from 3 events counting, except the ‘mob’ competition where all six events count. More than ever it is about taking part and representing your local club over a few talented individuals dominating events.
The events are:
What’s on offer?

A trophy for the club with the best female team
A trophy for the club with the best male team

A trophy for the club who has the best ‘mob’ attendance.
How does my club enter the Senior Series?
All TESE affiliated clubs can enter the Senior Series by registering at https://goo.gl/forms/tO4d4T4N6kMVgByx2
A list of all the clubs registered will be available.
There is no registration fee. Please nominate a club co-ordinator when registering your club and please encourage your triathletes to wear club team kit when racing in the Senior Series, to promote and advertise TESE clubs.
How do individual club members enter the races in the Senior Series?
Members from each club must enter the races as individuals under their club name and pay their own entry fee. Please enter events early to avoid disappointment when they sell-out. Please take care to enter the correct event, as some have more than one distance on offer.
If the club name is not included so it appears on the results, no time will be recorded towards the Senior Series. Please ensure your entry includes your club details before the event. There will be no opportunity to retrospectively add your club after the event and there is no right of appeal if your club name is not shown on the results. Triathletes must be paid up club members and can only race for one TESE Club in any calendar year.
There are four team competitions; female, male, mixed and Mob match.
Female: The first three female triathletes from each club to finish an event count for their club’s score.
Male: The first three male triathletes from each club to finish an event count for their club’s score.
Mixed Team: The first three female and first three males triathletes to finish an event count for their club’s score. Note that individuals can count for both the mixed team and the single gender team competitions at any event.
NOTE: The scoring for the Southwater Relay will be based on the time of the first relay team for the ‘male’ and ‘female’ competitions and the first male/first female relay teams combined time for the ‘mixed’ competition.
Mob Match: There will be a ‘Mob Match’ competition for the club with the highest aggregate participation in the Senior Series.
What is the scoring system for the Female, Male and Mixed team series?
For the Female, Male and Mixed competitions, the individual event winner picks up 1 point, the 2nd placed athlete 2 points, etc for the whole race.
Total points from the three highest placed triathletes gives total points score for the team. The total points for the mixed team is made up from the highest placed three females and the highest placed three males.
As a result, the winning teams will have the lowest scores.
Points towards each competition in the Senior Series will be awarded to clubs with the first place team, (scoring the lowest points for the event) 50 points, second place 40 points, and so on as follows:
First : 50 Sixth : 20
Second : 40 Seventh : 18
Third : 32 Eighth : 16
Forth : 26 Ninth : 14
Fifth : 22 Tenth : 12
Eleventh and below all score 10 points.
In the event of a tie on points at the end of the Senior Series for any team competition, the winner will be the lowest aggregate points of the first three scoring triathletes for the female or male competitions (or first three female and first three male in case of a mixed tie), for each clubs best three results.
What is the scoring system for the Mob competition?
Each triathlete completing any of the six events will score one point and the Mob club winner will be the club with the highest aggregate score.

Senior Series and Mob Match rankings will appear on TESE website following each event.
