3 leagues – The Grand Prix The Leveler and the nOOb
How it all works
The Grand Prix
The Highest score wins just to keep it simple – your score will be worked out like this: Your position, divided by the amount of people in the race. That number is subtracted from 1.
eg I come 30th in SunCityTri which had 126 people in it = 30/126 = 24 – scores 0.76 points.
This way, every race counts* no matter how big or where it is – if I know you did it – it counts. Your BEST 5 results count.
The leveler is exactly the same, but you have a handicap to start with. This is calculated by taking your average score from the maximum 1 point and multiplying it by 5. If everyone raced exactly the same as last year, they would all finish on 5!! – this levels the playing field, the most improved athlete will win. If you raced twice or more last season, your handicap is below
nOObs – For those people who have never completed a Triathlon before, except beginner events.
I don’t expect nOObs to race 5 races – so simply your best score wins, that way if you get better – your poorer scores will not hold you back.
The Highest score wins the Grand Prix, Leveler or nOOb league, male and female, and will be presented with a prize at the end of season party. I will allow 1 duathlon or aquathon (your best result) IM events score double (by halving the finishing position) – this keeps scoring consistent with other events. *Beginner or fun, eg Tri a Tri events do not count. For your score to count – you must race for SUNCITYTRI and be a member of the club. Please ensure you do this when you enter races.
