During the year the club runs the Tri2O Club Championship for members. The aim of the competition is to not only maximise involvement but also get everyone’s race achievements heard and spoken about.
The format for 2021 isn’t going to follow a predetermined set of chosen events but instead we are going to allow all events you compete in to be used towards the competition. There will be awards for Sprint, Standard, Middle Distance and Full Distance races plus a multisport category for Swim/Run, Duathlon or any other combination!
Any events you’re already completed this year or plan to complete can be counted. Happy days!
The scoring will follow a similar format to that used by British Triathlon for International or European qualification events.
For example :
Your “score” for a race is your time as a percentage of the winning time in your age category (if you win it would be 100%) Please note that your lowest percentage, i.e. best race result relative to your age category, will be taken in deciding who the winners are for each type of race. The age categories will be decided by the race organisers and will not necessarily be the 5-year ranges applied by British Triathlon.
After competing in a race in one of the above categories please add your time and the time of the winner in the age category you were competing in to the Club Champs spreadsheet https://tinyurl.com/Tri2O-Club-Champ-2021
The final cut-off date to submit results will be 31st October 2021
Winter Running Series
This year we are running the winter run series, with an improved scoring system with
the results classified into age bands of <40, 40-55 and 55+ to give as many members
as possible an opportunity to be competitive. Primarily i t gives an opportunity to chase
down some club mates, support others and hopefully enjoy a social coffee/cake/bacon
bap after. There are distances to cover all preferences from 5km parkruns to a marathon
round Mapledurham. Hopefully, we will have a few more races in 2022 which will be
announced as races confirm they are open for entries.
You can enter as many races as you like. The total score will be based on your best six results.

For each event, the age grading will be calculated for your run. The age-grade will then be
ranked within the Club. Where there are multiple distances at the same event, these will be
ranked together as the age grading will account for the distances as well as the ages.
Points will be awarded as below
The total score will be based on your best 6 results, or the number you have entered i f less
than 6, with a maximum of 3 parkruns.
To make sure we do not disappoint you by missing any of your hard-earned results we will
have a form for you to submit your results https://forms.gle/hkEfqFBXPzPWwdW4A
