Summer SeriesSchedule & Information
A PACKED CALENDAR, A GOOD VARIETY OF EVENTS AND MOSTLY FOR FREE!
The 2017 Wakefield Triathlon Club Summer Series of training events and dates are now available via the links below. There is again, a packed summer of club events to give everyone lots of opportunities to train and compete during the year.
For the uninitiated, the Summer Series is the clubs main series of events that runs throughout the Summer. Competitors earn points based on their finishing positions in the events and awards are given to the athletes that accumulate the most points based on the rules explained at the bottom of this page.
This year there will be 20 events included in the series with the rationale behind the Series being that it should focus on mainstream triathlon-family events – tris, duathlons, aquathons etc. plus swim, bike, run time trials. Also, there should be a roughly equal amount of swimming, running and biking (not in distance, obviously!). The schedule avoids some popular external events.
Note that this year the Club Triathlon Championship Races are not included in the Summer Series totals because these events have their own specific awards.
As always we do ask that you assist in the running of these events, or other club events planned throughout the summer as a volunteer or timekeeper at least once. Eligibility to appear in the final standings is conditional on such public spirited action!

Appearance in the results of the Summer Series is conditional on registering to act, and acting, as a timer and/or marshal for at least one Series event during the summer. Please register your interest on the Volunteer Schedule. Ideally we will have at least 3 volunteers for each event. Helping & marshalling at other club events during the summer, such as the planned Road Race(s), Hill Climb, BBQ, Junior/Senior relays etc will also count for this purpose. Swim spotting alone will not.
Final series standings will be based on the 8 best scoring events for each individual and must include at least one full triathlon (of any distance).
Please allow adequate time (at least 30 minutes) before the start of each event to register, change, set-up etc.
