The 2020 Wakefield Triathlon Club Summer Series programme of training events and dates is now available, all events are now loaded into the calendar below, there’s also a pdf copy in the Vault which you can download, print and stick on your fridge to help you plan your summer.
Events include aquabike, aquathlon, duathlon, triathlon, runs, rides and swims of varying distances. All events are suitable for EVERYONE regardless of ability. If you’ve never taken part in a club event before then you’re in for a treat, the support is incredible.
CHAMPIONSHIP EVENTS – These are the same as last year, Tadcaster Sprint, Ripon Standard, Outlaw Full and Sundowner Middle. Check out your Membership letter or Renewal letter for discount codes for some of these events.
SCORING –The winner of each Summer Series event will be awarded 50 points, 2nd place 49 points, 3rd place 48 points and so on down to 50th and all subsequent places 1 point. This year we shall record male and female points separately which should give a fairer reflection of how well female athletes are doing.
There’s a slight change in the final scoring this year, your BEST 8 EVENTS will be counted in the final results, however to qualify for a prize you must have completed a minimum of 8 events, if you’ve completed more events then your best 8 events plus any volunteering points accumulated will be counted.
There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd Male and Female, Age Group Winners, Most Improved Triathlete and the odd ‘random’ category. All prizes are awarded at the annual Awards Evening in November.
As always none of this can happen without YOU, we need you to volunteer to marshal, time, set up transition etc. Volunteering will earn 10 points for the first event, then 8, 6, 4, and 2 for subsequent events. To appear in the final results you must have volunteered at least once but the points can come from volunteering in either the Summer or Ladies series. Volunteering at OWS or external events won’t earn you points however you will gain the respect and admiration of your fellow athletes.
