By competing in nominated events you qualify for the Club Championships and could win a share in over $2000 in prizes from our sponsors! However, you must be a financial member at the time of the event for Club Championship points to be awarded.
Your total points for the season are calculated from your best five triathlons, two/three long course triathlons, three duathlons, or three open water swim races respectively, and any bonus points earned.
Specific qualifying conditions exist for each Club Championship and are explained further below.
Generally, points are scored at each race by dividing the winner’s time in your age group by your time. For example, if you finished a sprint triathlon in 58:26 and the winner did 56:10, your points score will be 961 (being 3370 for the winner’s time in seconds and 3506 for your time in seconds x 1000). Also, points scored from smaller series/races may be multiplied by .75 to recognise weaker fields
We support the Club Championships by making the club marquee, free massages, food, drinks and other services available at the nominated Club Championship races. At the end of the season, we host a Club Championships event. It’s always a fun occasion and a great chance to let your hair down.
We encourage you to actively support the club. One easy way to do this is to wear the YarraTri trisuit at Club Championship events, as in doing so you help advertise the club by being a visible ambassador.
To reward your support, during the 2019/2020 Triathlon and 2019 Duathlon seasons, any member racing a Club Championship event in a current YarraTri trisuit will be rewarded a bonus 50 points for the event. How easy is that!
