YarraTri Duathlon Championships

With less races in the Victorian Duathlon Series this season we have expanded the range of our club championships so more people can take part, whilst still recognising the races with tougher fields
For the 2017 Championships your championships position will be decided by your best three races as usual
They can be from any duathlon including off road from 1st July onwards until 1st October
To recognise stronger fields there will be 50 bonus points per race at the Victorian Duathlon series, National Selection races and World Championships
The 50 point bonus for racing in club uniform will also continue as usual.
