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, one or two 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.
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 having the club marquee at these events in which most of our members compete. At the end of the season, we host a Club Championships Presentation night where the trophies and prizes are handed out. 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 tri-suit at Club Championship events, as in doing so you help advertise the club by being a visible ambassador.
To reward your support, during the 2021/2022 season, any member racing a Club Championship event in a current YarraTri tri-suit will be rewarded a bonus 50 points for the event. How easy is that!
This years YarraTri Triathlon Club Championships will be decided from your best 4 results on the 2XU Triathlon Series, plus any other races that appear on the National Series.
You can also gain bonus points in the following ways
*50 bonus points per race for wearing the YarraTri race suit
