HOW POINTS ARE EARNED
YOU MUST COMPLETE 5 OUT OF 11 SERIES EVENTS
Triangle Orthopaedic and/or Rex Wellness Triathlon Series Races
Below is the official POINTS scoring system for 2016. Ahtletes are still required to do a minimum of 5 races to officially qualify.
To determine a baseline, we calculate the average time of the middle 80% of participants.
We then compare each individual's time to the average time by dividing average time / indvidual time and multiply by 100.
The overall average time athlete of the middle 80% gets a score of 100.
your score will be > 100 if you are faster than the average overall of the 80%
your score will be < 100 if you are slower than the average overall of the 80%.
If you are Top 3 Overall you are excluded from the Top 3 Age Group. If you are not in the Top 3 but Top 4, you will be 1st place in your age group. You must race Clydesdale or Athena the entire series!
