Club Championships Races 2017
Every year the club runs a championship scoring system and the trophy is presented at the annual awards dinner. Previous winners have been Jack Peasgood (3 times), Phil Doel (3 times) and Andy Bryant (twice).
A number of local races are nominated as being Club Championship races and results from BTF qualifier races and Ironman / Half Ironman distance races count automatically.
If you are focussing on a particular race you can substitute one race in place of another one on the list but it must be notified in advance. The scoring is based on an average of both your performance overall and in your age group and is compared to the result of the finisher 40% of the way down the field. And the result is in comparison to your own gender.
Additional weightings are given to the longer distances and also to BTF qualifier events to allow for the fact that the longer the race the more time is invested in training and also the higher quality fields usually found at qualifier races.
This year’s nominated races are listed below. Why not sign up for these now, race head to head with your clubmates, and see if you can be 2017’s club champion ?
