The Only Series Where You Get A Custom Podium Award!

We are continuing our tradition of being the only race series that offers a Custom Podium Award Photo. Award categories and prizing details are listed below.

Four Age Group Series Award Categories

Olympic Triathlon, Sprint Triathlon, Give-It-A-Tri and Duathlon

Age Group Series awards will be presented to the top three men & women in each of:

  • Olympic/Long Course Triathlon (best 3 races)
  • Triathlon/Sprint Triathlon (best 3 races)
  • Give-It-A-Tri (best 3 races)
  • Duathlon (best 3 races)

The awards will be given to those athletes who have accumulated the most points based on the following criteria:

  • The total points will be tracked based on your three (3) best races. i.e. If you compete in six (6) races only the best three (3) races will be used for the Series Age Group Award.
  • Points will be awarded based on race day results.
  • The athlete with the most total points based on their best races will be deemed the Series Champion for that Age Group.

The Top 3 athletes in each Age Group will receive a Series Award. (While in some cases the race day awards might be given in 10 year increments, the Season Awards will be in 5 year increments.)

TIE BREAKER – Criteria to break a tie for any Series Awards in an individual age group

  • The best three races count towards the Series Awards in an individual age group, however if there is a POINTS tie leading into the final weekend we will use the following criteria:
  • Total times for the races in which both athletes competed head-to-head.
  • If athletes did not race head-to-head at any race then the Tie Breaker race will be in Lakeside. (If this race is sold out room will be made for any athlete involved in a Tie Breaker).
  • The athlete awarded the most points at Lakeside will be declared the Series Champion for the respective age group.

Our year end awards day are typically held in early November.
