Club Championship 2023 – Format and Scoring
Welcome to the Club Championship 2023 – We have included 7 races this year (4 x sprint, 2 x standard and 1 x middle) to give members plenty of flexibility in selecting races. We hope the format will attract large numbers of orange and blue to all events throughout the year, particularly with the added incentive of a £500 prize fund to be shared amongst award winners . Good luck and happy training!
- Provide a means of bringing the club members together through having a common focus of friendly competition
- Provide a greater incentive for participating in target races
- Encourage beginners to take their first steps into competition
- Turn up to events on mass wearing the Orange & Blue’ thereby advertising the club and its members
The championship will run from April to October and is open to all members of the triathlon club (i.e. a paid membership to the Triathlon club).
A summary of championship events is shown here Club Championship and Events; full details are contained in the ‘Chippenham Tri Club Championship Events 2023’ spreadsheet (located on Chippenham Triathlon Facebook page under Files). We have tried to find a good mix of local events, both triathlon and duathlon, and one ‘away’ event. Should any event be cancelled we will try and substitute a similar event if it is not too late in the day.
You can choose to enter as many or as few events as you wish, the championship standings will be based on your 5 best scores (4 best triathlons and one best Chippenham Tri duathlon).
You will be responsible for entering the events you choose in the normal way with the organisers. Don’t forget to list your club as “Chippenham Tri”. Take advantage of the discount codes where applicable.
Whilst the Championship Administrators will endeavour to check the results from a qualifying race it is your responsibility to let us know if you qualify for any bonus points from age group position or triathlon debut.
