——————————————————————————————————-

How Grand Prix scoring will operate:

– Participants will be split into age categories such as, senior, vet, super vet & vintage.
– Points are allocated based on your finishing position in your age category against other M3 competitors in the same age category
– Points decrease from first place by 1 point per position. First place in your Age Cat gets you 20 points
– If people from the same Category are doing different races (e.g. East fife Novice or East Fife sprint) then the Triathlon Scotland rankings method will be used to determine finishing order for that category (You do not need to be a triathlon Scotland member)

Rules

  • To qualify, you must be an M3 member and race with M3 as your club
  • Competitors need to complete 6 events to qualify in the series

Happy Racing!
