With the XL Catlin Bermuda National Olympic Distance Championship event taking place this weekend Sunday June 10th, the Bermuda Triathlon Association (BTA) is excited to announce that the Bermuda races this year are to be made into a race series, WTS-style.
The series will be made up of the XL Catlin event, as well as the Tokio, Aon, Bank of Bermuda and Home Event races to find the overall Bermuda Triathlon Series Champion.
The aim is for this to become a prestigious award to encourage participation and excellence over the whole season, and accordingly there will be some great prizes on offer for the Series winners, to be awarded at the end-of-season dinner.
Prizes will be awarded to the overall winner in the Menís and Womenís categories, together with winners in each of the usual age groups. As in the individual races, those winning overall prizes will not be eligible also to win their age groups.
How will the points system work? Points will be given to the top 30 individual finishers in each race. Points will also be awarded for the Age Group categories to the top 10 individuals finishing in each Age Group.
Points will also be awarded for those racing in the Home Events, so there is ample opportunity to pick up points!
The Age Group category is separate from the Overall category. Home Event points count towards the Overall category only.
