The club holds an annual league, allowing members to compete for the league trophies at the end of the season.
Each year we run an Open and Novice League each for men and women:
- The Open Leagues are open to all members;
- The Novice Leagues are open to members competing in their first or second year in triathlon. If in their second year they must not have competed in more than two races in their first year.
Each year, a number of races of various distances are chosen for inclusion in the League. Members are required to race in at least three races in order to be included in the league with their best 3 results counting towards their final score. In the event of anyone not completing three of the races listed they will be able to nominate one ‘wildcard’ race.
Scores are calculated in comparison with others racing in the same age group so everyone has a chance of winning. A list of this year’s races is below.
- All participants must be fully paid up members of Burntwood Triathlon Club.
- Participants must compete as ‘Burntwood Triathlon Club’ and appear in the race results as such.
- You can enter as many races as you like. Your best 3 results will count. In the event of a tie, your 4th result will count.
- Scores will be calculated by dividing your finishing time by the winning time in you age group. The lowest score at the end of the year will win. Men and women will compete separately.
Each year we also nominate one Sprint and one Olympic distance race as the Club races where the best scoring members (male and female) will each win a small trophy. We try to get as many members as possible to this race and make it a bit more of a social occasion. This year’s Club races will be the Derby Triathlon (sprint) and the BRAT Birmingham Tri (Olympic).
In addition to this the ‘Darren Hale Memorial’ trophy will be presented to the best scoring member in the Blithfield Triathlon (Olympic distance).
Midlands Triathlon League – This year there will be a new Midlands Triathlon League (MTL). The races in this league will be a mixture of aquathlons, duathlons and triathlons. There will be prizes for the best Club and for individual men and women in the BTF age groups. The full race list has yet to be confirmed but those already known are indicated in the list below.
What to do now:
Paul Butler is in charge of the League this year. He can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org or see him at swimming. If you plan to take part in a League race, or have already raced, please let Paul know. It will help him a lot if you can let him know your finishing time and, ideally, the finishing time of the winner of your age group.
