Rules of the Competition

There will be two age group categories, 40 years of age and over (Masters Division) and under 40 years of age (Age Group Division) as of December 31st, 2015.  The female and male in each category will be recognized as Series Champion at Triathlon Ontario’s year-end awards banquet.

Points are earned by finishing within the top 20 in your age group.  Points are awarded for finishing position within your age group against the entire field in your age group (not just against other members).  Athletes can compete in as many or as little events as they wish but only the best three results will count toward the final total.

After each race Triathlon Ontario will publicize the standings updated standings.

Athletes must race in their proper age groups to ensure the results are ranked properly in order to be included.
