Frequently asked questions

How many events do I have to do to be part of the series?

A minimum of (3) events is required but you can do up to all (7) events for the most scoring opportunities.

How does the scoring work?

Single Event Scoring

In the example below, the OVERALL sprint triathlon winner at Michigan Titanium (MiTi) had a finish time of 1:21:12, earning a total of 1,000 points.

“Jane Doe” finished her sprint triathlon at MiTi with a finish time of 1:34:36 which was 13:24 behind the overall winner’s time. Jane’s time difference is converted to seconds (804 seconds) and then multiplied by .01. The resulting value of 80.4 is then subtracted from 1,000 (total possible points that can be earned).

Jane’s point total is: 919.6. 

How does the scoring work for multiple events?

Multiple Event Scoring

As we learned in the previous question, “Jane Doe” scored 919.6 points at Michigan Titanium for her Sprint triathlon. Jane previously scored at the following series:

  • Bear Lake Triathlon – Sprint Tri: 906.2 points
  • Grand Rapids Triathlon (Sunday) – Half Duathlon : 500 points (minimum score possible)
  • Ugly Dog Gravel Triathlon – Olympic: 773.1 points

So adding together all of Jane’s scores, her total series points would be: 3,098.9

In this scenerio, Jane would still have an opportunity to score addition series points at The Dirty Mitten Gravel Triathlon in September, increasing her chances on the leaderboard for the series.

How do I find results?

We will link series results website to the main menu of this website. The results site will go live in conjuction with out first 2024 triathlon, Bear Lake Triathlon, in late May.

Are Duathlon & Aquabike events included?
