TTT Race Series Points
There are a few changes to the points system for 2018!
For this year, we'll be scaling your points based on the distance of your race. A sprint distance race will earn you the base point value. An International/Olympic will earn you double points, 70.3 tripple, and 140.6 quadruple! This primarily applies to additional races you may participate in with our race partners outside of the TTT Race Series races, however it does apply to the Belews International. You also still have an opportunity for double points at the High Point Sprint Triathlon.
We also ramped up our prizes last year, with 8 prizes (Men's 1-3, Women's 1-3, Novice, and Volunteer), and each of those getting a prize as well as a discount on the next years membership. We would like to spread the prizes around some, so we're starting a 3 year limit on eligibility for winning. So if you win any prize, you will not be able to win for the next 2 years. We're hoping that this will encourage more of you to participate in our local races, and will get some recognition to some of our members who always seem to finish *just* outside of the top 3 year after year.

At each TTT Race Series race, we will have the team tent setup and there will be a signup sheet on the table. This is the best way to make sure you get your race series points. If you miss the signup sheet, you can still communicate your participation by email. The race series standings will be updated shortly after each race and posted to the TTT website. It is your responsability to ensure that your race series point total is accurate. You must be a TTT member in good standing in order to be eligible for points.
* We will also be providing a small amount of points for participation in non-race series races. If you're participating in any race (running, multisport, triathlon, whatever) put on by our preffered race providers, you can communicate your participation by email and you will get extra points for each race. Our preffered race providers are: Trivium Racing, Jones Racing Company, Junction 311, Revolution3, and Ironman. If you are interested in races put on by other providers, contact us by email and we'll consider it.
At the end of the TTT Race Series, we will be announcing winners and prizes. Keep your eyes on the newsletters for any more information about that as the year goes by.
