TTT Race Series Points
For 2020 we are changing the race series system to offer greater chances for everyone on the team to participate. In the past if you missed just one race from the series your chances of placing were greatly reduced. Now we will offer eight races in the series but only the best five count. So, you can race all eight and pick your top five or only race five! We will also continue to support our race partners by offering a small amount of points for other races completed outside of the series!
We also ramped up our prizes last year, with 12 prizes (Men's 1-3, Women's 1-3, Novice (M/F), Volunteer, and Champions 1-3) with each of those getting a prize. We would like everyone to have a change of winning, while still offering competition for our previous winners, so we're starting a "Champions" award. So if you win any prize, you will be competing in the champions category for the next 2 years. This will offer greater competition for previous winners while offering others a greater chance to win their category! 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.
* Points for results and kit/shirt only apply to races in the race series.
**We will also be providing a small amount of points for participation in non-race series races. Points will increase with longer distance races (10 for Oly, 15 for 70.3, 20 for 140.6). 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.
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.
