Elite/U23 Cup Series
The Ontario Elite/U23 Cup Series is an integral part of the Provincial Development Program. The objective of the Series is to provide Elite and U23 athletes (aged 20 and older) a draft legal competitive race environment within the Province. It is Triathlon Ontario’s belief that developing a strong Provincial race series is imperative to developing a system that encourages increased participation, skill development, club growth and a higher level of investment in the sport. A series that encompasses draft legal events allows athletes to develop the experience needed to appreciate the complexities and competitive nature of this style of racing and prepare the athletes for further competitive draft legal racing.
Both male and female winners will receive $500 for finishing first place in the overall Series. Second place male and female will receive $300 and the third place male and female in the overall Series will receive $200 each.
Please note: There is no racing up in age permitted for Provincial level races or series.
