Long Course Series
In 2015 Triathlon Ontario created a new Long Course Provincial Series specifically for Age Groupers. In order to participate in the Series, athletes must be Triathlon Ontario members by the final point tally, after the last event. The list of 2018 events and their associated point weights are as follows:
|MSC Rose City Long Course Triathlon||June 23, 2018||1.0x (Provincials)|
|IRONMAN 70.3 Muskoka||July 8, 2018||1.0x|
|MSC K-Town Long Course Triathlon||August 5, 2018||1.0x|
|MSC Niagara Falls Barrelman||Sept. 16, 2018||1.0x|
Rules of the Competition
There are 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, 2018. 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 Triathlon Ontario members). Athletes can compete in as many or as little events as they wish but only the best two results will count toward the final total. After each race Triathlon Ontario will publicize the updated standings.
Athletes must race in their proper age groups to ensure the results are ranked properly in order to be included.
In the case of a tie after the Series is complete, the winner will be determined by the best overall result at Long Course Provincials. If neither of the tied athletes have competed at Provincials then the winning athlete will be determined by taking the best averaged percentage of the winner’s overall time in the two best results of each tied athlete.
