The Triathlon London League is designed to foster rivalry between teams in the London region, and to support the races organised by London region clubs. As a big London club, with our own race to promote, this is right up our street!
There are three team competitions, male, female and mixed teams.
Male: The first three triathletes from each club to finish count for a maximum score. Two scoring triathletes will also count but the team won’t be able to score maxium points. Teams with three finishers will be ranked in order then the teams with two finishers will then be ranked below the teams of three scorers.Female: The first three triathletes from each club to finish count for a maximum score. Two scoring triathletes will also count but the team won’t be able to score maxium points. Teams with three finishers will be ranked in order then the teams with two finishers will then be ranked below the teams of three scorers.Mixed Team: The first three male and first two females to finish count. Note that you can count for both the mixed team and the single gender team. Teams with less than five triathletes (3 males and 2 females) do not score. Alongside the League there will be a “Mob Match” prize for clubs with the highest participation in League events.
Age group competition: An age group competition was introduced in 2014. This is across all age groups, the age groups as defined by Triathlon England, ie. 25-29, 30-34 year etc. (Age on 31st December 2016). Triathletes in each age group will score points with the same scoring system as the Team competitions. The race winner picks up 1 point, 2nd placed athlete 2 points, etc for the whole race. The best FOUR events to count and the overall place you finish in determines the points scored. The lowest points total wins.
The races are a mixture of duathlons, sprint tris and aquathlons. All are easy to reach from South West London, and all are very cheap to enter. They make good practice for your “A” events and can easily be fitted into even the most demanding training programme – just ask your coach!
REMINDER: when entering these races, make sure you put “Ful-On Tri” as your club, otherwise your result won’t count to the team score.
London League event details can be found on the Race Calendar where you can also register your participation in these League races, in addition to other key events for the year.
