Rules and Stuff

San Antonio TriaathleteSan Antonio Triathlete is doing the point calculations for the Alamo Tri Series.  Head over there to see up-do-date rankings.

For 2013 there will be two rankings divisions based on the Redemption Racing Alamo Tri series. The following two divisions will be ranked separately:

Sprint

  • Windcrest Freshman Triathlon
  • Rockin R’ Triathlon
  • Gatorbait Triathlon
  • Tri for Old Glory Sprint Triathlon
  • Wurst Tri Ever Triathlon

Olympic

  • Greator Gator
  • Tri for Old Glory Olympic Triathlon
  • Burnet Triathlon (extreme course)

Rankings will be determined as follows:

To qualify for rankings, in either division, triathletes must complete two races from the division in which they are competing to be ranked.

Any triathlete can qualify to rank in either division; however they must finish at least two races in each division. A triathlete cannot combine finishes from both division to receive four qualifying events finishes.

Each division will be ranked by all athletes that receive a finishing time in their respective Age Group. The following Age Groups will be ranked in the 2013 Alamo Tri Series Rankings.

  • 19 and Under
  • 20 – 24
  • 25-29
  • 30-34
  • 35-39
  • 40-44
  • 45-49
  • 50-54
  • 55-59
  • 60-64
  • 65-69
  • 70-74
  • 75+

Points for ranking will be determined as follows:

100 points will be assigned to each Age Group; the total number of finishers in each Age Group will be divided into 100, the result is the ranking points that will determine the ranking points for each athlete. Example follows:

Age Group 24-29 has 22 finishers

100/22 =4.54

Top finisher will be awarded 100 points

Second place will be awarded 95.46 points (this is determined by subtracting 100-4.54 =95.46)

Third place will be awarded 90.92 points ( this determined by subtracting 95.46-4.54= 90.92)

This logic will be used all the way through to the 22nd finisher in this Age Group to determine the ranking points for each finisher.

How will ranking points be determined when two races are completed?

In the example above the Top Finisher in the Age Group 24-29 received 100 points, however in the second qualifying race that same finisher may have received only 33 points. Thus the ranking will be determined after the second qualifying race is completed by adding 100+33 and the athlete will receive 133 ranking points. The more races completed means that an athlete will have a higher ranking in that Age Group based on more points awarded.
