You voted, we listened!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!

After a popular pre-christmas vote on next year’s club competitions, it was very clear that there was a lot of interest in some of the competitions proposed to be dropped in 2017.  The “Club Championship Only Please” voting option returned a massive zero votes, so the decision to drop the other competitions in 2017 wasn’t the correct one.  We should have a good selection of hotly contested competitions next season!

So, back by popular demand for next season are the Swim Championship, Bike Championship, Run Championship, and Summer Run Series.  Competitions will run from the following dates:

  • Club Championship (All Age Groups) – 1st March 2017 to 31st October 2017, for any Aquathlon, Duathlon or Triathlon events entered.  The Club Championship competition has been extended  in 2017 to include the opportunity to score points at any early season duathlon or aquathlon events pre the main triathlon season.
  • Swim Championship – 1st March 2017 to 31st October 2017, for any swim only events entered.
  • Bike Championship – 1st March 2017 to 31st October 2017, for any bike only events entered.
  • Run Championship – 1st March 2017 to 31st October 2017, for any run only events entered.  This includes Parkrun.
  • Summer Run Series – 1st April 2017 to 30th September 2017.

There’ll be another announcement ahead of the competitions starting on how to submit your results next season.  The positive of our club competitions are that you can enter any event you like, and score points, rather than them being set club events only.  The downside to that is that where I am unaware of someone entering an event, some events can get missed, which happened in 2016.  I will try and keep up to speed on the main events people enter in 2017, but to try and make everything easier I will also create an online results submission form, to try and make sure I don’t miss anything where I’m not aware.

If anyone is unsure about how any the competitions work or how points are scored, let me know!

 

Club Competitions 2017 – Quick Poll

Based on discussions at our recent Christmas Party, the feeling was that some of the competitions planned to be dropped after the 2016 season would be welcomed in 2017.  So, based on the feedback, I thought it might be useful to run a quick poll to gauge interest!  Please let me know which of the below competitions you’d like to be run on top of the Club Championship in 2017.  Voting is down at the bottom of this post.

Just a quick reminder on formats:

Swim Championship, Bike Championship and Run Championships

These are 3 separate championship competitions run for each of the individual disciplines.  So if you enter a swim event (e.g. Great North Swim), a bike event (e.g. any Sportive), or a run event (e.g. York 10k), your results will go towards that individual championship.  Points are scored in exactly the same way as the Club Championship.

The only suggested difference for this competition is that it will start earlier in the year to account for events pre-triathlon season.  So the proposal is that these competitions will run from 1st March 2017 to 31st October 2017, to include some of the early sportive and run events.

Summer Run Series

The Summer Run Series was started in 2016 as an event designed for everyone to compete in regardless of ability.  Each competitor submits their current 5km personal best time at the beginning of the season, and points are scored based on performance against that personal best.  You are therefore running against yourself.  Competitors can submit any 5km time (it doesn’t have to be in an event), and score points based on whether they got close to their PB, beat their PB, or smashed their PB.

Voting is open until the end of 24th December 2016.  Please vote using the form below:

For 2017, which of the below competitions would club members like to see run again?
