We received some exciting news from WTC’s Director of Athlete Development and Communications. Based from the size of our club, Fi-Am tri was classified under Division ll Tri Club podium. Here how it works:
Annual Award: The points for the annual award are earned as follows:
Athletes earn AGR points at each IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 race globally. 1000 pts. per race for clubs that volunteer as a group (aid station., swim exit, etc.) 250 pts. per IRONKIDS participant. Bring your kids to Oceanside and have the run in the Fun Run – 250 pts. each kid 500 pts. for every woman who races with IRON GIRL 750 pts. per relay team that finishes at any of our IRONMAN 70.3 races that allow relays Races that are Regional Championships add bonus points to the club point totals. Strategically it is better to send athletes to those races.
The TriClub Award – added to the Age Group awards – is:
Awarded to the top point getting club in each one of the Five Race Divisions. These points are cumulative.
The teams with the greatest number of athletes racing have a better chance of winning their division. Every athlete who races contributes to the total if they cross the finish line. The points are based on Age Group Ranking points
Next time you sign up for an Ironman Event, don’t forget to specify our club – FilAm Tri. Every point counts!
