The East Essex TriStar League

The races listed in the TriStar League Table make up the East Essex Tri Club TriStar League.  They're open to all club members with athletes competing in their own gender & age group.  There are a maximum of 5 scoring events made up ot the best 2 triathlons, the best aquathlon/duathlon, the best swim/bike/run and best other event (from any category).  Scoring is based on the winner getting maximum points and then for other competitors, points are awarded as a proportion of the winners time divided by their time.  It is therefore important that if you can't win the race to get as close as possible to the winner's time.  Points are awarded as follows:-

Best 2 Triathlons * Maximum 100 points *  Measured from category winner (from any club)    
Best Aquathlon / Duathlon Maximum 100 points  Measured from category winner (from any club)
