MultiRace recognizes the highly competitive nature of our Triathletes, Duathletes, & Aquabikers and is pleased to announce an enhanced racer experience for the Tri Fort De Soto. Multirace believes the dedication of our athletes should be acknowledged beyond the event date with the creation of The 2019 Tri Fort De Soto Triathlon Series Points & Awards.
Series points allow the athlete to accumulate equalized points for each race in the series. Points are given for the average time for each event (100 base points for a Sprint distance or 108 base points for an international distance). Your points will be calculated by the average field time (in seconds), multiplied by the base distance points, then divided by your time (in seconds). If you are faster than the average field time, your points will be greater than the base points. This allows for a consistent points system that isn't affected by the number of participants in a particular event or by the time of the overall winner, which can vary greatly depending on who shows up.
For the Tri Fort De Soto Triathlon Series Points Awards, racers must participate in all 3 events (same race type & category). All qualifying racer points will be tallied up after the final race and the Top 3 (male & female) Overall winners in each race type along with the Top 5 in Age Group categories will be eligible for Series Awards. Series Awards will be held on TBD at Shelter #6 at 11am (after race#3)
