Points for the series will be tallied after each race and the leaders will be posted on the Grand Prix Standings section of our website. If an athlete enters multiple categories (Triathlon, Duathlon, Aquabike, Clydesdale/Athena) during the season, points will accrue separately in each category. After the last race of the season, the prizes will be awarded to the top male and female athletes who have earned the highest total points. Age group winners will receive awards for the highest total in each age group. There is no duplication of awards. Kayak and Non-Multisport events do not gain points. Overall winners are ineligible for age group awards.

Q. Can a competitor accumulate both overall and age group points in an event? (i.e. 3rd overall & age group winner)
A: No if they are in the top 3 overall they just get those points and don’t win their age group
Q. Are overall totals a combination of overall points + age group points or are they maintained separately?
A: They are maintained the same, if you are 3rd overall in one race you get 4 points and if you are first in age group the next race you get 3 points for a total of 7 points.
Q. How deep are the age groups?
A: Age groups go 1 deep for Grand Prix awards
Q. I did not finish 3 Grand Prix events but I still see my points?
A: We will display all the points but you will not be elligible for Grand Prix awards until you hit the 3 event quota.
