The CLUB Handicap Championships & Veteran Handicap Championship
Designed to cater for the varied and rich spectrum of triathletes in MVH. Your race time is represented as a percentage of the time of the winning triathlete in your age group. The winner of the age group on the race day would be given 100%. In theory all triathletes, regardless of age can compete on an even playing field. For those less than 50 years old, the age group band is 5 years (with the exception of BRAT and Blithfield whereby results are published in 10 year age groups). For those discerning triathletes greater than 50 year old (veteran championship), the age group span is 10 years. The lowest percentages from 3 races count. Only one alternative race result will be counted. The winner is the triathlete closest to an aggregate of 300%.
The NOVICE Handicap championships
If you are new to triathlon and this is your first or second season, this is the championship for you! As in the Club Handicap Championship, the lowest percentages from 3 races count. The winner is the triathlete closest to an aggregate of 300%. The 2019 selection of races is detailed below. To win or be second in a championship you must compete in 3 races (as described above).
In the event of race times being published with no age group information, your time will be expressed as a percentage of the male/female winning time.
This year in a change of format the aquathon race will allow 2 awards. As per previous years there will be a handicap race, but this year there will also be an overall aquathon champion, whereby the fastest overall race time (male and female), will be awarded aquathon winner. The aquathon in its usual handicap format will also be run whereby each member is required to have entered at least 3 races, prior to the final race whereby competitors are then started in order so that we should have a sprint finish for the winner.
Club TT Bike Race
The club TT bike race will again take place as per previous years. Club members will have to have registered with MVH strava, as the strava time around the course will be used to select the winner. Male and female TT winners will be awarded. This year’s TT competition will run from 1st May until 31st August.
