CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP RACES

Every year our Club Captains pick a series of races to feature as our Club Championships. All members are encouraged to participate in these nominated events. They include triathlon races at a range of distances, as well as individual swim, cycle and running races. The club members achieving the best results in each race receive recognition and perhaps a trophy or two at our awards night in October.

A disrupted racing calendar due to COVID-19 has meant that Club Championships were held virtually where possible in 2020 and races have not yet been chosen for the 2021 season.

A typical Club Championships season would include the following events:

Swimming (open water)
750m

1500m

3800m

Triathlon
Sprint Distance
Olympic Distance

Middle Distance

Long Distance

Cycling
10 mile time trial

Running
5km
10km
Half Marathon

Prizes are available for the Open category and Vet (over 40).

Open = All members, regardless of age will compete for this award

Vet = Members over the age of 40 will compete for this award, unless they have won the open category

For example, if someone aged 33 is the first TVT member over the finish line, they will win the 'Open' category. The next person over the line aged 40+ will win the Vet category.  However, if someone aged 43 is the first TVT member over the finish line, they will win the 'Open' category. The next person over the line aged 40+ will win the Vet category.
