BMW NATIONAL SERIES POINTS SYSTEM

The BMW National Series employs a “30th percentile” points system with male and female TI members ranked separately. The triathlete who is at the 30th percentile of all TI members in a race (say 60th out of 200) will be allocated 100 points. The scores for all other times are calculated by reference to the 30th percentile.

Note: The TI Member rule means that ‘One Day Membership’ holders, Category 1 athletes and triathletes who are members of a foreign triathlon association are excluded from the calculations.

To calculate the points for the male in 10th position:

Time for 10th male:   1:05:00

Time for 60th male:   1.16:00

 

Number of points for 60th male:      100

Number of points for 10th male:

 

= TH MALE> * 100 / TH MALE>

= 76*100/65

= 7600/65

= 116.923

 

To calculate the points for the female in 50th position:

 

Time for 21st female:                      1:14:00

Time for 50th female:                      1.32:00

 

Number of points for 21st female:  100

Number of points for 50th female:            

 

= ST FEMALE> * 100 / TH FEMALE>

= 74*100/92

= 7400/92

= 80.43
