For each race in the Vodafone National Series (“NS”),
only full, student, junior and life members receive points. Total score for the
season will be the sum of the scores for the competitor’s -
* Two best standard distance races that are part of the Vodafone National Series ;
* Two best sprint distance races that are part of the Vodafone National series;
* The next best scoring race (standard, sprint, or other distance) that are part of the Vodafone National Series
(Note: the term ‘best’ above means best in terms of points earned in the race – not finishing place).
Points Are Calculated in the Following Way:
finish time of the TI member who is at the thirtieth percentile by your own
finish time, and multiply the result by 100. (The person at the thirtieth
percentile is the person who is last place within the top thirty percent of the
race competitors who are full, junior, student or life TI members). Calculate
to the third decimal place (e.g., 1.123). The nearer the first place you
finish, the higher your score. If you finish ahead of the person at the
thirtieth percentile, your score for that race will be greater than one
For example -
If there are 200 competitors in a race but only 100 of them are full, student, junior, and life members, then the competitor at the thirtieth percentile is the person who finishes thirtieth out of all those who are full, junior, student or life TI members (i.e., non-members and associate members are not considered).
If all 200 competitors are full, student, junior, and life members, then the competitor who finishes in sixtieth place is the person at the thirtieth percentile, and everyone else’s race times should be compared to that person to calculate NS points.
Let's say there are 200 people in a sprint race, all of whom are full, junior, student and life TI members, and the person in 60th place has a time of 1 hour 20 minutes and zero seconds (that's 80 minutes). If your finishing time is 1 hr 10 minutes and zero seconds you'll score 114.3 points [(80 divided by 70) x 100]. If your time is 1:40 you'll score 80 points [(80 minutes divided by 100 minutes ) x 100.
Note: In the event that the format of a National Series race changes, National Series points will still be allocated accordingly. Changes to formats include, but are not limited to, shortening/cancellation of the swim, bike or run leg in part or its entirety or running the race as a duathlon/aquathlon.
There are three “Club Championship” awards:-
Male Club Championship
The Male Club Championship will be calculated by adding the individual scores of the top 6 male athletes in each club. The winning club will be the club with the highest combined score.
Female Club Championship
The Female Club Championship will be calculated by adding the individual scores of the top 6 female athletes in each club. The winning club will be the club with the highest combined score.
Mixed Club Championship
The Mixed Club Championship will be calculated by adding the individual scores of the top 3 male and top 3 female athletes in each club. The winning club will be the club with the highest combined score.
How to Score Points for your Club
Please note that individuals can only be considered for inclusion in the club rankings if they are attached to a club on the TI membership system before the Club Championship rankings are finalised.
Please note that once you attach yourself to a club, you will not be able change clubs during the current year’s membership.
