Grand Prix Winners

Here is a list of everyone that has won a prize in this years Grand Prix, please can you check if you are on it. The prizes are given out after the AGM on the 3rd December. Please try to be there to collect your prize.

Training Duathlon

Brrrrr it was a cold one today, well done to the competitors and the marshals for turning out today. Here are the results. See below for details of the next training session.

The Christmas Fun Event

The session at Prissick Base on the 16th December is our Christmas fun event, we will be having a raffle and a buffet after the duathlon, please can you bring a buffet contribution if you wish to join in. Can we also please have donations for the raffle as well.

The Grand Prix 2017

We have had the last event of our grand prix series and the scores have been counted.  As far as we know these are the final standings that you can see here.   If you think that we have missed any results then please let us know.

Tricia Bell has led the 60-69 category since the beginning of the season and still leads with the highest score of all the ladies.  Anne Robson is second and Sandra Main is third in this age group.  The 50-59 group is much closer with high scoring Kath Blakey leading from Kay Stokes with Pauline Johnson third.  Angela Ackerley is top of the 40-49 category due in part to her excellent ironman Copenhagen result.  Caroline Wilson is second in this age group.  Gemma Pearson is top of the 20-29 group while Paige McLeod is the best junior followed by Danielle Colmer.

Graeme Downs has been rewarded for doing so many events (9) by having the lead in the 40-49 category and also posted the highest score of all the men.  Ironman Alan Johnstone is second and Peter Ball (another high mileage competitor) is third.  Another big scorer is Graham Currie who leads the 50-59 age group by a long way.  Joe Foley is second and Kevin McLauchlin is third in this age group.   Tony Main leads the 60-69 year olds with James Robson second.  Scott Young leads the 20-39 age group with Matthew Heap second.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three in each age group at our AGM and it would be good to see you all there to congratulate the winners.  This is also a great opportunity for you to have your say in how our club is run.  The date of the AGM will be announced shortly.

Gran Prix – The Rules

The rules are the same as last year and are listed below on this website.  One clarification regarding our own events; as club members you should all be marshalling one of the three (Sprint, Short Course or Steelman) and therefore you cannot score points in all three.  If you have entered all three (we assume that you have arranged a substitute marshall) then we will pick the best two results for inclusion in the grand prix series.  This is just to be fair on those members who would have entered all three if it were not for the marshalling rule.
Happy racing!

  • Points are awarded on the basis of your finishing time with respect to the winning time both male and female.
  • Most events will be scored out of 100, but ironman events will be scored out of 200, and super sprint races scored out of 90.  If there is more than one race at the same event then the long race will be scored out of 100 and the points available for the other races will be reduced.  A list of races and the points available can be found here.
  • The events in the grand prix series are intended to be local although we traditionally include Helvellyn and other events in the Lake District.  The ironman does not have to be local or even in the UK.  All we ask is that you enter as a member of Cleveland Triathlon Club and you provide details of the race and the results.
  • Other events will be considered for inclusion in the series but we would expect it to be local and sanctioned by Triathlon England.
  • Your best five results in the season count towards your final score.  The top three in each age group will qualify for prizes that are usually awarded at the AGM.
  • To qualify for a prize you must have completed a minimum of three events.

IMPORTANT: Club Membership

It is a condition of membership within Cleveland Triathlon Club that ALL members marshal one of our events. Year after year it is the same people turning up to help, many of whom are not even club members. We would appreciate that once you have made your selection for the event you are willing to marshal you honor that commitment. Please be considerate to the event organisers who already have a hard enough job to do with out being let down at the last minute.
The cost of membership and entry fee’s for events are kept low because of voluntary helpers, if we have to start paying for marshals the membership and event entry fees will increase.
