Note where races host several distances, only the distance listed above qualifies towards the TRI Munster League
Athletes accumulate points in two ways, by finishing one of the qualifying races and by placing 1st 2nd or 3rd in their Age Group (AG), male or female. Male and female age groups go in decades, >20, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+. AG placing is based on eligible Athletes only and not necessarily all those finishers in each age groups
For example, Athlete A finishes 1st in their AG and Athlete B finishes 2nd. However, Athlete A is not a 2019 member of a TI affiliated club and therefore does not qualify for the TRI Munster League. Athlete B is awarded 1st place for Tri Munster Scoring.
The points awarded for finishing and for AG placing are as follows:
The top four results from any of the nine races count for your cumulative score. There is no limit on how many races an Athlete can do, but only four races count toward the Athlete’s overall league score.
In the event of a tied total score at the end of the league, the Athlete with the most age group wins will be declared the winner. That can be counted back to 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. places as required.
Prize money is awarded equally to male and female winners as follows.
If an Athlete wins an overall prize, they are not eligible for the Ag prize.
Prize money will be distributed to the winners Club who will then present the prize to their Athlete(s) at either the club AGM, Christmas party or similar.
As well as individual scoring there is also a Club Cup. The TRI Munster League Club Cup will be awarded to the club with the highest cumulative points among the club’s top two male, and top two female club members.
TRI Munster League overall & AG placing and prizes are completely separate from the placing and prizes of the participating races.
