BC AGE GROUP RACE SERIES

What is the BC Age Group Race Series?

The Age Group Race Series was born in early 2024, built around the desire for Age Group athletes across the province to test their mettle against themselves and against others in their age and gender category.

The Age Group Series will see evolutionary tweaks, as we learn lessons from the 2024 seasons. By participating in the Series, we hope you will enjoy the journey to camaraderie and fitness through multisport.

The Fine Print

Triathlon BC’s Race Series is open to all annual members. Participants that have purchased day membership will have a period of seven days after a race to join Triathlon BC and have their race result count towards the Series. For example, to have a May 2nd event result count toward the member’s combined Series total time, the individual would need to be a confirmed annual member by May 9th.

Age categories are based on the athlete’s age at year-end (as of December 31st) of the race season in question.

Scoring is based on an athlete’s age group and gender results.

A one-time volunteer bonus is awarded to all competitors that can verify volunteering at a local event.
