Poor air quality caused the cancellation of the Kelowna Apple Triathlon, round three of the Youth & Junior SuperSeries race, originally scheduled for August 18th.
Given these unfortunate circumstances, Triathlon BC has adjusted the 2018 Youth & Junior SuperSeries points allocation and will now be hosting a three race series. The best 2 of 3 finishes will be calculated, with an overall male and female champion being awarded in the Youth and Junior category.
The final race in our series will take place at Vernon Kids Triathlon on September 9. This race is designated as the Junior and U23 Provincial Championships. Racers should note that, effective with the 2018 season, increased Series weighting will be issued at these Championships to the Youth and Junior categories:
1st – 30pts, 2nd – 25pts, 3rd – 23pts, 4th – 21pts, 5th – 19pts, 6th – 17pts, 7th -15pts, 8th – 13pts, 9th – 12pts, 10th – 11pts, 11th – 10pts, 12th – 9pts, 13th – 8pts, 14th – 7pts, 15th through 20th – 6pt.
Athletes also have the opportunity to gain external points credits for 2018. Under the direction of Triathlon Canada, racers have the option of applying up to 3 results from provincially sanctioned, single sport (swim/bike/run) towards their series points. Four points will be awarded for each supplied result. These external points must be submitted to Triathlon BC on or before September 1, 2018 .
