EVT 2018 Race League

EVT – Race series 2018

Introduction

The proposed race series is designed for us to participate as a club and increase “club presence” at race events. The aim is to create a focal point for EVT members to participate in racing, give them diversity of events to create a challenge, determine club champions and to promote EVT as a club within the triathlon world.

Races Series

7 events in total, with a range of distances and races to suit all and to provide challenges and diversity for members, comprising: -

3 Sprint
2 Standard
1 Aquathlon (choice of 4) 1 Duathlon
1 Mid distance

Club members can race any of these events, and submit their fastest overall time. These will then be graded against any other EVT fastest times from any of the above 4 2018 events and points scored accordingly

Mystery event

Each year we welcome nominations for a mystery event. This should be any race during the year, one which offers inspiration and something a little different from the norm.
This year is the Isoman at Redditch. For those of you who don’t know what it involves, its Triathlons attempt to equalize all 3 disciplines. If you’re a swimmer, this is the race for you!

We are hoping to arrange a discount for our members, but cannot guarantee this. It is unlikely EVT can offer refunds to members who have already booked in advance of any discount available. Communication After each race the results will be collated and the new league table will be circulated to ALL EVT members. This will be done by the Race Series Director James Vann. Social events Bredon’s Hardwick Triathlon provides facility for camping on the night before and after the event. It would be great if we could create an EVT village and, well, have a good old knees up! Keep your eyes peeled for other social events throughout the year.
