Triathlon Ontario Announces New 2014 Club Championship Format

2014 Club Championships

New Format for 2014

March 20, 2014 – Triathlon Ontario announced today their exciting, New Club Championship Format for 2014.  The purpose of the annual adult Club Championship is to encourage the growth and development of the multisport club system in Ontario and to encourage and promote friendly competition between clubs in a sanctioned environment. Prize money is awarded to assist clubs with their financial obligations and to better serve their athletes.


Clubs will be designated either Division I or Division II clubs for the purpose of the Club Championships. Clubs with 50 or more members at the time of the competition will be a Division I club and will compete only against other Division I clubs. Clubs with 49 or less members at the time of the competition will be deemed a Division II club and will only compete against other Division II clubs.


The Club Championships will be contested at Subaru Triathlon Series’ Guelph Lake I event June 21/22, 2014. The events that will count towards point totals will be the individual Sprint and Olympic distance triathlons and duathlons as well as relays. In order for a relay result to count, all members of the relay must be members of the same club. Results from Try-a-Tri and Swim/Bike competitions will not count towards the point totals.

Clubs must be sanctioned with Triathlon Ontario and their members must also be members of Triathlon Ontario. Only those participants that are members of the sanctioned club at the time of the competition are eligible to score points for the Club Championship. Only members listed on the official club list maintained in the Triathlon Ontario office will be eligible to score for a club.


Every participant who finishes will be awarded minimum points.  Points will be awarded to participants based on their finishing position in their age group as per the following:

1st Place    100pts 6th Place       50pts
