Grand Prix Updates

The current Grand Prix Standings have been updated thru the Lake Lure Triathlons on our website. Congratulations to the top 5 men and women so far this season!

There is still time for your Grand Prix races to be counted and there are still 2 races to qualify for points on this year’s Grand Prix schedule! We have the Augusta 70.3 race at the end of September as well as a brand new ‘dirty’ duathlon on October 9th, called ‘Dig the Du‘.

Ever wonder how the Grand Prix race results are tallied?
Scores are calculated based on the top 5 finishers (males and females separately).  The higher you place at a race the better your score will be no matter how many people are racing. For example, an Olympic distance race has a higher weighted scoring in comparison to a sprint race. Your top 4 scores (one of those scores can be from a “Wild Card’ race) will be used to determine your Grand Prix standings. You can also earn an ‘extra’ few points for volunteering at a Grand Prix race on our schedule and at the ACT Half Marathon water stop.

We are still missing quite a few results from our Asheville Tri Club members and we KNOW you have been at some of our Grand Prix races. Don’t miss out on being counted in our Grand Prix, we have great prizes at the end of the season for participants in the Grand Prix and for overall winners! It’s easy to have your races tallied and counted, just submit your race results for any of our Grand Prix races on this form.
