QTS Categories

In the instance where there is an additional longer distance on offer the Top 10 finishers in the longer distance will receive 15 – 1.5 points, whereas the Top 10 finishers in the shorter QTS distance will receive 10 – 1 points (eg 1st place = 10 pts, 2nd place = 9 pts, 10th place = 1 pt). 13 year old QTS Participants – 13 year olds choosing to race in the QTS category will have their own category for series points including three (3) rounds only (Rounds 1, 4 & 7),  as 13 year olds are unable to race the QTS Sprint distance due to TA Guidelines – no exceptions. At all other rounds these participants are able to race in the Enticer distance.

Enticer Categories

U14 and U16 are the only Enticer Categories that are awarded points and medals at both a Round and Series level. All other Enticer categories (16yrs+ and Teams) are deemed as fun/social, and there are no awards, medals or series points. The “Enticer” distance is designed to be a first or early step into triathlons. However organisers wish to encourage our younger participants by recognizing them in this way, hence the awards for U14 & U16.   12 Year old Enticer Participants are eligible to race Enticer events at all rounds in the Under 14 Enticer category.
