Take part in our selection of races that form the NTC 2018 club championships, sponsored by Vekta Velosport.
2017 was the first year of the club championships and in 2018 the number of races to choose from has been expanded, in order to give members more choice.
These races are up to Olympic distance in length.
Going Long award
If Ironman, 70.3 and similar length races are your thing, we have a separate “Going Long” award, sponsored by Odesma.
Submit any half or full distance race result for the Going Long award. The winner will be the person whose age group position is nearest in percentage terms to that of the age group winner of that race.
The club championships are for adults (aged 17 and over).
The club championship places for junior members (aged seven to 16 inclusive) will be based on their positions in the West Midlands Triathlon Series.
About the club championships
The club championship races have been chosen to be relatively local and to provide a good mix of distances, terrain and open water or pool swimming.
There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd placings for both men and women.
Members must compete in at least three races, one of which must be a triathlon, in order to be included in the league. Their best three results count towards their final score. Scores are calculated as a percentage of the winner’s time in your age group, with the overall highest percentage the winner.
To take part, follow the weblinks to enter and let Wayne Lamb know your result when you’ve finished.
To enter the Going Long award, simply submit your result Wayne Lamb.

1. All participants must be members of NTC
2. Participants must enter as NTC and be listed as NTC in the race results. Please compete in club kit or use neutral kit if you don’t have club kit. Competing in the name of another club will mean your result will not count for the club championships.
3. You can enter as many races as you like, but at least one must be a triathlon. Your best three results will count. In the event of a tie, your 4th result will count.
4. Scores will be calculated by dividing the age group winner’s time by your time to produce an age graded %. The highest average % score at the end of the year will win. (This also deals with age changes throughout the year if competing in different age groups)
