We are excited to announce the Annual Team Challenge of the Greater Boston Area. The only thing more fun than racing this sprint tri is doing it as a part of a team! So we are offering teams of 5 or more the opportunity to see how they stack up. This competition is for bragging rights in Boston as the fastest club team. Here’s the deal:
  • This challenge is open to teams made up of 5 or more racers. Each team member must be associated with his or her team in the registration database to be included in the competition and only finishers are considered for points.
  • The Team Challenge Award will be scored similarly to the USAT Club Championship system, by which the teams receive points and their five highest finishers count toward their team score. Members of each club with at least 5 members, including one man and one woman will be eligible. Athletes from each club will be ranked based on how they finish within their category. Points will be awarded as follows: 5 for first, 4 for second, 3 for third, 2 for fourth, and 1 point for fifth. The team with the most points wins.
  • Winner takes all: Up to 10 pairs of running shoes and $500 to the winning team!
