Castle Swim Series and Castle Run Series Events:

Prizes will be awarded to the overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed male and female.

Series prizes

To win the Individual Entry, Overall Series, triathletes need to compete in 3 of the 5 chosen races.

In doing so there will be a 1st place winner in both male and female in all race distances (Adults and Child/Junior).

The actual place finish in the race, equals the number of points allocated (e.g. finish 3rd and you get 3 points). The series winner will be calculated by adding a competitor’s three (3) best races in terms of points scored (having discarded a race or races if they have competed in four or five races).

The person with the least number of points will be the winner. In the event that competitors are tied on points there will be a count back of results.

The winner will be decided by the triathlete with the most first place finishes.  If still tied, it will then be the athlete with the most second place finishes etc.
