A sprint series at three great venues just a short drive from anywhere on the Front Range. The series welcomes all ability levels.
Racing Underground has been producing first-class endurance events on the Colorado Front Range since 1995. In 2015, we bring you the third edition of the Front Range Triathlon Series!
This fun series combines three of the best sprint events in the region - each with a different style and each with it's own personality! These are not cookie-cutter events. Every race has fantastic post-race food, unmatched random prize drawings, and high quality tech shirts!
All 3-race finishers will go home with a series award, with the top point winners in each age group earning an age group champion plaque and a gift certificate from Runners Roost.
There will also be a Club Championship series, with clubs earning valuable points at each race, that could net them a share of the $1,750 club cash purse! The top-3 clubs will take home $1,000, $500, and $250.
Join us this summer, and experience the Racing Underground difference!
Your series entry will include three unique and fun triathlons. Racing Underground events offer the perfect blend of professional event coordination with a laid back atmosphere. All participants will receive a high quality technical shirt at each race, a catered post-race meal following each event, a series award for all three-race finishers, speedy results from the best timer's in the business, and a chance to win some great sponsor gear in our post-race drawings.
Races may also be entered individually by visiting the race website for that event.
All 3-race finishers will take home a series finisher award. In addition, the following awards will be presented to series point winners:
Club Prize Money: The top-3 clubs in the series point standings will take home $1,000, $500, and $250 in club cash! Points will be earned at each event, and the team with the highest total of points will be declared the winner. All ties in the point standings will be broken by the place of the club's fastest finisher in the Littlefoot Triathlon.
Age Group Awards: The top series point winner in each 5-year age group will receive a gift certificate from Runners Roost. Age group points will be awarded at each race, and you must win points in at least 2 races to qualify for an age group award. All ties will be broken by the placing at the Littlefoot Triathlon.
Age Group Points: Age group points will be awarded to the top-10 finishers in each age group as well as Clydesdale and Athena. There will be no relay point standings or series awards. Age Group points will be awarded in each gender in the following amounts: 24-20-18-14-12-10-8-6-4-2. There will be a multiplier of 1.5 for the Littlefoot series finale, so 1st place at Littlefoot will be worth 36 points, 2nd will earn 30 points, etc. You must earn age group series points in a minimum of 2 races to qualify for a series award.
Club Points: NEW Scoring System in 2015!!! We have revised the club scoring system in 2015 to better represent top age group finishes in all age categories! This system is more fair across the board than the previous system, and we think you are going to like it!
Club Points will only be awarded to athletes who have declared their club affiliation at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the first wave. Please check the club list at packet pickup to confirm that you are listed as a member of your club. You must only designate one club affiliation. Athletes cannot score points for 2 or more clubs.
Club points will be awarded to the top-5 overall male and female finishers, and to all age group finishers who have listed their club affiliation. The top-5 overall male and female finishers (who are club members) will earn points for their club in the amounts of 20, 18, 16, 14, and 12. The top-5 overall finishers will not receive age group club points.
The top 5 finishers in each age group (who are club members) will earn points for their club in the amounts of 10, 8, 6, 4, 2. All club members who finish beyond 5th place in their age group will receive 1 point toward their clubs total.
The Littlefoot Triathlon will serve as the series championship, and all points will receive a 1.5x multiplier!!!
Other Series Point Info: Series points will be awarded in the triathlon events only. There will be no points awarded for duathlon or aquabike finishers. In My Way or the Tri Way, all TRIATHLON orders will be combined to determine the top finishers and point winners. The Littlefoot Triathlon will be the series championship, and finishers in the individual point series' will win 1.5x the points of the other two events. All ties will be broken by the placing in the Littlefoot Tri. If neither tieing athlete finishes the Littlefoot Tri, then the tie will be broken using the placing in My Way or the Tri Way. An athlete must earn points in that prize pool in at least 2 events in order to be eligible for series awards. Points are not transferable between divisions (ex: you cannot race Clydesdale in one race, and age group in another, then combine the points). Series points will be considered final three days after each event. Any point dispute must be submitted by noon on the 3rd day after an event.
