Junior Multi-Sport Championships

Multi-sport events cannot use the same format as the Running Championship without becoming incredibly complex and very difficult to manage. Therefore, a simplified points-based method will be used that captures the athlete’s performance in the context of the event.

  • Standard gender and age grouping will be used.
  • Separate Triathlon and Duathlon championships will held.
  • A set of prescribed events, representing a mixture of Triathlon or Duathlon distances will be used for the Multi-Sports Championship.
  • The BRJ athlete must participate in a prescribed minimum number of events and the overall Championship will use the three best scores over the year.

 

SCORING

  • Scoring will be based on the athlete’s performance in the event in their given age/gender category.
  • Points will be awarded based on whole numbers and the percentile in which they finish.
  • The Multi-Sports Championship will be based on the 3 (three) best scores achieved over the season.

Scoring is as follows.

Top 20 Percentile of your age and gender group = 10 points
Second 20 Percentile = 8 points
Third 20 Percentile = 6 points
Fourth 20 Percentile = 4 points
Fifth 20 Pereentile = 2 points
2 bonus points are awarded if the BRJ member wins the age and gender group for the event
1 bonus point will be awarded to the top BRJ member in the age and gender group
