Ironman St. George 2020: COUNTY COMPETITION



IRONMAN ST. GEORGE 2020
COUNTY COMPETITION RULES:

1) THIS IS FOR FUN - build camaraderie with fellow Iron men & women in training who live near you and help each other prepare for the big day

2) Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate

3) Will be scored like a cross country meet - the top "x" (# TBD) per team will "score" for their team

For example, let's say after compiling the list of everyone participating we determine that each team has 25 people. From there we may decide that the Top 10 will "score" (for cross country meets it's typically 7 racing and the top 5 score, but we can use whatever #s we want).



So then race day comes, and let's say SLC West's top 10 finishers are (overall out of everyone racing): 100th, 250, 300, 400, 500, 550, 600, 650, 675 & 700.

Total that all up and SLC West's team score would be 4,725 which would be compared to the other teams' scores (lower score the better).

The remaining 15 people on the team wouldn't factor into the team score, so there's no pressure to "score," just do the best you can.  Make sense?

The teams are expected to break down something like this:

The below chart shows the Top 10 local Utah triathlons for the 2019 season in terms of # participants.

By being in the Top 10, these races have clinched a spot in the 2020 Utah Triathlon Championship Series.

Special congrats to TriUtah's Dino Triathlon, which wasn't part of the 2019 Series, but earned its way in for 2020!  The Southern Utah Triathlon, which just took place and counts towards the 2020 season, just posted a solid participation # of 176 in its bid to steal a spot for 2021.

The 2nd chart shows some participation trending data for the Ironman-branded race in St. George over the years. Note that Ironman St. George will also be part of the 2020 Series (as in years past).

Lastly, as previously announced the DAYBREAK OLYMPIC will be the single day, State Championship race in June 2020!
