Utah Age Group Rankings 2018 - WOMEN ROUND 2


With Jordanelle now behind us, it’s time for Round 2 of the Utah Tri Buzz 2018 age group rankings!

We stand & applaud everyone on the list. Regardless of individual rank, these are all people who have gotten out to race and who support the local scene.

Think about it, how many people stayed in bed while you were out testing your limits?? 
How many others are active, yet too chicken to ever toe a start line??

Kudos to everyone in the rankings... you're strong in both body & mind!

Lastly, keep in mind this is for FUN... please don't take the rankings too seriously.



The methodology is simple:

* To be eligible for Round 2 Rankings, must have raced at least 2 of the 9 events on the Utah Triathlon Championship Series calendar to date.




* Rankings will be updated once more following Kokopelli & Brineman. Keep in mind that a minimum of 3 races are required for the final rankings & season awards.

Round 1 (Jun): 2 race minimum
Round 2 (Aug): 2 race minimum
Round 3 (end of season): 3 race minimum (average of your top 3 races)




* The final rankings will be the basis for several “Most Improved” and other awards, not just awards for AG winners/podiums. (if you'd like to be a part of this effort, please see our message at the bottom of this post)

* Like last year, we take the AVERAGE of everyone’s top 3 series races for the final rankings… this provides some incentive to get out and race often, as you can only help yourself by racing more. For example, if you have an off day, or even a dreaded DNF, that result will shake out of your top 3 average if you race 4+ times.

* We use your Overall % to calculate the rankings (which is shown in all the individual race “Results Breakdowns” we post). This is simply how you placed vs. the field - if you placed 60th out of 100 at a race, that’s 60%. If you placed 80th out of 200 at another, that’s 40%. In this case those two then average to 50%.

Your 50% average would then be stacked up to the rest of your age group for the rankings.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the wo/man who points out how the strong wo/man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the wo/man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends her/himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if s/he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that her/his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” - Theodore Roosevelt
