Utah Age Group Rankings 2017 - MEN FINAL

It’s time for the Utah Tri Buzz FINAL 2017 age group rankings!

The same things we said in the women's rankings apply to the men. 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 the Final Rankings, must have raced at least 3 of these 19 events on the local calendar (36 total races counting all distance options):

  • Icebreaker (Apr 8)
  • Ironman St. George 70.3 (May 6)
  • Salem Spring (May 13)
  • Sand Hollow - Sprint/Olympic (May 20)
  • East Canyon - S/O (Jun 10)
  • Rock Cliff - S/O (Jun 17)
  • Daybreak - S/O (Jun 24)
  • DinoTri - S/O (Jun 24)
  • Echo - S/O (Jul 8)
  • Toughman Utah Half (Jul 15)
  • San Rafael - S/O (Jul 15)
  • Topaz - S (Jul 15)
  • Jordanelle - S/O (Aug 12)
  • Black Ridge - S/O (Aug 12)
  • Kokopelli - S/O (Sep 9)
  • Bear Lake Brawl - S/O/H/F (Sep 9 & 16)
  • Camp Yuba - S/O (Sep 16)
  • Brineman - S/O/H (Sep 16)
  • Southern Utah - S/O (Oct 28)

Round 1 (thru June): 2 race minimum
Round 2 (mid Aug): 2 race minimum
Round 3 (end of season): 3 race minimum (AVERAGE of your top 3 races)

* These final rankings will be the basis for several “Most Improved” and other awards, not just awards for AG elites.

* Like last year, we take the AVERAGE of everyone’s top 3 races… 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. Let's say you placed 60th out of 100 at a race (60%), 80th out of 200 at another (40%) and 50th out of 250 at another (20%). In this case those three results then average to 40%.

Your 40% average would then be stacked up to the rest of your age group for the rankings.

Rankings below! Just for fun we've also added the # of local races each person participated in to qualify.
