Club Race Series 2018


Each year Stafford Triathlon Club set out a selection of races that form the club’s race series which give a focal point for members and create a great atmosphere on race day!

To qualify for the series you must take part in at least three of the races. If you take part in more races only your best three scores count. The club endeavours to create a series to suit all levels, distances etc, which is no easy task, but hope as many members as possible are catered for. If you do intend to take part you are encouraged to enter these events as soon as possible. Many of these races fill up surprisingly quickly!

Scores will be calculated throughout the series and presentations will be made the successful triathletes at the end of the season – Good Luck!
