SwimRun UK 2017 Race series

For 2017 all 3 races listed above will form a race series. Points will be given to the fastest finishers in each distance and each category (male pairs, female pairs & mixed pairs).

Win a trip to Australia!!!

Each January I fly the winners of the Scottish English and Irish comedian of the year competitions to Australia for the Aussie Comedy Festivals. Time to do the similar for SwimRunners.

At the end of the series the team with the highest number of points will win a trip to race in Australia in April/May 2018. We have a small test race planned for April 2017 in Perth W.A., obviously this will grow into a proper big race in 2018

For the short course there will be a prize of flights and 2 nights accommodation to SwimRun Mallorca 2017.

All race category winners get free entry to all SwimRun UK events in 2018

How will it work?

The first 10 finishers per race, in each race category, will get points (see below chart).

A points table will be created featuring all 3 categories. After Loch Lomond Inch by Inch the single team (be they male, female or mixed) with the highest number of points wins the trip to Australia (return economy flights from EU, 5 nights accommodation in Perth W.A. and 1 internal flight).

If 2 or more teams are tied on equal points then the highest category placing at Loch Lomond wins. If teams are tied as 1st place then the team with the greatest % margin gain on their category’s 2nd placed team will win.

To allow for injury or similar commitment issues, each team can substitute a maximum of 1 team member. (Only 2 persons flights to Oz and accommodation for 5 nights will be given as a prize, but 2 free team places (equalling 4 athletes) in the race will be provided if necessary.)
