This is Australia’s very first age group draft legal Super Sprint Series and it is being held right here in Perth. Each race will consist of 3 x super sprint distances of a 300m swim, 7km bike and 1.5km run, the order of these 3 races will be mixed each race. Athletes will have a chance to recover between races and work out their strategy for the next one. The racing is fast/ furious and fun but allows for no mistakes.
Race 1 at Champion Lakes will be the first in a 3 races series held throughout November/ December.
This is the order of the races at Champion Lakes.
- Race 1 Swim/ Bike/ Run
- Race 2 Run/ Bike/ Swim
- Race 3 Swim/ Run/ Bike
# Race 2 at Lake Leschenaultia and Race 3, the series final, will be at Champion Lakes. The race orders will be different at each race.
Race Day athletes in each super sprint will accumulate points based on their position crossing the finish line ie. 1st = 1 point, 2nd = 2 points, the athlete at the end of the 3 races with the lowest total will be the winner on the day.
At Champion Lakes 22/12 the Series Final Race 3 end - the total score from each will be added and the Series Winners will be crowned and the celebrations and bragging rights begin.
There will also be prize money for Open Athletes for each mini race, at the end of the race day and the end of the race series, so if you have ever thought about making the step up to open racing this is a great chance.
