Area 6 will be holding a Winter League Triathlon competition for all members in Area 6, from 1st October 2023 to conclude with the Area 6 Winter Triathlon Qualifier on March 10th, 2024.

The League will run across 10 classes, involving as many Area 6 members as possible. Members will not have to register or pay to be a part of it but will automatically be entered by competing at any of the participating competitions. For those members, and solely those members, that must move up a class from January 1st, 2024, their points up to Dec 31st, 2023, will be transferred across to their new class so they can compete totally across the ‘league season.’

The Triathlon League will be administered by the Area Rep, or a person nominated by him. They will be responsible for compiling and updating the league table after each competition and publishing the results.

The Competition will comprise of the following ten classes:

Class 1 Beanie Boys.

Class 2 Beanie Girls.

Class 3 Tadpole Boys.

Class 4 Tadpole Girls.

Class 5 Minimus Boys.

Class 6 Minimus Girls.

Class 7 Junior Boys

Class 8 Junior Girls

Class 9 Senior/Open Girls*

Class 10 Senior/Open Boys*

An Organising Branch may offer additional Classes, but these Classes will not form a part of the League Competition. Branches wishing to host a league competition should send details and dates to the Area Rep so they may be advertised and included in the series. Branches must publish all results on Pony Club Results for the event to be part of the League.

Classes must be run as per The Pony Club Tetrathlon/Triathlon Rule Book 2023 and 2024 after Jan 1st, 2024.

Points will be awarded solely to the finishing place within Area 6 entries. For example, should an Area 6 Member finish 2nd to a non-Area 6 member, the Area 6 member would receive the points for first place.

Points will be awarded as follows –

1st (over 2 starters) – 10

2nd (over 3 starters) – 8

3rd (over 5 starters) – 6

4th (over 8 starters) – 4

5th (over 10 starters) – 3

6th (over 12 starters) – 2

Unplaced completion – 1

* Please note that for all Senior Boy and Girl Classes – full points will be awarded regardless of the number of entries and also awarded to both categories even in a mixed class.

An additional 2 bonus points will be added to the score of those winning Best Run, Best Swim and Best Shoot/Throw at all events. Double points will be available at the season ending Area 6 Triathlon Winter Qualifier at Newark on 10th March 2024.

The competitors with the highest number of points over the whole series will be the winners. In the event of equality, the competitor with the best score at The Area 6 Triathlon Qualifier on March 10th will be deemed the better placed member.
