Indoor Triathlon Scoring

The scoring gives equal weight to the swim, the bike, and the run, with your final score a summation of how you did compared to the winner in each of the three sports.

  • The swim, bike, and run will each be worth 100 points.
  • Male and female with the greatest distance in each event will be awarded 100 points.
  • Other participants will be awarded points based on their distance compared to the winner’s distance.
  • Final score is swim points + bike points + run points.

Indoor/Outdoor Triathlon Scoring

Scoring is by time, as in a "traditional" triathlon.
