Each Team must enter with 8 members to qualify as an official team. At least 3 of those members must be female. At least 2 of the 8 members, either male or female, must be entered in the duathlon. NO CHANGES ARE PERMITTED TO TEAM ROSTERS AFTER THIS DATE. SUBSTITUTIONS MAY BE MADE FOR INJURY OR OTHER UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES IN THE DISCRETION OF EVENT MANAGEMENT. All team members must register individually online and must include their team name in the question that asks for “Club or Team Name.” A Team Time will be calculated for each Team based on the cumulative time of the Team’s fastest 2 females followed by the next 3 fastest team members participating in the triathlon. Added to that time will be the fastest of the two duathlon participates. That is, the team score will be based on 6 times: the times of the two fastest females participating in the triathlon, the next three fastest times (male or female) from the triathlon and the fastest time (male or female) for the duathlon. The Team with the fastest overall Team Time wins! The Team with the second fastest time will be awarded 2nd place, and the Team with the third fastest time will be awarded 3rd place.
