This applies to both the Sprint and Standard events.

TRIATHLON CLUB CHALLENGE

Clubs from all over Canada and USA compete against each other to earn bragging rights as the fastest club at Wasa. Results will be based on lowest total time for the top 5 triathletes that includes at least 2 women. A Tri Club may have any number of triathletes participating in the triathlon, but only five will count for the total time. To qualify, all members must be part of the same club that is affiliated with a triathlon governing body, such as Tri BC, ATA, Tri SASK and USAT. So round up your Tri Club teammates and show off your team spirit at Wasa !
