Paratriathlon Update – Qualifying for Nationals

Image

 

Many of you have Partriathlon programs within your region and have a Regional championship during the year. I will like to share with some latest news from the Paratriathlon Committee for Paratriathletes that want to participate at the National Championship in Austin, Texas. 

Some questions have come up recently about using different distance USAT sanctioned races (Olympic, Half, Full) as qualifying events for this year’s Paratri Nationals.  Amanda clarified to the Paratriathlon committee, so he wanted to pass along to all of us.  

Let me know if you have any questions.

In Amanda’s (USAT Paratriathlon Program Manager) chart below, the first column of times represents the winner’s time; the second column of times represents the to threshold for qualification (40% of the winning time).

Amanda Duke’s explanation today:

Only USAT-Sanctioned SPRINT distances events qualify athletes for Nationals. A sprint distance is defined as any race with the following distance ranges. Swim: 0.4km-1km; Bike: 8km-30km; Run: 1.6km-6.3km

Their finishing time at the sprint distance race must be within 40% of the winners time for their category from the 2012 event.

The event must occur between June 1, 2011 and May 1, 2013.
