2019 Team Selected Races


2019 Spirit Races - As a team we have decided to target several events to try to achieve a minimum of 20 Trifurian participants.  This is to bring back the team atmosphere.  The events are listed below:

  • T.B.D.
So as you plan your race calendar for 2019 - PLEASE consider these races and lets bring the Trifury crowd back to these events.  We will have the Trifury tent at these races and potentially some nice surprises if you participate. 

Why did we pick these races?
As a new team we thought it was important to steer members, particularly those new to triathlon, to well supported, well run, and safe races. Also we wanted to cover all the race distances from Sprint to Half-Ironman. Although we recognize that there are many more races that would fit this description, the ones that we did choose were selected because they had challenging courses, good support, a good location and maybe just because the after-race party was good! 

In addition to the list of selected races in the table below, the following races will also count as a Team Selected Race.  Please note, it is the responsibility of the member to email the Results Coordinator ( after the race in order to receive credit for any of the following races:
  • Each Iron-distance Triathlon (2.4/112/26.2) will count as 1 Team Selected Race.
  • Each USAT National Championship will count as 1 Team Selected Race.
  • Each World Championship will count as 1 Team Selected Race
For additional information about how the Team Selected Races are scored/credited, please look for information that appears below the Selected Events Calender.

A few notes about the Team Selected Races and how they are scored/credited, especially for newer members:

1) You must be a current member of TriFury and a member in good standing at the time of the race for the points to count towards your year end total.

2)  Participating in a Team Selected Race counts toward your total.  You only need to start a Team Selected Race to be given credit.  Having a mechanical issue, or an race day injury (bee-sting, etc....), or DNF will not prevent a member from gaining credit.

3) Participating at Try the Tri counts (maximum 1 point for the season).  

4) Volunteering at Try the Tri counts (1 volunteer point each time you volunteer)

5) Participation in Team Selected Races as a Volunteer or Relay Team Member can count for up to 3 points (combined).  This can be a combination of volunteering at one race (
must be a specifically designated as TriFury volunteer "event" which are currently the Mill Cities Relay, the Multisport Expo, and the Call to Honor Triathlon and being on a relay for two races, or volunteering at three specifically designated races, or any combination of relay and volunteering.   As an example, to get to 6 Races, you can:

  • Volunteer at Multisport Expo, Call To Honor, and Try the Tri three times
  • Patriot Triathlon Relay - Team Member
  • Participate at Season Opener, Mill City and Cranberry TriFest Olympic   

    In the above example, the member would have 6 points.  Three points from racing Season Opener, Mill City and Cranberry TriFest Olympic and three points from the combination of the relay event (Patriot Triathlon) and volunteering.

6) For Relay participation, all relay members must be TriFury members...this is a great way to meet new people, try your first triathlon and/or still race with your teammates even if an injury prevents you from training in all 3 disciplines. If you're looking for relay teammates, post here - you will likely have lots of takers!

Why care about the number of points you have?
We will again have year end "goodies" for everyone who participates in 3-5 Team Select Races as well as something extra cool for those who do 6+ races. We've had some really great prizes in years past, so if you can fit 3 or more of these into your calendar, you won't be disappointed!
