Event Awards and Prize Money
Awards as well as prize money will be paid to the top 3 athletes in each sport class at the following events: Pleasant Prairie Triathlon, Nantucket Triathlon and the Tri Santa Cruz.

The breakdown is as follows: 1st place - $350, 2nd place - $100, 3rd place - $50.

Overall Series' winners in each category will also receive a prize purse check in the amount of $500.

Prize money will be paid in a check from Dare2tri after the event. Submission of a W-9 form is required before prize money is distributed. Any income taxes associated with the prize money are the sole responsibility of the winner.

To be eligible for the prize money and awards athletes must: race in the Paratriathlon division, be a U.S. citizen or U.S. National,  hold a valid USA Triathlon annual paratriathlete membership and have a “C”, “R” or “P” sport class status from USA Triathlon or ITU. Athletes who hold an elite paratriathlete membership are not eligible for prize money or awards.

Series Championship
Series Champions are determined from the results of an athlete’s top three series events, in the USA Triathlon Competition Categories during the Paratriathlon waves, based on the points table shown below. 

Finish Place

To be eligible for the overall Series title, an athlete must compete in at least three series events. If an athlete competes, but does not score points, in a series event, that race will count toward the three race minimum requirement. If an athlete starts a series event but does not finish (DNF), that race also will count toward the minimum events requirement. Any ties will be broken by comparison of head-to-head finishes in series events. If there are no head-to-head finishes to compare, or there is still a tie, the athlete who raced the final event — the Tri Santa Cruz — wins.  If both athletes race the final event, the athlete with the higher place finish wins. Only athletes representing the United States are eligible to score points and be ranked in the series.

Any athlete wishing to compete in the race series must have a USA Triathlon National Classification or an ITU Classification of a “C” or “R” or “P” and be 16 years of age or older as of Dec. 31, 2015.
