Bring the heat to the 2015 championship competition! This season we’re adding an extra layer of competition to the typical tri experience with our Arizona Series Club Championship Competition. Here’s how you can join:

  1. Register your club. Are you the club manager, coach or main point of contact for your Tri Club? To register your club for the Life Time Tri Arizona Series Club Championship Competition, please click here to complete this survey.
  2. Register to race. Individual club members who would like to participate must complete the race registration process. The more events in which your club members participate, the more points your club will rack up. Choose your events from the series schedule toward to top of the page.
  3. Submit a club roster. You must submit a complete roster on or before April 1, 2015. You will have an opportunity to submit revised rosters prior to Life Time Tri Tempe. Once the fall roster is locked in, there will be no revisions or additions.
  4. Compete and earn points. The more your club members race, the more points your club will earn. Points will be tallied across all Arizona Series events and will be a simple accumulation of points earned by all registered club members. Points for podiums and for individual and relay team participation will all contribute to the club total.
  5. Attend our end-of-year championship celebration.
