Those aged 14 to 15 can participate in triathlon in the Junior category with the written consent of their parents. Qatari athletes are also eligible for prizes in the Open and Veteran categories Juniors and veterans can choose to enter Open category if they prefer. However points are not transferable between categories.
Points are calculated based on the athlete’s finish time behind the first eligible scorer in their category. Only QCTF members are eligible.

Your 4 best results out of 5 events counts. In case of any races are cancelled, we take in consideration races that were done until end of the series. (best 3 out of 3, best 4 out of 4 or best 4 out of 5 if all races in series are conducted). In the event of a tie, the athlete with the most recent better result will win.
Athletes are encouraged to check their points/rankings throughout the year to make sure all their results and data are accurate.
Results of each race and Series standings will be available live on official website of the Series: https://qtriseries.com/
In events which offer several distances (Super sprint, Sprint, Olympic, Long distance), points will be equally allocated for each distance i.e. the winner of the sprint race and the winner of the Olympic race will each get 250 points. This also applies where there is a separate Qatar National Championships race. Only QCTF members are taken into account.
Series awards will only be made if there is a minimum of three qualifying athletes in the category.
Male and female league winners will receive Qatar Triathlon League trophies and prizes which will be presented at the Triathlon Awards at the end of the season or during the last event.
