MetaSprint Equalizer: Champion of Champions!

This year only one athlete will be able to call him/herself Champion of Champions for each of the MetaSprint Series races!

Based on the fastest women’s and men’s results of the past three years, the women’s elite wave will get a head start on the men. The first man or woman across the finish line will be the Champion of Champions!
The handicap for the men for this year’s MetaSprint Series will be as follows:

Aquathlon:    2:40

Duathlon:      8:53

Triathlon:      5:45

The Champion of Champions for all 3 events will receive a prize. Watch out for more info soon.

Sprint Elite Wave

The organiser selects the best athletes to start in the 1st wave of the sprint race for each event and compete with athletes or similar abilities regardless of age group.

These athletes will still be ranked in their respective age groups.
The elite-wave athletes are selected based on the MetaSprint Series results of 2016 and 2017.

Athletes who have not been selected and believe they should be in the Elite Wave can apply for a wild card (limited slots only). To do so please email us indicating your best recent race results (event name, distance, year, time and placing) at least 12 days before the event. Late applications will not be accommodated.

NEW: Mates Wave

New this year (starting at the Duathlon), Sprint Individual participants can now opt for the Mates Wave and race with their friends. Great for people who are in it for the fun and who wants run and bike with their friends and training buddies. Open for both male and female Sprint Individual participants only.

A fun way to be a triathlete.
