In a new umbrella series from North America’s Set Up Events, triathletes completing five or more designated ‘Set Up Cup’ events across the Set Up family of races will be invited to race at a free Championship Race event and compete for top-level awards.
Set Up is offering the registration-free race to reward these athletes’ commitment to the sport of triathlon.
The 18 events in the Set Up Cup series, to be announced on 1 November, will include three events from each of the Set Up race series in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and Maryland, as well as the TrySports Triathlon Series.
The series includes sprint, international/Olympic, and half iron distance events. The championship race, to be held in spring 2014, will be an international/Olympic distance event – with awards for overall, masters and age group winners.
The Set Up Cup series will also benefit those sponsors who seek to reach triathletes across the mid-Atlantic and into the south east United States.
