New for 2021/22, para-triathletes will be able to compete for points in a stand alone medal table at the Duathlon and Sprint Triathlon Championships. Athletes of all classifications (PTWC, PTS2-5 and PTVI) will compete in the existing events, with modifications made to the course and transition where necessary. A factor system has been determined and this will be applied to the finishing times of para-athletes to create a male and female para-triathlon podium, with points being awarded to first, second and third placed finishers.
