Rankings
HOW DOES MY RANKING GET CALCULATED?
Our system uses pace setters to determine a par time for each race. Every race has a unique par time, based on the athletes who competed. Because each race is unique, you may receive a higher score in one race, even if you consider your finish time in another race to be better. Your score is determined by a par time, which is based on the calculated times of the pace setters.

This means that if John is a pace setter and he finished a race this year in 1:30:00, we can find his calculated time. If his score from last year was 95.234, we would divide it by 100 to get .95234. Then, we multiply that by his finish time, which would be 90 minutes. 90 x .95234 = 85.7106.

SO WHAT ARE PACE SETTERS?
In 2014, a pace setter was any athlete who received an overall ranking in the previous year. A calculated time is determined for each pace setter. This is calculated by taking their overall score from the previous year, dividing it by 100, and then multiplying that number by their finish time (converted into minutes) for the current race. This means that if John is a pace setter and he finished a race

HOW MANY PACE SETTERS ARE THERE?
It is based on the number of athletes who compete. Some races may have five; some may have 50-plus.

HOW DO I GET A SCORE FOR MY RACE?
Everyone&rsquo;s score for the race is determined by the par time,which is the average calculated time of the middle 60 percent of the pace setters.

Par time is calculated by dropping the top 20 percent and bottom 20 percent of all the pace setters &mdash; only the middle 60 percent is averaged together. If there are 100 pace setters in a race, the top 20 and bottom 20 pace setters are not included, and the remaining 60 percent pace setters&rsquo; calculated times are averaged together to create the par time.

After the par time is calculated, the time of every participant in the race is compared against the par time. If the par time of John&rsquo;s race is 80 minutes, and he finished in 90 minutes, his score would be 88.88 (80 / 90 = .88888 * 100 = 88.888).

Now that you know how your score is determined in each race, it is important to know a few other things:
&bull; For triathlon rankings, your top three scores will be averaged to create your final ranking.
&bull; For duathlon, aquathlon, aquabike or off-road triathlon rankings, your top two scores will be averaged for your final ranking.
&bull; Women receive a 10 percent &ldquo;gender grade&rdquo; in the final rankings. This grade is not included in the pace setter formula. Women pace setters are calculated using their raw score (before the 10 percent).
&bull; To be included in the final rankings, you must have been a member on Nov. 1 of that year. So, for 2014 rankings, you must have been a member of USA Triathlon on Nov. 1, 2014. The deadline to report corrections to USA Triathlon is Jan. 31 of each year.
