School-Based Teams

Following our successful debut in 2017, the 2018 Maritime De Luna Du Youth Duathlon will again offer awards for school-based teams.  We encourage EVERY athlete to register as a member of their school team.  School awards will recognize school teams for the aggregate performance of athletes registered as part of the team.  Each athlete completes the full event and also competes for individual age group awards.  The top two scoring schools will receive a school trophy.  Team scores will be based on the six best-performing athletes on each team, although the number of members is not limited.  Athletes should attend the school for which they are competing.  Homeschool students may form as many or as few teams as desired, but should pre-register by contacting yms@trigulfcoast.org.  Students may join their school’s team during registration (if their school is not listed, request that it be added by e-mailing yms@trigulfcoast.org).  Schools (or groups of their students) may also preregister to field a team until February 20.  A pre-paid entry fee of $150 will register up to 7 athletes (i.e., 6@$25 + 1 free).  Additional athletes can be pre-paid at $25 per athlete.   For further information, see our full team instructions.
