These "par" times are based upon a formula of the top average finishers in the race along with some estimates of the timing for the race along with dropping some exceptional performances. If a finisher finishes faster than the 2 hours than they would get Email Database greater than 100, if they finish slower than less than 100. The formula is an inverse of the numbers so estimated "par" time divided by the athletes time or Par time/Athlete time. So for our example you would take the total minutes of the par time which is 120 and divide it by the total minutes of the athlete time which is.
You would get a score of 88.89. This score would then be factored into your yearly national ranking. You have to race in 3 races for the year to be eligible for a Email Database national ranking. At the end of the year you can go into the USAT site and discover your national rankings in Email Database your given age group. This is also a way to discover your improvement over the years. I did not start getting into the rankings until 2014 when I discovered this system.
You can see that I had improvement in overall ranking but also in the yearly score. I see this as I am getting closer to the "par" time for my races. National Championships: I have been primarily focused on finishing an ironman and then ultimately qualifying for Email Database Kona, but there are a lot of other ways to compete in triathlon. One of these ways is to be in the some of the national championship races sponsored by USAT.
