2.All Athletes who were not qualified yet  for the TWC 2021 or are newly registered for the TWC 2022 event will have to follow the rule as follows:

  • You need 1 Trifecta between the period From November 4th 2019 to November 4th 2021 OR November 8th 2021 – November 3rd 2022.

You can sign up prior to earning your Trifecta but must complete it prior to November 1st 2021. Anyone signed up for this event who has not completed a TRIFECTA will be removed from Trifecta World Championship ranking WITHOUT a refund on November 1st 2022. By committing to this event, you are committing to a TRIFECTA. Be sure to sign up for your races if you have not done so already. 

Elite, Age Group, and Open racers are welcome. You must be 18 years old on race day to be able to participate in the Trifecta World Championship. This event is meant to celebrate all Trifecta Tribe members. Racers will test their grit to earn unique Trifecta World Championship finisher swag.

Elite and Age Group racers will be eligible for Trifecta World Championship awards and prizes. Rankings will be based on racers’ cumulative time across all three distances. Sunday’s Beast race of the Elite category will feature a staggered Start: racers’ start times will be determined based on their combined time from the Sprint and Super. 

  • The racer with the fastest combined time will start first. 
  • The remaining racers will start based on the time difference between them and the racer with the fastest combined time (For example Joe’s combined race time for the Sprint and super is 2:05:30 and Tom’s time is 2:06:00. This means Joe will start the beast first and Tom will be released 30-seconds later).
  • Any Racer with a combined time more than 15 minutes slower than the leader will be released 15 minutes after the start. 
  • All AGE GROUP brackets will have their own start waves for the Beast.

Prize Money

In addition to the title, top ELITE racers will be battling for their share of $30,000 of prize money.
