You can enter any SheROX Triathlon as an individual, or as part of a 2 or 3 person relay team ("Category"). Within the Individual Category, all SheROX Triathlons will offer Age-Group, Buddy Wave, Survivor Wave, Elite Amateur and Elite Pro Divisions. You can enter any SheROX Duathlon as an individual in the Age Group Division.
Age Group Division
This is the division where most participants register. Age groups are broken down into five-year increments (for example, 20-24, 25-29, etc). Participants in the Age Group Division will start in waves with other participants in their age group (although there may be multiple Age Groups in a wave, and there may be multiple waves of a particular Age Group), and will be eligible for Age Group awards. The Age Group waves will start after the Elite Pro and Elite Amateur Division waves.
Elite Amateur Division
The Elite Amateur Division is designed to enable fast amateur triathletes to start near the front of the race. The Elite Amateur Division will start two minutes after the Elite Pro wave.
In order to compete in the Elite Amateur Division, you must provide proof of a top ten overall women’s finish in a USAT sanctioned race in 2009, 2010 or 2011. If you participate in the Elite Amateur Division, you will not be eligible for Age-Group awards.
Buddy Wave Division
If you want to complete the race with another participant who is not in your age group (mom, sister, friend), the Buddy Wave is for you. Buddy Waves will be the last waves, and Buddy Wave participants will not be eligible for awards.
We are also offering a Survivor Wave in most of our races. If you are a cancer survivor and wish to compete in this wave, please select the appropriate box as part of the registration process. There will be Survivor Wave awards, but participants in the Survivor Wave are not eligible for Age Group or Elite awards.
Elite Pro Division
The SheROXTriathlons will include an Elite Pro Division. Participants in the Elite Pro Division will get to start in the Elite Pro wave, which will be the first wave. In order to compete in the Elite Pro Division, you must provide one of the following:
If you participate in the Elite Pro Division, you will not be eligible for Age Group awards.
Afraid of the swim? Haven't ridden a bike since 5th grade? Bad knees and can't run? Participate as part of a relay team! Recruit one or two friends or family members to help you with the parts of the race that you'd rather not do. Relay teams consist of two or three members. For two-person teams, one person must do two of the legs. For three-member teams, each person does one leg. Form mother/daughter teams, teams with members of your book club, your old college roommates or other women you work with. Or come up with your own team theme! All relay team members must register and sign the waiver.
