Segment Challenge

Summer Strava Challenge

Because of the coronavirus restrictions we have decided to run a summer segment Challenge in addition to the winter one.

The challenge is for Chester Triathlon Club members only. To join the challenge you need to be a member of the Chester Tri Strava club.

You can ask to join this here.

Everyone in the Strava club will automatically be in the challenge if they tackle a relevant segment.

For questions and comments contact bike@nullchestertri.org.uk

Only current Chester Triathlon Club members will be accepted for membership of the Strava club. If you use a different name on Strava please email bike@nullchestertri.org.uk before asking to join the Strava club.

There will be a different segment each month from May to September.

Given the coronavirus restrictions the challenge is designed for solo efforts and the first two segments have been selected close to Chester. The club knows that many members are staying close to home for their exercise and we want to make the challenge accessible to as many as possible.

We hope that restrictions will be relaxed before the end of the summer and that we will feel free to select segments further afield from July onwards.

Ride data must be uploaded to Strava before dark on the last day of the relevant month.

Points are awarded according to ranking on each segment. Thirty points for first place, twenty nine for second down to one point for thirtieth. There will be separate rankings for men and women.
