Rules for 2017 Series:

Each individual’s point value will be assigned from each Greater Atlantic Multisport Series and applied to the Greater Atlantic Club Challenge. All individual points apply towards their respective clubs in the Greater Atlantic Club Challenge. Relays or non-conventional events (i.e.—Adventure Race, AquaBike, Open Water Swims) do not count towards rankings. USAT and non-USAT members welcomed to compete. Important: Piranha Sports uses a data driven reporting tool to calculate points. Therefore, it is important for your data to be consistent from race to race in order for the points to be calculated properly for you. For instance, Michael Smith, Mike Smith and Michael "Triathlete" Smith are distinctly different names to a data system and the points will be calculated separately for each distinct name. As well, if you do some races as a Clyde and some as an Age Group, your points will be split accordingly to the division for each race. You may have a total of 20 points, but 12 may be as a Clyde and 8 as an Age Group. As well, using different ID’s will create separate rankings and we will not be able to combine these once created.  In addition, athletes may mix up their races to maximize their point earning potential prior to each race start and these points count to the overall series points (i.e. - triathlon or duathlon).  By doing so, one may also try and achieve the top ranking for overall or age group against all types of racers or races. 

Piranha Sports has the right to modify rules and prizes as necessary.

The Greater Atlantic Multisport Series (GAMS) and Greater Atlantic Club Challenge (GACC) winners will be announced at the last series race. Awards are given to the Top 5 overall in each gender and first overall in each division.  Two requirements for awarding the winners of GAMS are as follows: Winning the division AND having finished in 4+ GAMS events.

They also reserve the right to modify as necessary.
