Three dynamic venues have been chosen for the 2010 race series, each featuring two races. The series will begin in Knoxville Tennessee May 9th, 2010. In Knoxville our Feature Race will be our Olympic Distance Rev ($50,000 Pro Prize Purse). From Knoxville we will work our way back East to Middlebury Connecticut where our Feature Race will be a Half Distance Rev on Sunday June 6th ($100,000 Pro Prize Purse). The climax of our Series will be September 12th where we will offer a tremendous family focused event at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky Ohio. Our Feature Race at Cedar Point will be our Full Distance Rev (140.6)-($150,000 Pro Prize Purse).

Both professional and age group athletes who compete in any of the “featured” series races will have the ability to earn points towards the series and will qualify for the cash prizes.
Race series points will be awarded to athletes at each race based on their overall order of Finish (by time).
•Athletes may compete in any of the three series events in order to be eligible for series ending Prizes.
•You DO NOT need to participate in all Events to be considered for the Series Prize.
•Series races include the Knoxville Olympic Rev / Quassy Half Rev / Cedar Point Full Rev.
•If an athlete starts a series event but DNF’s (Does Not Finish), this race will count toward one (1) of the series events and will earn (0) points.
•If a series event is canceled, for any reason, the series three (3) races will be reduced to a series of two (2) races to be eligible for overall standings and overall series prize money.
•Overall series Prize Money will be paid out to the top five overall age-group men and women.
•Professional Prize money will be paid out to the Top Three Male/ Female Pro’s in the series standings.
•In the case that a series event alters the race course due to weather/safety concerns (ie; changing from a Triathlon to a Duathlon), that event will be awarded ½ points (Example: 1st Place – 500 points will now be worth 250 points)
