Club awards are championship prizes are presented each year at the Kendal Tri Club Awards and Social Evening, a fun event held in the autumn.

Club members receive awards each year to recognise achievements in many different areas. We also run the Kendal Tri Club Championship Race Series and a new Race Series Participation Award.

See below for full details of the core awards and a table of previous winners.

Club Champions
There is a Kendal Tri Club Championship Race Series which consists of a range of local races. These are announced early each season and they vary in distance from sprint to half ironman. An individual has to complete three races for their results to count in the Championship and bonuses are awarded for wearing Club kit. These provide a great chance to take part alongside fellow members at local events, have fun, win spot prizes and compete for a winner’s trophy.

Best Newcomer
As a newcomer to the club or triathlon the most notable achievement will be recognised with this award. This award is voted for by the committee and isn’t necessarily a results based award.

Most Improved
Again, voted for by the committee this award goes to the athlete showing the greatest improvement across the season. 

Triathlete’s Triathlete
Voted for by other club members the award goes to the standout member for the season, this can be from results or exceptional performances to helping & inspiring others.

Race Achievement

Stirling Spirit Award
A new award for 2019/20 in memory of Chris Stirling, a club member sadly no longer with us. The award is designed to hopefully capture Chris’ sense of adventure, made from locally sourced & sustainable materials we hope it represents the environment & terrain he liked to race.
The award is presented to a club member who has had a special achievement or made a notable contribution to the club. Not specifically race or result driven it is hoped we can award this for inspirational, coaching or dedication achievements too.
