Squad Goals

Ironman Global Rankings

2024 Goal: Top 100 in Division V

736 out of 2713 clubs in Division V (as of 6/2/24)

Ironman events award points to age group competitors registered under clubs. The better you perform in your age group the more points you get. But everyone gets points just for finishing an official 70.3 or Ironman. Details of the competition here. Division V is for clubs with less than 25 participants (i.e. not total membership but number of members that compete in an Ironman branded event in that calendar year) which TCM is currently classified under.

2023 = 219 out of 4981 clubs

2022 = 532 out of 4808 clubs

TriClub Podium Awards

2024 Goal: A Top 5 finish!

2023 Santa Cruz 70.3 - 9th out of 161

2023 Morro Bay 70.3 - 21st out of 175

TriClub Podium Awards are an on-site competition that honors the top five clubs with a physical and digital award at each IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 race. Club points are calculated with points being added from all athletes from their respective club. We have a chance at three local races in 2024. Morro Bay 70.3, Santa Cruz 70.3 and IM California where could potentially attain the honor.

***NEW*** USAT Club Ranking Awards

2024 Goal: Top 3 in Division 4 (2-75 members)

USA Triathlon has a new competition in 2024 which club affiliated athletes collect ranking points at USAT sanctioned events throughout the year. (UPDATE: this might not happen now because USAT is a hot, broke mess).
