T100 is triathlon,

redefined

20 of the world’s best professional triathletes – women and men – will battle it out over a season of 8 whirlwind 100km races, in iconic locations around the globe. With a 2km swim, 80km bike and 18km run at each race, it’s a true test of the ultimate triathlon talent.

The season leads the road to the T100 Grand Final in November 2024 where we will crown the first-ever T100 World Champions.

2024 Athletes

The highest placings in the 2023 PTO World Rankings qualified the first 16 men and women for the inaugural 2024 T100 Triathlon World Tour. These top-ranked athletes are joined by 4 ‘Hot Shots’ per gender – stars of the sport whose proven pedigree makes them a serious threat to upset the standings. Each race will also feature a number of Wildcard athletes – picked based on recent performances or meteoric rises through the PTO World Rankings.

The T100 Series

With 8 races in the 2024 T100 season, each contracted pro will need to race a minimum of 5 events plus the T100 Grand Final. The sum of each athlete’s 4 best point-scoring performances over the T100 season will considered, with the highest total being the athlete crowned the first-ever T100 World Champion. For those athletes who are also racing the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, the minimum number of races required is 3 plus the T100 Grand Final.

Points

20 athletes of each gender will line up for each race. Based on their own race selection, this will be a mix of contracted athletes and Hot Shots with Wildcards filling any remaining spaces. Every finishing position earns points, from 35 points for 1st place to 1 point for 20th. To spice up the climax of the season, the T100 Grand Final will offer even more points to keep every athlete fighting for each position.

If athletes are tied on points, their order on the T100 points table is decided based upon head-to-head performances of each athlete over the series, or if still equal, their PTO World Ranking points. Athletes who do not start (DNS), do not finish (DNF) or are disqualified (DSQ) receive 0 points.

If the points, prize money and T100 World Champion titles weren’t enough, there’s also the opportunity for athletes to earn their T100 contract for 2025 – or the jeopardy of losing their place in the series if they don’t perform. The top 10 athletes in the T100 standings at the end of the season will guarantee themselves a T100 contract in 2025, whether their a 2024 contracted athlete, Hotshot or a Wildcard.

The next 6 contracted athletes for 2025 will be decided through PTO World Rankings, the contracts going to the 6 highest-ranked athletes who haven’t already earned a contract regardless of whether they’ve raced T100 or not. The final 4 contracts will go to Hotshot athletes.

PTO WRS Scoring For

While the simplified scoring system for T100 will decide the winner of the T100 Triathlon World Series, athletes will also receive scores for their PTO World Ranking based on the current PTO World Ranking System rules. This allows T100 athletes to factor in the PTO World Rankings alongside those doing other professional races.

 

All T100 races will be classified as the highest ‘Diamond Tier’ for PTO World Rankings, this is due to the events meeting the criteria for $500,000 prize money when dividing the end-of-series prize pool (and athlete contracts) among the races. This is the same method used to allocate tiers for the Challenge Family World Bonus and the Ironman® Pro Series.
