The Pay-2-Place Program was created to compensate those DFW Tri Club members who podium (1st thru 3rd in their respective division plus a bonus for placing 1st thru 3rd overall) at designated races and while racing in official DFW Tri Club kit/uniform (jersey top + short). IT IS EASIER TO PODIUM THAN YOU THINK! Only official kit/uniform qualify for this program, any other combination DOES NOT. In addition to providing a link to the race results and race site, you will also be required to attach a photograph taken during the race and after with your prize. Results must be filed by completing the online Pay-2-Place results form no later than 30 days from the date of the race. All winners will be announced at the DFW Tri Club year-end bash! Hope to see you there…

PAYOUTS (aka “Show me the money!”)
Payouts will be based on placing and the distance of the race (not distance you traveled TO the race). Olympics are indexed at 1.0 with other races having a multiplier that will increase or decrease the payout as follows:
Sprint – .75
Olympic – 1.0
70.3 – 1.5
Ironman – 2.0
55 Series – .5
The payouts themselves shake-out as follows:
+ 1st in division – $50
+ 2nd in division – $35
+ 3rd in division – $25
Example: A DTC member who finishes 1st in their age group at Austin 70.3 would earn $50 x 1.5 for a total of $75.
Anyone finishing in the top 3 OVERALL will earn the following:
+ 1st age grouper overall – $100
+ 2nd age grouper overall – $70
+ 3rd age grouper overall – $50
Example: A DTC member who finishes 1st OVERALL at Austin 70.3 would earn $100 x 1.5 for a total of $150.
Ironman World Championships, Kona — If you participate in the Ironman World Championship in KONA, and you wear the DFW Tri Club kit (bottom + top or trip suit), for the entire race (not just the bike or run), you will receive a $250 bonus — even if you do not end up on the podium! You must wear the DFW Tri Club kit/uniform in both the bike & run portion of the race to be eligible.
NOTE: Current year payouts are limited to $200/athlete EXCEPT Title Sponsor races excluded. In 2017, the 2Skin Pay-2-Place Race is Tri Waco, so payouts for this race are excluded from the $200 limit. (More Title Sponsor races may be added, stay tuned!.)
The responsibility for collecting the P2P money will rest squarely on the shoulders of the winners. Members will fill out the requisite information which MUST be completed within 30 days of the event for which you are making the claim. The form MUST include the following:
+ Your Name
+ Race Name
+ Divisional or overall place
+ A link to the results
+ A link to the photo site and an attached photo of you at the race in uniform
For questions on any of these steps, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
+ All winners MUST be current/paying members of DFW Tri Club when they hit the podium!!! No retroactive awards!!!
+ If an application/prize is found to be false in any way, payment will not be made, and membership will be revoked.
+ All racers must be in DFW Tri Club gear which is defined as a top and bottom (tri suite also qualifies). Hat/Visors and/or socks alone or shorts alone do NOT qualify.
+ Only races in the program are eligible for Pay-2-Place winnings.
+ Winners have 30 days from the completion of the race to claim their money.
+ Only the actual winner can collect the money. No proxy collection! Checks will be mailed to the address on file with membership (keep your member profile up-to-date!).
+ Claims must be submitted using the web form. Verbal requests, email requests, requests written on a napkin in crayon, and notes from your mommy will NOT get you paid.
* We would also like to thank our friends at the LA Tri Club for allowing us to shamelessly steal and plagerize this great program for our folks to enjoy. Cheers Paul!
