With one race left in the 2016 Heart of America series, Tami Fiala and Dave Steines top the standings.
Throughout the season, all athletes who participate in an HOA race get points for each race they do. At the end of the season, we recognize the top three overall point winners, top masters, and first place in each age group. The more you race, regardless to some extent, of where you place, the higher your potential standings.
Each HOA champ gets the opportunity to race in a special Champions wave at Cyman on Sept. 18. The top athletes in the wave, in both male and female divisions, win free entries to HOA races in 2017.
Participants of any age could claim the top prize, as times are age-adjusted according the formula used by U.S. Track & Field.
The results will be finalized after the Camp Courageous Triathlon Aug. 7. In addition to being the 2016 Championship race, Cyman is also the first race of 2017, with those points counting toward next season.
