Recently we announced the addition of new masters divisions for all events and team-size categories at Storm the Trent. After hearing what you had to say, we've made a few updates:
- As announced, the masters divisions are open to teams on which all racers are age 45 years or more
- This remains an optional choice - you may still race in the regular 'open' categories if you choose
- Gender sub-categories among masters teams will be offered, but only where there are at least two teams registered per gender class. If there are not 2 or more teams in each masters gender class (all-male, all-female and coed), they will be grouped into a singular masters division for each team-size category (ie. Masters teams of 2 and Masters teams of 4)
Regarding the last point - while our goal is to try and create category opportunities for as many groups as possible, historical data shows that some some would not be filled across all gender classes, age categories and team sizes for all 3 events at STT. However, this new Masters Division will reduce the size of some traditional team categories, and put lots more prizes on the awards table!
