ABOUT THE MIDEAST REGION CLUB RACING SERIES (MERCRS)
MERCRS is an annual race series sponsored by the USA Triathlon Mideast Region and its Regional Council. The mission of the Mideast Region and its Regional Council is to encourage the multisport lifestyle and grow our sport by promoting USAT Triathlon registered clubs and USA Triathlon sanctioned regional events. MERCRS is organized and sponsored to encourage racing and friendly competition among USA Triathlon registered clubs within the Mideast Region.
Clubs participate and score points in any USAT sanctioned race within the Mideast region from April 1st through October 31st provided they meet the race minimum requirements. Points are tallied by a club representative and submitted within ten days of each race. Top scoring clubs earn awards within club divisions based on the size of the club’s membership.
At stake is nothing less than regional bragging rights and the prize purse awarded to the teams that accumulate the most team points over the annual series. The Series provides clubs an opportunity to earn funds, and it helps create team camaraderie within the club while competing with other clubs. Furthermore, clubs receive opportunities to recognize and promote their clubs and club members throughout the season.
