2016 Triathlon Forms are Available on the Show Documents page

The Triathlon Chairman will handle the automatic entry in the Triathlon Conformation Class. Entries in any regular conformation class, obedience class or lure coursing stake are the responsibility of the owner. NOTE: There will be a $10 entry fee required for the Triathlon. Please send with the entry form. This must be received by the entry deadline of March 23, 2016 or your dog will not be eligible to compete in the 2016 AWC Triathlon.

 

The AWC Triathlon competition was developed to recognize Whippets that excel in three areas of competition: conformation, lure coursing and obedience. The 22nd annual competition is open to all Whippets entered in 

Triathlon/Versatility conformation, obedience and lure coursing at the 2016 AWC National Specialty. There will be 10 placement awards.

AWC National Triathlon Rules and Scoring

Click HERE to download a copy of the AWC Triathlon Rules with a Scoring Example

The Triathlon will utilize a ranking system identical to the Versatility competition. Dogs will be given ranks based on their scores in the respective competitions. The ranks will be averaged with the lowest total average winning.

Conformation: The Triathlon/Versatility Conformation judge this year is Mr. Charles Roberts, Strebor Whippets.

Lure Coursing: The AWC National trial will be held on Sunday, April 24th and will be an ASFA trial.

Obedience: Only one obedience class will count toward the final Triathlon rank and that class must be declared on the entry form below.

 

NOTE NEW RULE CHANGES FOR 2016:

1). If your dog has a title or legs toward a title in UKC, CKC, AKC or any other Obedience titling program, you may not enter a lower class and utilize that score for this competition. If you do, your dog will be disqualified from the competition.

2). All dogs must be handled by their owner in each event (including conformation). If you have multiple dogs entered, you may use a handler for the group portion of conformation. NO professional handlers unless they co-own the dog being handled.
