The top three athletes in each aged-up age group will qualify for the 2019 ITU Long-Distance Duathlon World Championship. The 2019 World Championship will occur in Zofingen, Switzerland. Qualified athletes will receive an email from USA Triathlon within two weeks after the Powerman Michigan event.
At Powerman Michigan, athletes will race in their appropriate age groups based on their age as of Dec. 31, 2018. Awards will be issued based on those results. If an athlete "ages up" into another age group in 2019, a separate set of results will be issued accounting for those athletes who aged up and Team USA slots will be awarded based on these results. So their finish time will be compared to those athletes in the older age group. For example, if John Doe is going to be 49 years old by Dec. 31, 2018, he will age-up up into the 50-54 age group for the 2019 World Championships since he will be 50 years old by Dec. 31, 2019. Thus, for Team USA qualifying purposes, his time at the qualification event will be compared to the men currently in the 50-54 age group.
