The Audax Altitude Awards, presented annually, aim to encourage participation in hilly events and to offer a challenge for those who do not ride the longest events but enjoy climbing.
AAA points are allocated at a rate of 1 point for every 1,000m of climbing, rounded to the nearest quarter point, so:
- 2,124m of climbing = 2.00 AAA points
- 2,125m of climbing = 2.25 AAA points
More information about AAA point calculation here.
Where riding a Calendar or Permanent event earns AAA points, the allocation is shown on the relevant events listing.
For DIY and Extended Calendar Events, the points allocations may be calculated by the Audax UK delegate after the ride.
