Redefining triathlon

It was always the plan – and finally, fingers crossed, Super League Triathlon will achieve that target in 2021. Namely, a condensed, SLT Championship Series featuring the world’s best racing in major world destinations.

Announced here, the 2021 Super League Triathlon Championship Series will take place over four back-to-back weekends in September. With a perfect slot falling after the Tokyo Olympics and before the World Triathlon Series resumes in Bermuda in October, if you like SLT racing, then the month of September is for you.

Not only that – and following the hosting of the Arena Games at the Olympic Park – for the first time, London will host a Championship Series round.

“Back, and bigger than ever.” Absolutely.


World Champions and Olympic stars to race in London, Munich, Jersey and Malibu as Super League Triathlon hits major destinations

Super League Triathlon has today announced its biggest ever Championship Series with the sport’s brightest stars to race in four thrilling events at major destinations around the world.

Super League will move into major cities for the first time with stops in London, Munich and Malibu, as well as a return to Jersey.

Reigning Super League champions Vincent Luis and Katie Zaferes will be back to defend their Championship Series crowns, and will compete against the cream of short course triathlon talent such as Georgia Taylor-Brown, Jonathan Brownlee, Beth Potter and Kristian Blummenfelt.

The four events announced today will take place on back-to-back weekends throughout September, providing audiences with a compelling calendar that delivers greater engagement and a more exciting race Series.

Super League Triathlon’s 2021 Championship Series race calendar is:

  • September 5: London, UK
  • September 12: Munich, Germany
  • September 18: Jersey, Channel Islands
  • September 25: Malibu, USA

There will be 20 female and 20 male athletes competing at each event on a single day of racing over Super League’s exciting formats. As well as the athletes contracted across the Series, the start list for each event will include a small allocation of Wildcard slots to be filled nearer the time.

Racing in London will take place at West India Quay, at the Olympiapark in Munich and at Zuma Beach as part of the Malibu Triathlon, with Jersey’s event set to feature at St Helier for the fourth time. Individual event details and announcements around global broadcast deals will be made in the coming months.

Super League Triathlon CEO, Michael D’hulst, said: “This is a very significant and exciting day, not just for Super League but triathlon as a whole. Super League Triathlon’s 2021 Championship Series brings us closer to where the fans are and this is what we are about – making triathlon a spectator sport.

“To be able to deliver a Championship Series in a condensed time period in the calendar straight after the Olympics and to follow our strategic ambitions to visit major cities in key markets has been a goal we have been working towards since Super League was established just four years ago. Our first Championship Series events in the UK, Germany and the USA are significant milestones.

“Securing the best athletes in the world to race across the Series as we build on the success of the SLT Arena Games to host outdoor events again in iconic locations will help to elevate our sport.”

Multiple Super League Triathlon winner Vincent Luis said: “First of all it is amazing that we can race and Super League puts such effort into us racing.

“Jersey is my favourite venue of all time, and I look forward to seeing what London, Munich and Malibu have to offer. In these kinds of races you enjoy from the start to the finish. It will be a really good build-up to the Olympics and then Super League to enjoy with four races in a row. I can’t wait. Putting the race tyres on the bike, getting the race suits ready…it’s just around the corner.”
