Super League Triathlon (SLT) has proudly announced their 2018-19 season schedule, consisting of five Championship rounds as well as two Qualifier events. The Qualifiers will take place in the iconic triathlon heartlands of Poznan (Poland) and Penticton (Canada), setting the tone for what will be a gripping season ahead.
The Championship events will be held in five unique locations across Europe and Asia Pacific, showcasing pristine beaches, epic terrains and historical landmarks. The five locations for the 2018-19 season are: Jersey (UK), Malta, Mallorca (Spain, in collaboration with host venue partner Rafa Nadal Sports Centre), Singapore and Australia.
After successful globally televised pilot races in Jersey and Hamilton Island (Australia) last year, SLT will be bringing their innovative, action-packed triathlon league to a globally engaged Triathlon fan base of over 590 million people with races across four continents.
The newly introduced Championship series will kick off in Jersey on 29th September, with big names competing including the Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee (GBR), Flora Duffy (BER), Richard Murray (RSA), Henri Schoeman (RSA), Mario Mola (ESP), Ashleigh Gentle (AUS), Nicola Spirig (SUI) and Katie Zaferes (USA).
The league will continue in Malta (27-28 October), Mallorca (3-4 November) and Singapore (23-24 February 2019), with the final event held in Australia (16-17 March 2019).
SLT sees the top 50 (25 male and 25 female) triathletes from around the world compete to discover who can own the bragging rights as the best all-round triathlete of the season.
Two-time Olympic gold medallist Alistair Brownlee said:
“It’s great to kick off the Super League Triathlon season close to home. There was such a great crowd in Jersey last year; this new format of triathlon makes for some great racing and is really entertaining to watch, so I’m excited for a big turnout and to see what I can do in September.”
