RBC Super League Triathlon Jersey returns for a third edition this weekend (28-29 September), with some of the sport’s biggest stars arriving for a weekend of epic racing and ruthless competition.

Super League is ‘trivalry’ at its finest, with the athletes nicknaming the dynamic series ’The Hunger Games of Triathlon’. This Championship Series will see the likes of Jonny Brownlee, Georgia Taylor-Brown, Rachel Klamer and Mario Mola fighting to dethrone reigning SLT Champions and current ITU World Champions Katie Zaferes and Vincent Luis.

Thanks to the innovative race formats of SLT, unpredictability is the only certainty in this race, with athletes needing to be on perfect form in each discipline and every transition.

The Pro racing weekend consists of Saturday Heats, where two groups of men and two groups of women will take on the Shortened Enduro (swim-bike-run x2, non-stop), with the Top 15 men and Top 15 women making it through to the brutal Enduro Finals (swim-bike-run x3, non-stop) on Sunday.

The Pros may be the focal point of the weekend but beyond the professional races, RBC Super League Triathlon Jersey is home to a host of Age Group events for all abilities, as well as Corporate Team Enduros, the RBC Race For The Kids fun run, and a spectacular new Fan Zone that’s bigger and better than ever.
