It’s the off-season, which means one thing in elite racing… Super League Triathlon! And what a spectacle this supremely popular race series has been so far, from a new London course for the opening race; phenomenal performances from our GB Tokyo medallists, including three wins from three for Jess Learmonth; and an absolute corker of a closing race to come in Malibu this coming weekend.

What is the Eliminator?
The Eliminator is the first-ever format raced in Super League. It tests the resilience, stamina and velocity of the athletes in a pressure-cooker environment where field position proves key over timing. There are three rounds of swim-bike-run with a short break in between each for the athletes to reset their equipment.
What is SLT Teams?
