How to watch the supertri E World Championship

Ready for some exciting, action-packed triathlon racing? Here's how to watch the supertri E World Championship on the weekend...

Supertri – formerly known as Super League Triathlon – is back this month with its new E World Championship in London.

It promises to be an exciting few hours of racing with some of short-course triathlon’s biggest names taking part.

Below, we tell you everything you need to know about the event and explain how you can watch the action unfold.

What is the supertri E World Championship?

The supertri E World Championship is the newest incarnation of the former Super League Triathlon Arena Games.

It sees athletes compete using both real-life and virtual racing (using Zwift) within an arena environment. That means the swimming will take place in a pool, while the cycling and running will be on smart bikes and treadmills.

This format used to take place over a few locations, but in 2024 it’s been reimagined into a one-day World Championship event in partnership with World Triathlon.

The racing begins with a number of qualifying heats, which will result with just 10 men and 10 women making it through to the finals.

The first round of heats will see athletes complete two rounds of swim-bike-run, with a short rest period between them.

There’ll then be a pursuit start for the second round, where the triathlete with the fastest time will start first, followed by the rest of the field with a time gap mirroring the results from round one.

The finals will then take place over three stages, beginning with swim-bike-run, followed by run-bike-swim and finishing with swim-bike-run again.

Ahead of the third and final stage, athlete’s times from the first two stages of the finals will be added together, with the quickest athlete starting first in the final stage in a pursuit format.
