Founded in 2017, Super League Triathlon (SLT) is the pinnacle of the sport on the world’s stage, delivering game-changing formats – mixing up long and short course athletes – in a series of fast-paced events with unpredictable outcomes that culminate in the crowning of the best and most versatile male and female triathletes in the world.
Over the course of the season, the top male and female triathletes from around the world battle it out for the crown to become the best all-round triathlete. There are three means by which these top athletes qualify for the Championship Series, equally split between male and female competitors: automatic qualification from the previous SLT season (20 places), wildcard qualification (10 places at one given time), and ‘Golden Ticket’ success at the SLT Qualifiers in Poznan and Penticton (20 places). Pros from all over the world can race to be in with a chance to qualify for the main Championship Series events.

“If you’re not moving forwards, if you’re not pushing the envelope or testing what is possible then in reality you’re not just standing still – you’re sliding backwards.”
Chris “Macca” McCormack | Co-Founder & Vice Chairman
“Speed is youth, long distance racing is for retired people with time on their hands – if you want excitement, if you want the best athletes in the world pushing themselves beyond what any of us think possible then you have to move away from long distance and think differently.”
Leonid Boguslavsky | Co-Founder & Chairman
“Triathlon is the most demanding sport on the planet with athletes competing at the highest level over multiple distances. Having competed in many races and always crossed the finishing line you build up a certain resilience. Once you’ve pushed through these barriers it’s possible to transfer this mindset into the business world. Hours and hours of training to hit goals in races is just like identifying objectives in business and applying the steadfast determination to succeed.”
