Races › Super League Triathlon Jersey 2021
Super League Triathlon will head to Jersey for the fourth time as the spiritual home of the Championship Series welcomes back the best athletes in the sport. Jersey is a firm favourite on the Super League calendar, with many of the athletes describing it as their favourite race location in the world.
The community engagement and fantastic support from the local population, as well as a spectacular course, have helped make Jersey synonymous as a global triathlon destination. After swimming in the spectacular Elizabeth Marina, closed only for Super League events, the athletes have to run up a steep ramp into transition.
The bike course is one of the most challenging and technical on the circuit, demanding power surges and world-class handling to navigate. Spectators pack the course for the run before a spectacular finish line. Jersey will be the third stop of four in the 2021 Championship Series, meaning a jostle for position ready for the finale in Malibu, which will crown the champions.
The Enduro is considered the most brutal format of all. Requiring endurance and tactics, the Enduro is a non-stop burst of nine back-to-back triathlon disciplines without any breaks. The easiest way to think about it is swim-bike-run repeated continuously three times in a row.
A focus on speed is a key demand of the Enduro because any athlete who falls more than 90 seconds behind the leader will be eliminated.
There are two Short Chutes up for grabs – the first for the fastest athlete over the opening swim and transition and the second for the first athlete to complete the opening bike stage and transition (all taken across the mount lines). Short Chutes are to be taken on the third and final run.
Athletes have a mass start. SBRx3 without breaks. The winner is the first athlete across the finish line upon completion of the entire race sequence.
Do you want to know how close you can compare times to some of the very highest level performers on the planet in the same location, with the same conditions and carried along by the same roaring crowd? Then the Age Group Races in Jersey’s St Helier are for you! View Age Group E-Brief ›
The Age Group races will take place on the morning of Sunday, 19th of September. Once the racing is completed, you’ll be greeted with a Super League Triathlon goodie bag, finishers medal and awards ceremony.

What is the Championship Series?
Super League Triathlon’s Championship Series is the season of races in which our athletes earn points towards the overall leaderboard. At the end of each season, the leaderboard decides who are crowned as the male and female Super League Triathlon Championship Series winners. The winners take home the coveted Boguslavskiy Trophy.
There are four events in the 2021 Championship Series, with amazing destinations around the world. Super League is the only globally broadcast series that answers the question: Who is the fastest triathlete in the world?
How do the races work?
Each race weekend features a star-studded men’s and women’s race, with everything on the line making it a nerve-wracking day for the athletes and compelling viewing for fans. All 20 men and 20 women to the start line hoping to get the better of one another across whichever of Super League’s unique race formats are being employed on that day.
The events have 1 of 4 formats – Enduro, Triple Mix, Equalizer or Eliminator – depending on the course and the racing excitement factor. And this is where Super League is truly unique. Our standard distances are:
Swim: 300m Bike: 4km Run: 1.6km
How do athletes score points?
Points are primarily accumulated according to the finish position of each weekend of the Championship Series. There are also cash bonuses to be accrued along the way for the fastest in the swim, bike and run disciplines across the Series. To see detailed race results or overall standings, please head over to leaderboards. The instant results may contain minor errors. They are finalized within 24 hours after the race takes place.
How many points do you get for a race?
The top 15 athletes score points across the regular Championship Series weekends. It is 15 for the winner down to 1 point for 15th place.
What’s the prize money on offer?
Super League offers a huge prize purse, which ensures the best talent on the start line and seriously competitive racing. There are prizes both for event finishes and the overall Championship Series leaderboard and the winners of the various coloured jerseys. Super League will announce its prize structure ahead of the start of the 2021 Championship Series.
On top of all that, every Super League athlete is guaranteed to be treated like a true professional. That means Super League pays for all flights, accommodation, food and provides all-around support, bike mechanics, physiotherapy, marketing, promotion, social media support and much more.
