Super League Triathlon’s blockbuster 2021 Championship Series kicks off in style as London plays host to the best triathletes in the world. West India Quay provides the stunning backdrop for the stars of swim-bike-run to take on Super League’s amazing formats outdoors for the first time in almost two years.

The event will set the tone for the rest of the Championship Series, with a fast start essential for all those harbouring hopes of challenging for the podium come the end of the month.

The water at West India Quay will offer a spectacular vantage point, but the real challenge for the athletes will come on dry land. A tight and technical course will be made all the more tricky by the presence of cobblestones in some areas, testing adaptability and biking handling to the max.

The race will be the first time that Super League has hosted a Championship Series event in the UK, and with so many top-level British athletes set to compete and an eager home crowd, the stage is set for a spectacular event.

Race Format

Triple Mix

Master of Versatility

Throwing the traditional swim-bike-run sequence out the window, the Triple Mix shuffles the disciplines over 3 stages. It tests the versatility of the athletes and whether they can keep track of what comes next in the heat of battle.

Mistakes in this format are costly as every second counts on Stage 1 and 2 as they define Stage 3’s pursuit start. At the end of each stage, athletes have a few minutes to reset themselves and their equipment.

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. Tactics for survival are fierce and athletes are eliminated from the race if they fall more than 90 seconds behind.

Stage 1 Athletes have a mass start and race a swim-bike-run.

swim 300m
bike 4km
run 1.6km

Stage 2 Athletes have a mass start and race a run-bike-swim.

run 1.6km
bike 4km
swim 300m

Stage 3 Based on their times over those races, it’s a Pursuit Style Start for the final bike-swim-run. The winner is the first person across the line at the end of Stage 3.
