Super League Triathlon is back in California with a simple aim: to make short course racing cool again in the USA. And SLT’s incredible star athletes and frenetic formats are the perfect formula for success.

The stunning shores of Zuma Beach provide an awe inspiring backdrop for the best athletes on the planet to go toe-to-toe with an unpredictable sea swim really changing things up.

The trip to Malibu is a third weekend of racing in a row for the athletes, and with tiredness creeping in mistakes will cost dearly.

Th event weekend is also host to the biggest fund raising triathlon in the world, the star studded Malibu Triathlon, which has already earned more than $16m for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

One of the original and best triathlons, Malibu attracts thousands of competitors every year, and a sprinkling of Hollywood stars keen to get on the action.

Previous events have seen the likes of Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lopez race, and the addition of Super League Triathlon’s Championship Series event makes the chance to compete even more spectacular. Simply head over to the Malibu Triathlon website for entry details.

Race Format

Eliminator

Master of Tenacity

The Eliminator was the first-ever format raced in Super League, and has been given a fresh new twist. 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. The total times from Stages 1 and 2 define a pursuit start for Stage 3.

However, there is also a cunning twist – the last three athletes across the Finish Line are eliminated after both Stages 1 and 2. There are no predefined eliminations during Stage 3, though the 90 second rule is in play, meaning athletes are eliminated from the race if they fall more than 90 seconds behind the leader after any discipline.

There are three Short Chutes up for grabs – for the first athlete across the Mount Line after the swim on Stage 1, for the first athlete across the Mount Line after the bike on Stage 1 and for the first athlete across the Finish Line at the end of Stage 1. Short Chutes are won for a Team and awarded to an athlete during the race by their Team Manager. Short Chutes are to be taken on the first lap of the run in Stage 3. No team can win more than one Short Chute.
