Races › Super League Triathlon Malibu 2021
One of the world’s most iconic triathlons will host Super League racing for the first time as the beautiful Pacific Coast welcomes the best in the world for a spectacular finale to the 2021 Championship Series. The event will not only be Super League’s first in Malibu but also a first visit to the USA for the sport’s most exciting race brand.
California is known as the modern birthplace of triathlon, and Malibu is at the heart of that, with this year’s event seeing it celebrate its 35th edition – and a first as part of Super League.
With such history and tradition, and with so much on the line, the season-ending event promises to produce a thrilling climax to the Championship Series with the titles – and the prize purses – being decided. Malibu will feature an ocean swim off of the stunning Zuma Beach with the bike and run legs taking place on the Pacific Coast Highway.
There is sure to be a significant crowd in attendance and a smattering of celebrities with red hot racing guaranteed with everything on the line.

The Eliminator is the first-ever format raced in Super League. 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.
However, there is also a cunning twist – a pre-defined number of athletes are eliminated after each discipline of every stage making positioning crucial.
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.
3 Eliminations: 1 after bike | 2 after run - 1 after each lap
