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.
