Arena Games Triathlon Powered by Zwift kicks-off a brand new season with a much anticipated debut in Canada. Montreal has a rich history in triathlon, and now looks to the future as the Parc Olympique Sports Centre hosts the greatest athletes in the world, as they battle it out for the chance to be crowned the Triathlon Esports World Champion, thanks to Super League’s unique partnership with World Triathlon.

 

 

Each Arena Games Triathlon regular Series event is competed over heats and a final. Heats will see two stages of swim-bike-run, while, come the final, the fastest 10 pros of the day will race Super League’s unique Arena Games Triathlon format to decide a victor. That means 3 short, sharp and unpredictable stages that all feature swim, bike and run. There is no respite for the athletes, and an added challenge is that the order of the disciplines is shuffled each time. A pursuit style start is adopted for the final stage each time they race.  The swim (200m) takes place in an Olympic sized pool, and the bike (4km), and run (1km), legs on static equipment with the racing realised in the virtual world of Zwift, the world’s leading online training and racing platform. This provides real-time, detailed data insights, allowing you to get closer than ever before to the competitors.

The SLT Arena Games was born during the COVID- 19 pandemic, and has gone from strength to strength, drawing a huge audience thanks to its innovative and exciting indoor race concept. With Arena Games Triathlon powered by Zwift, Super League Triathlon and World Triathlon have taken this concept to the next level. In 2023, the Arena Games Triathlon Championship Series will be held across four events, in four iconic cities. At the Grand Finale, held in London, the overall winners of the series will be named the new Esports Triathlon World Champions.

The 200m swim legs will take place in an Olympic sized pool while the 4km bike and 1km run disciplines are completed on smart trainers and self-powered curved treadmills with the power and speed of the athletes turned into a virtual race via Zwift’s online platform. The bike sections of the races are always non drafting. There is a couple of minutes break between the three stages, each starting at a set time. That will reward those that finish quickest by giving them a longer rest period. The results of the three individual stages will combine to determine the overall winner.

How does the Arena Games Triathlon World Championship Series powered by Zwift work?

The Championship Series events will consist of both heats and finals. At each event athletes will need to qualify for the final race via a heat which will consist of 2 Stages (Swim – Bike – Run / Swim – Bike – Run). The second stage will be held in a pursuit format. Athletes will start in reverse order of their result in stage 1. The athlete with the fastest time will start first, every other athlete will follow with a time gap as per the result of stage 1.

Just 8-10 athletes from the heats (venue de-pendant) will then progress to the final. The final will consist of 3 Stages over Super League’s unique Arena Games Triathlon for-mat (Swim – Bike – Run // Run – Bike – Swim // Swim – Bike – Run).

How does the point scoring work?

The World Champions will be decided via a points system combining the results of the final in London plus each athlete’s best result at one additional Arena Games event. The re-sults also contribute to World Triathlon’s world rankings.

The Series race winners will each receive 250 points, the Championship Finals winners 500 points, decreasing by 7.5% for each position thereafter. The Arena Games Triathlon World Champions will be the man and woman with the highest combined score from the Finals and one Series event.
