Races › Arena Games Triathlon – Munich 2022
Super League Triathlon have partnered with World Triathlon to bring you the Arena Games triathlon series and, this year, Arena Games Triathlon, Powered by Zwift is heading to Munich. On 9th April 2022, the iconic Olympiapark, Munich, will play host to the greatest triathletes in the world, as they battle it out for the chance to be crowned the first ever Triathlon Esports World Champion.
Each Arena Games Triathlon 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 in 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 grew from strength to strength last year, drawing a huge audience thanks to its innovative and exciting indoor race concept. Now, with Arena Games Triathlon powered by Zwift Super League Triathlon and World Triathlon have taken this concept to the next level. In 2022, the Arena Games Triathlon Championship series will be held across three events, in three iconic cities. At the Grand Finale, held in Singapore, the overall winners of the series will be named the first ever Esports Triathlon World Champions!

What is Arena Games Triathlon Powered by Zwift
Arena Games Triathlon Powered by Zwift is an innovative concept that blends in real life and virtual racing to deliver a new level of the immersive viewing experience. The format took the triathlon world by storm with the debut of the SLT Arena Games in Rotterdam 2020 before successful follow-up events in London and Rotterdam in 2021. Now it’s back in a World Championship Series format for 2022, that will see the crowning of the first esports triathlon World Champions. With further innovations, more live data, and in your face cameras, these events will get closer to the athletes than ever before.
When and where will the Arena Games Triathlon World Championship Series powered by Zwift Championship Series take place?
In 2022, the Arena Games Triathlon World Championship Series powered by Zwift series will take place in 3 iconic locations.
April 9, 2022: Munich, Germany
April 23, 2022: London, UK
May 7, 2022: Singapore Grand Final
What is the concept?
Arena Games Triathlon powered by Zwift is an amalgamation of real-life and virtual racing. It provides an immersive viewing experience that allows fans to get up close and personal with the best triathletes in the world and enjoy live data.
The swim leg takes place in an Olympic sized pool, while the bike and run disciplines are completed on smart trainers and self-powered curved treadmills with the power and speed of the athletes turned into a visual race via Zwift’s online platform.
The TV broadcast brings together the best of all these elements to produce a captivating event, with in-your-face cameras bringing you closer than ever to the athletes and an enclosed environment showing their effort and raw suffering like never before.
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.
The 8-10 best athletes from the heats (venue dependant) will then progress to the final. In Munich this will be the top three in each heat plus the two fastest losers. The final will consist of 3 Stages over Super League’s unique Arena Games Triathlon format (Swim – Bike – Run // Run – Bike – Swim // Swim – Bike – Run).
The competition times for each athlete will be added from the 1st and the 2nd stage. Pursuit starts for the last stage based on the time difference accumulated across the first two stages. The athlete with the fastest time, will start first.
The Championship Finals will follow a similar format but with a two-stage repechage offering an extra route to the big finale: a three-stage battle for the 30 athletes who make it onto the start lists.
For more information on formats please visit the Formats section.
How does the point scoring work?
The World Champions will be decided via a points system combining the results of the final in Singapore plus each athlete’s best result at one additional Arena Games event. The results also contribute to World Triathlon’s world rankings.
The Series (Munich and London) race winners will each receive 250 points, the Championship Finals (Singapore) 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.
Who is racing?
Official start lists for the Arena Games Triathlon powered by Zwift events will be announced in the run-up to each event.
There will be between 16-20 female athletes and 16-20 male athletes racing the events in Munich and London. The Finals in Singapore sees that number grown to 30 female and 30 male athletes.
