Races › Super League Triathlon Tempe 2020
Super League Triathlon Tempe has been postponed until 2021.
Super League remains committed to providing a safe environment for all athletes, spectators, volunteers and staff and have made the decision to postpone the race scheduled for May 22-24 in light of the continued issues surrounding COVID-19.
We are working with all stakeholders to finalise a new date in 2021 and look forward to welcoming athletes and spectators to Arizona for a brilliant two days of Super League action once it is safe to do so.
All registered participants will be contacted directly to outline their options.
Super League Triathlon (SLT) will take to the United States of America (USA) for the first time, as the Series heads for the city of Tempe, Arizona for a Qualifier event.
Home to the highest number of triathlon participants in the world, the USA is a fitting choice for the most game-changing triathlon series on the planet. The sizzling city of Tempe is poised and ready to welcome some of the biggest names in the sport, who will go head to head in another pulse-raising SLT showdown for a chance to secure their Golden Ticket to the Championship Series.
With the success of USA stars Katie Zaferes, Ben Kanute, Taylor Spivey and Summer Rappaport, Super League Tempe will provide a platform for many other American athletes to win the chance to race alongside the established elite in the Championship Series.
Tempe Town Lake – a striking desert oasis in the middle of the Phoenix Metropolitan area – will provide a perfect canvas for the SLT swim legs. The athletes will then take to a bike and run course which weaves its way around the stunning setting of Tempe Beach Park, a local hotspot for summer gatherings and the ideal spectator venue.
Alongside the Pro races, which will feature the Sprint Enduro followed by the Triple Mix, budding Age Groupers will also be able to soak up the race atmosphere. Taking on the same Enduro format and racing on the same course as the sporting icons, Tempe will be the only Super League Age Group race in the world to closely mirror the Pro format. Junior Sprint Enduro racing will also be on offer, giving young athletes the opportunity to take some of their first steps into the sport.
