Superleage Malibu 2021

Super League Triathlon’s star athletes are battling it out for not only Championship Series glory in 2022 but also a share of $1.4m in prize money.

Each round of the five-event 2022 Championship Series will carry with it $137,000 in prize money, with a further $302,000 for the Overall Series Leaderboard, $90,000 split between the Discipline Leaderboard winners and a staggering $320,000 for the SLT Teams.

The winner of each event takes home $20,000, while the Championship Series winners pick up an extra $50,000. Discipline Leaderboard winners collect $15,000 while the winning Team will share $120,000 between them.

The highest earners in 2021 were both female, with Georgia Taylor-Brown picking up $140,000 and Jessica Learmonth $136,000. Alex Yee was the highest earning male with $120,000. With more prize money on offer in 2022, those totals are likely to be eclipsed this time out.
