Super League Triathlon

24 September 2017

The Super League Triathlon event (which SandpiperCI was a Sponsor) was held on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th September 2017.

Competitors from around the world took part in the two day event. Jersey's Elizabeth Marina, was the venue selected to host the swim, bike, run elements of triathlon which made it the one stop spot amphitheatre for spectators to capture the action. Spectators could view the action packed event right inside the arena from the Pier adjacent to Elizabeth Marina.

Day 1 Saturday 23 September: The Triple Mix event tests the versatility and adaptability of athletes by throwing the traditional swim-bike-run sequence out the window with a ten-minute break between stages from when the round winner crosses the line. Athletes complete three stages of all three disciplines with a ten-minute break between stages.

Day 2 Sunday 24 September: The Eliminator round is a survival of the fastest.  Speed and stamina combine in a pressure-cooker race format where field position is key. The Eliminator format comprises three Stages of swim-bike-run with a 10-minute break between each Stage. The 10-minute break commences when the winner of the preceding round crosses the finish line. This means every athlete behind the Stage winner has less than 10 minutes to recover! After each Stage, athletes who finish below a certain threshold are eliminated.
