Super League Triathlon Club Championships Round-up

Published:

As part of the build up to the SLT Arena Games London Powered by Zwift, Super League Triathlon provided British Triathlon affiliated clubs with the opportunity to compete in the SLT Arena Games London Club Championships Powered by Zwift.

The club championships saw affiliated clubs earn points as their members competed in virtual running and cycling races on Zwift. Running for three consecutive weeks, the club championships provided a men’s and a women’s virtual running and virtual cycling race each week.

By taking part in the virtual races, members earned points for their club’s cumulative total with prizes available for the affiliated clubs with the highest total at the end of the series.

With the championships complete, the top three clubs in the men’s races were: Tri-Anglia Triathlon Club (184 points), Trythan (116 points) and Greenlight PT (101 points. The top three clubs in the women’s races were: Greenlight PT (102 points), Tri20 Triathlon Club (84 points) and Serpentine Running Club (72 points).

One of the clubs from the East Midlands to take part was Boston Tri Club, with club coach Lea Ball commenting:

“One of our members stumbled across it, we subsequently shared it in the group as it seemed like a really good idea to try and get some athletes involved. Everyone is sat at home looking for motivation, and whilst not everyone has Zwift and the right equipment - those that have it were really keen to get involved.

“Some simply incorporated it into their current training plans and used them as testing, others just needed that kick up the rear to get them going, and that's exactly what it did.”

Over the last 12 months, clubs around the country have staged and got involved with various virtual and individual challenges, with Boston no exception.

“We hosted intercounty virtual duathlon’s which saw up to 140 people take part in a run, bike, run event,” Ball added.

“Athletes had 3 days to complete the distances to help keep in line with the 'once a day exercise' rule. We are also just about to launch an Easter version of the same duathlon.

“It's been really difficult to remain motivated, we've all felt this. Without events to train for motivation easily trails off. Sport is known to be good for mental health too, so now more than ever it's important to remain fit and keep active.”
