Britain’s best performance pathway triathletes will take on a packed programme of racing in June as the British Triathlon Super Series kicks into high gear


The annual series pits high-performing athletes from across the country in highly competitive races at locations around the UK.

The race for the 2023 Super Series titles has already begun with athletes earning points towards a cumulative ranking, culminating in September’s Grand Final.

Llanelli staged races in all nine categories on 18 May, paratriathletes were in action at Prestwold while juniors took on a Performance Assessment and Junior World Trial.

Harry Leleu took an early lead with victory in the Senior Open category in Llanelli, banking a maximum of 800 points with Cameron Main second (740) and Cameron Harris (685).

In the Senior Female event, Lizzy Edge was the cream of the crop in Wales and she carries top spot into the month of June ahead of Annabel Morton and Jessica Turnbull.

Senior athletes will race at Mallory Park from 24-25 June, followed by Sunderland in July, the Eton Eliminator in August and culminating in September’s Grand Final.

On the Para Tri side, Bret Crossley won both Prestwold and Llanelli in a dominant start to the PTWC Open season.

Commonwealth Games star Oscar Kelly took PTVI victory at Prestwold but didn’t race Llanelli, Nathaniel Costigan in pole position in that category thanks to two second places.

Similarly, Brett Daughtrey won Llanelli in PTS2 but Ryan McClure has proved a consistent force with first at Prestwold followed by second to assume the lead on 18 points.

Henry Urand and Gavin McLaughlin are level on 10 points atop the PTS3 rankings with a race win each.

Finley Jakes has a maximum haul of 20 points in PTS4 and Cheryl Went is unbeaten at PTS5.

PTS5 Open is a closely-contested affair with Tom Barnard leading on 18 points and Florian Combe and Jack Green locked level on 13 points, with Prestwold winner Michael Salisbury not on the start line in Llanelli.

Mel Nicholls (PTWC Female), Rhiannon Henry (PTVI Female) and Hannah Moore (PTS4 Female) have all taken race wins so far.

Para Tri athletes will next race in Swansea in July and Eton in August before the Grand Final.

The junior seasons are well underway and Oliver Mills has taken a slender lead in the Junior Open rankings.

Mills finished fifth in the Performance Assessment and second in Llanelli and the Junior World Trial, rewarded for his consistency with 4625 points.

His nearest rival as it stands is Solomon Okrafo-Smart who sits on 4478 with Tom Hattee just 25 points behind.

Isla Hedley has not missed the top three so far this season in Junior Female, winning the Junior World Trial to take a maximum 2500 points and overall top spot with 4813 points.

Youth Female A and Youth Open A both have joint leaders, Annabel Souter and Lauren Mitchell both on 2500 points after two races in the Female category, with Alex Dack and Arthur Ballard on the same points haul with a share of the lead in the Open category.

Helena Coy leads Youth Female B and Brandon Pye tops Youth Male B.

A whole host of races await for youth and junior athletes, starting with Lochore Meadows on 18 June and followed by Mallory Park, Worcester (2 July), Sunderland, Eton and coming together at the Grand Final.
