UPDATE: The BCA Super League Bali has been rescheduled to 13-14 June 2020.
Super League’s decision comes after safety concerns following the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As the owner of the event, Super League’s main priority is always the safety and welfare of its athletes, staff, spectators and volunteers.
With concern over mass participation events in the region, proactive and early action has been taken to try and ensure a safe, happy and exciting event can still go ahead.
All registered participants can roll their entries automatically to the new dates with no action required.
There is also the option for a refund. The window for refunds will last until 8 March when all entries will be rolled over until 13-14 June.
The official accommodation partner for BCA Super League Triathlon Bali 2020, the five-star Ayodya Resort Bali, has agreed to transfer existing reservations to the new dates without charge upon application.
I always meant to go back for the second edition of Super League Bali. I don’t think I got to see enough of Bali last time, and also Super League Bali 2019 was such a fun way to kick off my first year of racing. I want it to set the tone for 2020.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, the BCA Super League Bali is a qualifier event into the Super League Triathlon championship series. Professionals will race over two days, with the top three men and women receiving one of three Golden Tickets into the championship series. Age groupers get to race using part of the same course as the pros, and then we kick back to watch the pros race. It’s a fabulous race-cation, and the only Super League Triathlon event in Southeast Asia.
With the race happening on the 4th-5th April this year, it’s later in the year than it was last time, which is perfect given how slow the start to my training has been. Additionally, amid the COVID-19 cancellations for big events through February and March, April is a date far enough in the future and the event small enough in nature that it should proceed as usual. Indonesia is also one of the rare countries in the world with no confirmed COVID-19 cases, and they were one of the earliest to shut down flights to and from the epicenter of the outbreak.
So that being said, I’m just putting this out to the universe that I will be going to Bali
this April for Super League Bali! I took advantage of a sizeable registration discount over Valentine’s weekend.
UPDATE: Check out my coverage of the Super League Bali press conference in Jakarta below.
If the urge to race in an exotic destination strikes you and you’d like to join me on the starting line, Super League Bali is offering 20% off registration fees with the promo code BCASLTCLUBS20.
Like last year I also booked in at the hotel partner and race venue Ayodya Resorts Bali. I got 25% off the room rates inclusive of breakfast with promo code SLT2020 booked directly on Ayodya’s website. (This is fully refundable before the middle of March.)
If you’re still a little unsure about committing, then why not enter the competition to win a four-night stay for two at Ayodya Bali from 2nd-5th April! It costs nothing to join, and the winner is drawn on March 1st.
