On 23-24th of September, the second Super League triathlon took place on Jersey Island. The Super League is introducing a brand new, fast-paced triathlon format to reach millions of people worldwide. During the Super League Jersey event, HeiQ sponsored the triathlon suits for the athletes who entered the corporate relay to support the MaccaNow Foundation.
