Major League Triathlon has officially opened up professional applications for the 2018 MLT season. Major League Triathlon is the first and only professional triathlon league in the United States. MLT specializes in the Mixed Team Relay format of racing, which pits teams of two pro men and two pro women against each other for a short and intense team based super sprint format. Mixed Team Relay will make its debut in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Major League Triathlon is entering its 3rd season in 2018 and has opened up applications for the 32 league slots (16 pro men and 16 pro women). MLT will host 4 events in 2018 and will continue to offer one of the biggest triathlon prize purses in the USA. MLT paid out $150,000 to professional athletes in 2017. In 2017, Major League Triathlon hosted races in Charlotte, Atlantic City, Vail Valley, and Cleveland. The league had some of the world’s top athletes racing including Olympians: Paula Findlay, Ben Kanute and Erin Densham.
“We are extremely excited to open up applications for our 2018 season” said Daniel Cassidy, CEO of Major League Triathlon. “We have watched some of the world’s best race with us and we are happy to open the opportunity to more athletes. I encourage all pro athletes to apply for their chance to join the MLT Family.”
In 2017, the Cleveland Rock and Roll (Lindsey Jerdonek, Kevin McDowell, Sarah Alexander and AJ Baucco) completed a perfect season, winning all four events and took home the MLT Cup.
MLT will announce 2018 cities and dates in the coming weeks. To apply for MLT, follow the following link: MLT Pro Application.
