Jersey Post & Go continues the Super League Triathlon series

Following on from last year’s inaugural Super League Triathlon event in Jersey and the first overprint in the series, Super League Triathlon 2018 will be commemorated on Jersey Post & Go JE02 stamps in September this year. The overprint, reading Super League Triathlon 2018 will be printed on the Jersey Crest Post & Go stamps from Wednesday 12 September to close of business on Wednesday 10 October 2018.

Super League Triathlon is a new championship series combining the three core triathlon disciplines but with an alternative approach to the Olympic standard. Points are awarded for three individual stages: the Triple Mix, the Equaliser and the Eliminator rounds.

Melanie Gouzinis, Head of Philatelic at Jersey Post explains: “Islanders are thrilled that Super League Triathlon is coming to Jersey once again. Jersey is a wonderful venue for such an internationally appealing event, providing a huge opportunity to witness first-hand, the sporting talent of the world’s best triathletes competing against each other in a mix of gruelling short-course tracks and Olympic speed-racing.”

This year, the event which will be broadcast live to millions across the globe takes place from September 28th to 30th.

Jersey Post’s new Post & Go issue, Nautical Knots, will also vend from the JE02 kiosk but will not carry the commemorative overprint.

Jersey Post’s JE02 series Post & Go kiosk, powered by Royal Mail, is located in Jersey Post’s Broad Street post office in St Helier.
