Zwift 2018 National Championships Announced

Get signed up for your chance to be a Zwift national champion.

Zwift, the fitness platform born from gaming, is set to host​ the first men’s and women’s Zwift National Championship events on February 24. Zwifters from the top 15 nations worldwide will compete to earn the right to wear their national jersey in Zwift for a year. Each national championship event will include men’s and women’s individual races. Both races will take place on the Watopia Volcano climb course.

The 2018 Men’s National Championship Race will complete three laps of the 14.2 mile circuit, taking in a total of 2007 feet of climbing. The Women’s 2018 Championship Event will take place over two laps of the same course, totaling 1338 feet of climbing.

For 2018, the 15 countries with the most Zwifters have been selected to compete in the first Zwift National Championships. These countries are: USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Belgium, Sweden, South Korea, Denmark, Switzerland, France, and Poland. All events take place on February 24 with the exception of Australia.

The Australian Zwift National Championships will take place later this year to fall in line with their winter cycling season. As with all regular national championship events, you must enter the championship corresponding to your registered nationality, rather than country of residence. If your home nation isn’t featured, fear not, more countries will be added in 2019.
