Completing Time Trials, and their multiple respected time trial locations, is one of Fortnite's many Weekly Challenges.
Completing it will give you additional XP to help go towards your many Season 6 rewards. Note you'll need to be a Battle Pass holder in order to undertake this challenge.

Fortnite Time Trials locations
Though you only need to complete a total of three Timed Trials, there are a total of five Timed Trial locations to find in Fortnite:
Specifically, they are found:
West of Dusty Divot, on the flat expanse of the mountain nearby:
South of Shifty Shafts, on the west side of the red bridge over the river:
Tomato Temple, on the steps in the centre of the location:
South of Tilted Towers, on the mountain overlooking the location:
North-east of Snobby Shores, on top of the mountain overlooking the rocket base:
Finding these tough to complete? The following section on how Time Trials in Fortnite work can help.
Otherwise, once you are done, there are plenty of other Challenges to take on this week - so keep playing!
How Time Trials in Fortnite work
For the Week 3 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:
- Complete timed trials (3 total, 10 Battle Stars)
Owners of the Season 5 Battle Pass will recognise this challenge, and it's pretty similar (and actually easier - you only need to complete three compared to five, and you also get 10 Battle Stars instead of five. Rejoice!).
So what does it involve? Several Timed Trials have appeared throughout the map, represented by a holographic-style stopwatch. They're pretty hard to spot from a distance, so knowing each Time Trial location will come in handy.
To activate a Time Trial, you need to find the stopwatch, then interact with the prompt.
This will immediately start a Time Trial. To complete it, you need to sprint through each of the blue markers that appears nearby. It's pretty tough, in our experience, and there are several makers at most trial locations that require you to build in order to reach them.
Our advice is to first activate the trial, then look at where you need to build, do your building, then wait for the trial to expire and start it again, with your building already completed so you can easily run from one marker to the next.
Once it's complete, be sure to actually finish the match, even if the in-game tracker says it's counted - just to be fully sure it's properly added to your challenge total.

What were Fortnite Time Trials like previously
Fancy a bit of nostalgia? Here's what Fortnite's Time Trials were like in Season 5:
As you can see, there's little crossover between the Season 6 challenges - and obviously a lot fewer cursed areas to contend with, too. And of course, Leaky Lake was still named Loot Lake. RIP.
