Becoming a Sponsor
Since the introduction of triathlon in the 2000 Olympic games, Triathlon has consistently experienced a 4-6 percent annual growth. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact causes of the continued growth of the sport, but according to USA Triathlon, the below factors all played a part:
- Society’s interest in fitness and living a healthy lifestyle
- The growth of the number of total races across the country
- Media attention on the sport
- Growth in the 30-49 age groups who are looking for varied outlets for fitness
- Peer pressure from friends who have tried the sport
- The ego reward of saying you “are a triathlete”
- Increase in clubs, which create a community concept for men and especially women who enjoy the group training and support atmosphere
The greatest growth has occurred in the 35-39 and 40-44 age groups and it is believed that this growth will continue as those in these age groups are looking for new outlets of participation and fitness. Fortunately growth has been good in all age categories in the past decade and so the sport as a whole should continue to increase. By joining the team as a sponsor, Chad can bring increased value to your corporate health and fitness program. He can help disseminate his 20+ years of wellness knowledge to your organization through various outlets such as corporate talks, blogs, media visuals, lunch and learns and even periodic group training gatherings. On average, two thousand athletes compete in an Ironman event and 80+ thousand attend an Ironman event for approximately 4-5 days leading up to the race bringing increased visibility to your brand.
