Triathlon London Sponsorship Opportunity
The sport of triathlon has seen incredible growth in recent years in both active participation and general public awareness, with triathlon events filling quicker than ever before. Around 65% of the UK’s triathletes live within London, the South East and South West regions and participation estimates in 2006 for London region alone were in the region of 10,000 individuals.
The demographics of triathlon are almost unique when compared to other sports. Triathletes are active, affluent professionals who embrace new technologies for work, communication and social activities. The sport requires focus, passion, determination and a drive to succeed, making it one of the most infectious and exciting sports to be involved with.
The same focus and determination can be found within the junior triathlon community, the parents of whom tend to be triathletes themselves. London has produced not one but two Triathlon World Champions in the past 10 years, in Spencer Smith (Hounslow) and current World Champion Tim Don (Hampton). The Triathlon London committee is keen to continue this success.
Triathlon London supports “The London Plan for Sport and Physical Activity” by encouraging Londoners of all ages and abilities to START, STAY and SUCCEED in sport.
Current Triathlon London initiatives include:
Triathlon London League (6-race senior series in 2007)
Triathlon London Tristar & Youth Series (5-race junior series in 2007)
Support of Junior selected athletes for Inter Regional Championships (Glasgow 2007) through coaching workshops, subsidised travel & accommodation
Delivery of an effective Talent Identification programme for the region
Regional academy for talented junior athletes, and
Coaching workshops for newcomers to the sport
Sponsorship of Triathlon London would give potential exposure through naming rights, senior & junior race series, our website, publicity, media coverage of the events and other communication initiatives to well over 30,000 individuals both regionally and nationally.
This is a great opportunity to become part of the team driving triathlon development in London!
