COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado. – USA Triathlon today announced the dates for the sixth annual National Triathlon Week presented by Nix Biosensors, a national initiative to celebrate the sport of triathlon and all of its constituent groups. The largely social media-based campaign brings together the multi-sport community from June 20-26 – not just to swim, cycle and run, but also to share experiences, inspiring stories, advice and support.
The full schedule, along with ideas on how to participate, can be found on the official National Triathlon Week homepage: usatriathlon.org/triweek. Throughout the week, athletes are encouraged to get involved and celebrate the sport by posting to social media with the hashtag #TriWeek and tagging @usatriathlon. The week’s activities promote the sharing of stories and training tips from current multisport athletes, making it an ideal opportunity for potential triathletes to learn more about the multisport lifestyle.
“National Triathlon Week is an opportunity for athletes, coaches, clubs, race directors, officials, partners and industry members to share their collective knowledge and passion for the sport, not only among themselves, but also with those looking to get into multisport. said Thomas Lenneberg, Director of Marketing and Communications for USA Triathlon. “We look forward to sharing unique, engaging and educational content during this week-long celebration of our sport, and we encourage the wider multi-sport community to get involved.”
“Nix is extremely proud to present USA Triathlon’s sixth annual National Triathlon Week,” said Meridith Cass, CEO of Nix Biosensors. “We are honored to celebrate new and veteran multi-sport athletes, and to contribute to their success with personalized hydration strategies and new content.”
The focus of the week is on celebration, education and participation in the multi-sport lifestyle. Each day of the week, a different theme will be presented, showcasing everyone who makes up the multisport community, including age group and elite athletes and elite paratriathletes, USA Triathlon Certified Coaches, race directors, clubs and officials. Saturday, June 25 is Go for the Gold Day, presented by Toyota, exclusive mobility and automotive partner of the U.S. Triathlon and supporter of the 2022 Toyota Elite U.S. National Paratriathlon Team.
