CHALLENGEFAMILY and Dare2Tri will extend and strengthen their longstanding cooperation with a new contractual partnership: Dare2Tri will become the official swim course sponsor of CHALLENGEFAMILY’s flagship event THECHAMPIONSHIP.
“Dare2Tri is proud and honored to support CHALLENGEFAMILY’s flagship event THECHAMPIONSHIP as swim course sponsor,” says Dare2Tri CEO Alex de Boer. “For us this was a logical next step, after a partnership was established several years ago when the two companies embarked on a project to bring Dare2Tri/CHALLENGEFAMILY branded wetsuits and speedsuits to the market at a competitive price. We feel at home working with CHALLENGEFAMILY as we both encourage people to dare and challenge themselves at all levels.”
The CEO of CHALLENGEFAMILY Zibi Szlufcik considers a partnership extension around THECHAMPIONSHIP to be ‘a natural fit’. “It is Dare2Tri’s aim to open up the wonderful sport of triathlon to a wider target group and we recognize the significant overlap with CHALLENGEFAMILY’s mission as an inclusive organization. Together with our partner Dare2Tri, we will not only deliver products with an excellent value for money but also provide swim related services such as suit trials and rental to assist athletes at THECHAMPIONSHIP.”
De Boer concludes ,,being a swim course sponsor is exciting for us and for all participants and families. At THECHAMPIONSHIP, the Dare2Tri Challenge4Speed wetsuit as well as the complete line of Dare2Tri wetsuits and speedsuits will be available to test, rent and purchase. The Dare2Tri/CHALLENGEFAMILY wetsuit, Challenge4Speed, stands out from the rest of the pack and provides athletes with that x-factor we love to have in race gear. The wetsuit fits like a second skin and boosts an ultra-thin 1.5mm DuraFlex neoprene throughout the shoulder and arms. We will of course be available throughout the entire event to give support to all CHALLENGE athletes.”
In 2011, Dare2Tri was founded with a mission to provide athletes with the most innovative and top-quality wetsuits at an affordable cost in an already expensive sport. It’s Dare2Tri’s goal to constantly improve their products so that athletes around the globe can be proud and enjoy Dare2Tri. This year they introduced their newest member of their MACH family, the MACHV.5. ,,We believe we have cracked the market with a truly special and innovative wetsuit.”
