While many amateur triathlon teams have already picked their members for the 2010 season, Erin Baker’s Triathlon Team has an extended deadline. The group is one of few triathlon teams that only includes age-group triathletes.
See press release below for more.
Erin Baker’s Wholesome Baked Goods, creator of the Official Granola of Ironman, is now accepting applications for its 2010 Erin Baker’s Triathlon Team. The team will be comprised of U.S. amateur athletes.
Erin Baker’s Triathlon Team will be supported by major sponsors, including Kestrel Bicycles and Playtri Coaching Services. Kestrel will offer Erin Baker’s athletes an exclusive sponsorship deal on its 2010 triathlon or road bikes. Playtri will be offering free individualized coaching for each athlete with discounts on other services. Erin Baker’s will be providing athletes with a monthly supply of cookies and granola, a complimentary custom team uniform and exposure on their website and marketing materials. Other sponsors will be announced as details are finalized.
Team members will fundraise for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America in conjunction with the Janus Charity Challenge. “Hundreds of Ironman athletes have found more meaning in their Ironman experience by joining the Janus Charity Challenge; by harnessing their passion for the sport and using it to make a difference in the lives of others, the impact of their race becomes that much greater,” Says Casey Cortese, President of the Janus Foundation.
“Supporting programs like the Erin Baker’s Triathlon Team is really important to Kestrel,” said Steven Harad, Kestrel Brand Manager. “It provides athletes an opportunity to develop their talents and compete on a team at a national level. I can personally vouch that Erin’s products are delicious, perfect to train with and an excellent benefit to being involved with the team.”
All team members will be required to have at least one North American Ironman on their 2010 race schedule to be eligible. Erin Baker’s is looking for dedicated athletes who are active in their local triathlon community and will strive to be effective brand ambassadors for Erin Baker’s and team sponsors.
Representing Erin Baker’s dedication and commitment to the sport of triathlon, Bryan Geschwill, President of Sales and Marketing, will be rejoining the Erin Baker’s Triathlon Team as Team Captain.
