Erin Baker’s Wholesome Baked Goods is now accepting applications for 30 openings on its 2012 Erin Baker’s Triathlon Team.

See the press release below:

Erin Baker’s is looking for dedicated and talented U.S. amateur athletes who are active in their local triathlon community, will strive to be effective brand ambassadors for Erin Baker’s and team sponsors, and want to be a part of a dynamic group of Ironman age-groupers powered by granola! All team members will be required to have at least one North American Ironman on their 2012 race schedule to be eligible.

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 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 by Louis Garneau and exposure on their website and marketing materials. Other sponsors can be found on Erin Baker’s website and will be announced as details are finalized.

Team members will fundraise for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America in conjunction with the Ironman Foundation. “Nearly 20,000 athletes compete in Ironman events throughout North America each year. Many of those triathletes are participating in an Ironman as a result of being touched by something bigger than themselves — maybe it was a cancer battle, the loss of a loved one or countless other reasons as to why they have chosen to compete. The Ironman Foundation will provide athletes with the opportunity to race for a charity of their choice or for one of Ironman’s featured charities.”- The Ironman 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.”
