Along with a dynamic three race triathlon series featuring some of the most aggressive prize purses in the industry – Rev3 Triathlon continues to push the envelope by offering one of the largest potential payouts in triathlon.
If any professional athlete can win all three of Rev3’s feature races in one year, the Knoxville Olympic, Quassy Half and Cedar Point Full they will take home an additional $125,000 paycheck and will be crowned the world’s most complete triathlete! A Pro who could win each Event along with Bonus pay could earn $183,000 racing with Rev3 next year.
Rev3 Marketing-Sponsorship Director & Pro-Liaison Heather Gollnick comments; “As a professional athlete, and mother of three, I know firsthand how challenging it can be to race as a pro and try to earn a good living. Rev3 would like to change the landscape of triathlon by offering our professional athletes a first class race experience including: free race entry, lodging and the ability to earn a *quality* payday at each of our Series Races.”
“Rev3 put on a sensational event last year and I am thrilled to commit to the 2010 Rev3 series. What they are doing for our sport, for professionals, by offering an amazing prize purse is tremendous. And I am excited to race for a Win-All-3 series bonus. To win over those three distances (Olympic, HalfRev, and FullRev), well, that will show who the strongest swimmer, biker, runner is in our sport. Rev3 does it all top-notch, the race they put on for the amateurs is quality. So to know, I can go to a race that is well put on for every athlete there, and to race to win big money, you will see Big Matty Reed at every Rev3 race for sure.”

To recognize their efforts and encourage our age-groupers to race for Series points we will give Knoxville’s age-group winners free entry into our HalfRev atQuassy and FullRev at Cedar Point.
Our Age-Group Athletes will also have the ability to earn a Series ending Prize Purse. “Giving back to the sport that has been so good to me over the past twelve years is a true source of motivation for me,” states Gollnick.
