FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 6.06.11 - Endurance Films, USA Triathlon’s official video production company, announced that they are actively developing their own sponsored triathlon racing team, with the team’s inaugural event to be the 2011 Age Group National Triathlon Championship on August 20th in Burlington, Vermont. Applications are currently being accepted.
“We are always thrilled to be behind the camera, now we’re going to get behind some athletes,” said Endurance Films VP, Danny Kolker, “Age group athletes have the drive and dedication of pros, so we’re going to start treating them like pros.”
The team will consist of twelve triathletes spanning the range of age groups. Each athlete will be given a twelve-month contract with the Endurance Films Racing Team consisting of cash stipends, team apparel provided by Champion System, additional sponsor support by Jack Kane Custom Bikes, Training Peaks and Eco Sport Bottles, inclusion in national multimedia PR campaigns and, of course, industry-leading training resources form Endurance Films.
“It’s always been our goal to help athletes reach their peak potential. The athletes who have qualified for the National Championship have proven that they are at the top of their game, which is why we have chosen to search for Team Endurance Films from amongst them,” added Endurance Films owner, Eric Feller.
Endurance Films will unveil the team roster on August 2nd. The only criterion that must be met is that the athlete must have qualified for and be entered in the 2011 USAT AGNC race. To apply, athletes must send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and make their case for sponsorship in one of two ways:
1. Send a link to a 30-60 second VIDEO of yourself telling us about you and why you’d make a good fit for our team (link can be YouTube, Facebook, your personal web page or another video hosting site). Be sure to include your full name, age and contact information including phone number.
2. Send 200-300 words describing yourself and why you’d make a good fit for our team. Please include 2-3 photos of yourself (competition/training shots preferred). You can instead send a link to photos rather than attaching to email. Be sure to include your full name, age and contact information including phone number.
