April 16, 2019
Santa Cruz, CA – Tuesday April 16, 2019. Mark Allen today announced that Mark Allen Coaching will offer 10 full season coaching scholarships providing the full range of coaching services to the 10 successful applicants the company feels can put our coaching to the greatest use and can least afford any type of coaching.
“At Mark Allen Coaching we are well aware that pursuing your passion for the sport of triathlon can be a costly endeavor. Certainly, there are ways to reduce that burden with the choices an athlete makes about what equipment to purchase and which races to enter. But even for the thriftiest of athletes the financial reality can make it nearly impossible to continue on with the sport. That’s where we want to step in and help out. My goal is to give something back to the sport that has given me so much in a meaningful way.” Said company founder Mark Allen.
