December 10, 2020
Training software company to support USA Triathlon coaches with exclusive discounts and resources
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.— USA Triathlon today announced it has renewed with TrainingPeaks, one of the organization’s longest-standing corporate partners, through 2023. Through the agreement, TrainingPeaks will elevate its commitment to coaches with a strong focus on coaching education and exclusive resources, while continuing to provide USA Triathlon annual members with access to first-class training resources.
TrainingPeaks has served as USA Triathlon’s Official Training Software since 2005. The renewal ensures that the National Governing Body, its members and coaches will continue to receive the most comprehensive training, analysis and planning capabilities to elevate the sport through the postponed Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games next summer and beyond.
Starting in 2021, TrainingPeaks will serve as the presenting partner of USA Triathlon Coaching Education. USA Triathlon Certified Coaches will receive discounted access to the TrainingPeaks platform, as well as exclusive TrainingPeaks education resources to boost their expertise.
“TrainingPeaks is excited to renew our contract with USA Triathlon through 2023, extending our longstanding partnership to nearly 20 years,” said Dirk Friel, TrainingPeaks Co-Founder and Chief Evangelist. “We’re proud to continue supporting USA Triathlon athletes by offering 20 percent off Athlete Premium accounts, as well as expanding our role to be the presenting partner for USA Triathlon Coaching Education. This helps coaches save money on the tools they need to plan for a successful year — along with the opportunity to receive CEUs through our online courses including the 2020 Endurance Coaching Summit.”
“For almost two decades, TrainingPeaks has gone above and beyond in its partnership with USA Triathlon, demonstrating its commitment to coaches and athletes of every level,” said Victoria Brumfield, USA Triathlon Chief of Staff. “Its software is the trusted performance tool for beginners and Olympians alike — and the company’s culture of innovation drives the sport forward. We are proud to continue promoting this industry-leading platform to the USA Triathlon family for another three years.”
In addition, TrainingPeaks will serve as the presenting partner of all coaching sessions at Endurance Exchange, the annual industry conference for endurance sports hosted by USA Triathlon. The 2021 Endurance Exchange will take place as a virtual event from Jan. 21-23.
The company will also support USA Triathlon in providing complimentary training plans for participants in USA Triathlon’s four owned National Championships (Toyota Age Group Sprint and Olympic-Distance, Duathlon, Collegiate Club and Youth & Junior) as well as the Toyota Legacy Triathlon. Athletes and coaches on select U.S. National and development teams will also receive the benefit of using TrainingPeaks to achieve their goals.
