Organisers of the Jersey Triathlon have announced that Accuro will return as headline sponsor for the 2017 event and beyond, as a longer term partnership has been agreed. The event, which will again be centred at the Waterfront in St.Helier will take place on Sunday 9 July 2017 and will raise funds for the Oscar Maclean Foundation.
Triathlon continues to be one the world’s fastest growing sports and The Jersey Triathlon has seen rapid growth in the last few years, with near five hundred people, of all ages and abilities participating in 2016. Organisers are confident that with the continued support of Accuro, the Jersey Triathlon can attract even more competitors to the event from overseas as well as enhance the overall event experience for our local competitors.
Andrew Thomas, Managing Director of 3D Events and Organiser of the event says, “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Accuro as headline sponsor of the event. Accuro share our vision to produce a national standard triathlon event here in Jersey, capable of attracting people of all ages and abilities from both on and off island. Also, like us, they are passionate about the continued growth of this local sporting event for the benefit of our community, economy and official charity – The Oscar Maclean Foundation”.
Commenting on the partnership, Paul Douglas, Managing Director of Accuro in Jersey said; “We are delighted to continue our commitment as the Headline Sponsor for the Jersey Triathlon. With significant growth in the popularity of triathlons both internationally and locally in recent years, this event is a fantastic conduit to raise Jersey’s profile. The course is also the British Isles most southerly triathlon and, given the size of Jersey, it allows all participants to experience its stunning coast and countryside. Triathlons are a great opportunity to build team camaraderie and achieve personal goals, and sponsorship of this event speaks directly to Accuro’s drive of being both a global and local player, being multi-disciplinary, having agility, courage and going the extra mile. We are proud to support the development of such an inspiring event for both adults and children.”
