“We are thrilled to work with Champion System again in 2017” said Daniel Cassidy, Chief Executive Officer at Major League Triathlon. “They have been with us since MLT was still just a concept. They produce the highest quality triathlon apparel in the world and allow us to be creative when designing custom team tri-suits. Beyond our pros, Champion System will also allow our fans to purchase replica tri-suits and cycling apparel via their online store.”
The eight professional MLT teams will consist of 32 of the best elite triathletes from all over the world. Each athlete will swim three hundred meters, bike four miles and run one mile, one at a time, before tagging their next teammate. The first team to have all four athletes cross the finish line will win.
“We are excited to continue our support for Major League Triathlon and its mission to grow the sport in the United States,” offers Champion System Co-founder and President, Scott Kaylin. “Their format, which combines a world class competitive event with a lifestyle festival that appeals to the whole family, helps to promote engagement of both participants and spectators alike.”
Champion System apparel will be prominently displayed at all four MLT events in 2017 including: Charlotte, NC on May 20th, Atlantic City, NJ on June 3rd, Vail Valley, CO on August 26th, and Cleveland, OH on September 9th.
