Superior Man Triathlon Launches 2015 Registration

Minimize
Duluth, MN, December 18, 2014— Today the Superior Man Triathlon launched 2015 registration with a new VIP+ Package add-on giving athletes the ability to protect their investment along Superior Man Triathlon Duluthwith a number of other benefits.

The VIP+ Package affords athletes a “no questions asked” option to defer their entry to 2016, an option to drop down to the shorter 41.5 event, and the option to transfer their entry. Other athlete benefits include: receiving race packet, numbers, and shirt in the mail a week before the event, free parking passes ($10 value), and an expedited packet pickup process. The price of the VIP+ Package is just $35 and athletes can easily decline the package during registration to lock in the standard registration rate.

“Twenty three percent of our registrants on average never even make it to the starting line”, says Executive Race Director Clint Agar. “As a destination race there are a number of barriers including travel, vacation time, injury, and things in life that pop up after registering for an event as far out as 9 months. So protecting our athlete’s investments seemed like a problem worth solving. “

Clint goes on, “Initially we thought the way to do this was to provide an insurance option for athletes. But when we started looking at what race protection insurance entailed we saw some major problems: 1) Athletes had to go through the burden of proof in showing a medical issue that kept them from competing 2) The insurance coverage was only covering essentially medical related claims and 3) The customer interaction was happening with an insurance company not the event.”

“We believe that what we’ve created is about to set a new standard for registration add-ons amongst Minnesota endurance events because it removes barriers to entry, protects the athlete’s investment, and adds benefits without raising the base cost of entry. Most importantly it is in the best interest of all athletes at heart.” says Clint Agar.
