LOS ANGELES, Calif. – June 4, 2013 – More than 18,000 participants in triathlon events produced by Pacific Sports LLC will now experience swim “surroundance” by blueseventy, a swim industry leader in technical performance products. Beginning with the Cleveland Triathlon on August 4th, blueseventy will be the Official Swim Sponsor across Pacific Sports’ six triathlon events in the U.S.: Cleveland; Eugene OR; Long Beach CA; Los Angeles CA; Newport Beach CA and Brooklyn NY.
“This is a great fit for us and an exciting opportunity for our competitors to experience some of the best swim apparel and equipment in the world,” said Pacific Sports President Jack Caress. “Partners like blueseventy bring a world-class persona to our events and support our theme of living an active lifestyle. We wanted blueseventy to ‘own’ the swim category at our races, and they will.”
With category exclusivity, blueseventy apparel, equipment, technology and branding will surround competitors from the pre-race Expos through the Finish Line Festivals. Under the two-year agreement, blueseventy will provide product in competitor goody bags, rental wetsuits with the opportunity to purchase and merchandise for sale at the Expos.
