Sports Tours International, the UK’s leading multisport tour operator has been announced as an Official Travel Partner of Star Events, organiser of TriStar, GranFondo and StarRun Events.
The appointment as Official Travel Partner means Sports Tours International will be able to offer guaranteed entries to a number of the TriStar events and give all levels of triathletes the chance to take part in a sporting format that has gained momentum in the world of triathlon.
Sports Tours International Chief Executive Chris Bird said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for us; Star Events is continually introducing new events to their calendar and is becoming increasingly popular amongst the tri community.”
A number of the TriStar events consist of the new 111 Triathlon format – 1K swim, 100K bike and 10K run – and are seen as a good way to introduce triathlon beginners to the sport.
Bird added, “Over the last few years we have seen many cyclists, both amateur and ex professional, that have tried their hand at triathlon. With the heavy emphasis on biking, the 111 format is a perfect introduction for any cyclist wanting a new challenge.”
