In partnership with the local businesses of Weymouth, the team at Challenge UK have confirmed the launch of the new Challenge Weymouth Reward Scheme. The scheme has been introduced to celebrate the first year of the Challenge Family’s UK event in Weymouth, and further maximise the strong local links that have been forged by the events team.
It offers a number of exclusive offers that have been put together especially for Challenge Weymouth competitors and supporters, allowing them to enjoy a number of special discounts across many popular local Weymouth businesses – including shops, hotels and restaurants across the town.
Alan Rose, Challenge Weymouth Event Director is excited to be in a position to launch this scheme. He said, “As many of our Challenge Weymouth athletes are likely to visit Weymouth ahead of September, we thought it would be good to offer some special deals for them to enjoy. And recognising that they will travel with family and friends, we have also opened up this special deal to include them too.”
He continued, “We have formed extremely close relationships with the local Weymouth community and this is also our way of thanking them for their on-going support and also help strengthen these partnerships moving forwards. We look forward to welcoming lots of you down to Weymouth over the next few months, and hope that your training is going well so far!”
Weymouth Councillor Ian Bruce, the Brief Holder for Tourism in the town, is thoroughly supportive of the scheme and also very excited about welcoming the event to Weymouth in September.
He said, “The Challenge Weymouth Reward scheme is the perfect way to offer a friendly welcome to Challenge Weymouth competitors and their supporters. We have a very lively summer of activities here in Weymouth and will be hosting a range of events, festivals and days out for the whole family. We look forward to welcoming many of you down to our beautiful coastal town.”
Athletes competing in Challenge Weymouth 2014 will soon receive a Challenge Weymouth membership card, along with three key-fobs for closest family and friends. To find out more about the offers that are available athletes will be able to go to the new ‘Rewards’ page on the Challenge Weymouth website.
For those in Weymouth checking out the course, athletes are also advised to look out for the Rewards Scheme posters in shops, hotels and restaurants across the town and surrounding area.
