Revolution3 Triathlon (Rev3) has announced that it will offer a special discount for all US military veterans. The race series will also extend this discount to all current military members and first responders.
In honour of all past and current service members, Rev3 will focus ‘significant efforts to recognize our nation’s veterans and the sacrifices they made to keep our country safe from all threats, both foreign and domestic.’
“I am honoured to be able to offer this discount as just a small token of appreciation to all of those that have served our country,” stated Charlie Patten, CEO of Revolution3 Triathlon.
“I know it is not enough, but I’m not sure we can ever truly repay those who have chosen to voluntarily lay their life on the line for our safety. I was raised in a military family and served in the army myself, so our nation’s veterans hold a close place in my heart.”
In addition to the discount on all race entries, Rev3 also offers a ‘no questions asked’ refund or transfer policy for all service members who are called to duty during a time when they were going to be racing. To take it one step further, refunds and transfers will also be offered if a military activation causes a break of training and makes it impossible to make it to the starting line in proper condition.
Other programs and perks will be added to the 2016 Revolution3 Triathlon Series, such as a dedicated division at all events, for current and retired military members and first responders. Furthermore, the Rev3 staff will be placing American flags at the transition spot of all athletes who identify themselves as military members or first responders and each athlete will have special bib numbers designed to recognize them while out on the course.
“We are thrilled to offer something unique to those who serve us on a daily basis, but often go unnoticed and are always under-appreciated,” said Eric Opdyke, Director of Operations for Rev3.
He added “Rev3 is an American made organization, so what better way to show that then by supporting the special individuals who serve our great nation! In the next couple of weeks, we will be announcing a renewed partnership with Team Red, White and Blue, so stay tuned for more information about a relationship that we truly value.”
