UK-based biomarker testing and tracking company Forth Edge has announced that it will be an official partner of this year’s IRONMAN Wales event. The team at Forth Edge are reportedly delighted to be working with IRONMAN Wales, and are ‘very much looking forward to supporting this year’s event in Tenby, Wales on 10th September.’
To celebrate the partnership the team will be offering registered athletes an exclusive 50% off their first biomarker test. Over the coming weeks they will be offering advice and tips through a series of Facebook posts, details of which will be available on the IRONMAN Wales Facebook page. The Forth team will also be set up at the IM Wales race expo all weekend, to talk with athletes in the days leading up to the race itself.
Billed as the first of its kind in the UK, Forth Edge allows athletes of all levels to have access to biomarker profiling, along with a comprehensive digital platform to track changes and patterns. The company adds that this provides valuable insight into their ‘health on the inside’ and by testing and tracking these biomarkers, athletes can obtain information into when they are over trained, under-rested or simply in need of a little bit of extra recovery time.
For IRONMAN athletes, the Forth team offer an ‘Endurance’ test package which tests a number of specific markers to help optimise training over extreme distances, covering all aspects of health, fatigue, injury risk and recovery.
Now in its seventh year, IRONMAN Wales is renowned as one of the most challenging races on the IRONMAN circuit, and is also the first in a long line of qualifying events for the 2018 IRONMAN World Championships in Kona. This makes it a popular choice for athletes, attracting top names from around the globe.
Sarah Bolt, Founder of Forth Edge said, “We are delighted to be working with IRONMAN Wales, and look forward to working with those competing this year to help them to get the very most out of themselves on race day. Our aim is to help athletes understand more about their ‘health on the inside’, so they can recognise how their body is responding to training and lifestyle choices, and ultimately perform at their highest potential. We can’t wait to meet everyone.”
