Yellow Jersey Insurance has signed a two-year sponsorship deal with the Castle Triathlon Series to ‘offer innovative insurance solutions tailored for triathletes including a new race entry fee and day bicycle cover.’
Yellow Jersey will be offering all Castle Triathlon Series competitors the opportunity to purchase an event fee and race day bicycle insurance policy when they sign up to a Castle Triathlon event. This event day insurance will cover them for their race fee in case they need to withdraw due to injury or unforeseen circumstances as well as on the day bicycle insurance. The bicycle insurance will cover competitors’ bikes for theft while in transition and any crash/accidental damage while in use on the course.
Castle Triathlon Series competitors will also be able to benefit from discounts on Yellow Jersey’s annual bicycle insurance and travel insurance products.
Yellow Jersey’s Managing Director, Ryan Georgiades said “We’re really excited about this new partnership to launch our new event day insurance. We’ve long been looking for a way to offer something for customers who just want to have cover for their race day and this is the perfect platform to be able to do this.
“Most of our team have taken part in a Castle Triathlon Series race in the past, I raced Hever Castle Triathlon a few years ago and really enjoyed the experience that the Castle Triathlon Series provide for their competitors. We’re looking forward to working with the team to grow this partnership and at the same time add some real value to their competitors.”
The Castle Triathlon Series hosts six weekend triathlon festivals at iconic castles across the UK, Ireland and France – with distances ranging from juniors to, starter triathlons all the way up to long distance. The series has grown year-one-year with 18,000 competitors expected in 2018 as it celebrates its 10th anniversary.
The series continues to adapt, having introduced Mixed Team Relays to the event weekends in 2017; and 2018 will see more race formats including off road half marathons and swim-only racing at each weekend event.
Brian Adcock, founder and Managing Director of the Castle Triathlon Series added, “As the Castle Triathlon Series continues to grow, we are constantly looking for ways in which we can add value for our competitors. Insurance is something that we are constantly asked about, and it’s fantastic to be able to offer event day insurance for their bicycle and race fees to all our competitors to give them peace of mind on race day, as well as access to a range of excellent discounts. We look forward to welcoming the Yellow Jersey team into the fold.”
