Enhanced E-Commerce Platform Part of Overall Relationship with Endurance House
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Triathlon today announced it has relaunched its official e-commerce platform, USATStore.com. The online store, which features a new line of branded casual wear and training apparel, is powered and operated by Endurance House Inc. Through a new four-year relationship, the retail franchiser and online outlet also receives exclusive rights to handle all on-site and digital sales of event-specific apparel and merchandise for USA Triathlon’s four owned National Championships: Age Group (Sprint & Olympic Distances), Collegiate Club & High School, Duathlon, and Youth & Junior.
In addition to an expanding line of USA Triathlon-branded products, USATStore.com will now include several new features and functionalities, including a responsive design. And with Endurance House serving as its official merchandiser, USA Triathlon will offer in-line products at all four owned National Championships for the first time.
Throughout 2017 all athletes who register or renew as USA Triathlon annual members will be eligible to receive a free swag bag of gear through USATStore.com with a minimum purchase of $25. The swag bag will vary each month, with top-end product from different USA Triathlon partners as well as brands carried by Endurance House.
In the near future USA Triathlon plans to expand its distribution by working with Endurance House’s 16 brick-and-mortar franchises to help introduce product to the stores. The 16 franchise stores are located across the United States and will have the ability to carry USA Triathlon-branded product.
“Endurance House is thrilled to work with USA Triathlon to help promote and grow our great sport,” said Jamie Osborn, Endurance House Founder. “Our two organizations are firmly rooted in the ideal that healthy, active lifestyles through triathlon participation transforms lives for the better.
