COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Triathlon today announced it has renewed its partnership with Ashworth Awards, a leading manufacturer and supplier of custom awards, trophies and medallions, through 2022. The company has served as an Official Awards Partner of USA Triathlon since 2013.

Ashworth Awards will continue to provide awards and finisher medals to participants at USA Triathlon’s four owned National Championships: Duathlon, Collegiate Club & High School, Youth & Junior and Age Group (Sprint and Olympic-distance). The company will also produce awards for select non-owned USA Triathlon National Championships and regional events.

“For the past five years Ashworth Awards has supplied unique, prestigious and high-quality finisher medals and awards to USA Triathlon’s National Championship competitors,” said Chuck Menke, USA Triathlon Chief Marketing Officer. “We are pleased to extend our partnership for another five years as we provide event participants with the recognition they deserve at the highest level of amateur multisport racing.”

“We are thrilled to renew our partnership with USA Triathlon through 2022,” said Kim Ashworth, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Ashworth Awards. “Ashworth Awards believes it is important to give back to our sport and be involved on every level. We are not only manufacturers in the endurance sports industry, but we are athletes ourselves!  We understand what athletes expect to receive at the finish line. They train so hard and deserve the best awards and medallions when they finish. I look forward to our partnership helping events provide long-lasting mementos for athletes to treasure years after they race their event.”

The company has provided awards for some of the most prestigious endurance races in the world, including the IRONMAN World Championship and the Boston Marathon. Its partners also include U.S. Figure Skating, Challenged Athletes Foundation, the American Trail Running Association, Running USA, Girls on the Run and the Road Runners Club of America.
