The USA Triathlon Northeast Region consists of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
Attention Race Directors in the Northeast Region
As you know the USA Triathlon Northeast Region over the past few years has designed five races to host its regional championships. The races were selected via a bi-annual call for nominations and those selected were given a two-year designation along with a small stipend to offset some marketing expenses. While this program has been successful in many regards, we are looking to revamp the program starting in 2017.
In as such, we are now issuing a new Request for Proposals to designate one event weekend or festival to host all the championship races for 2017 and 2018. This race will be the only designated USAT regional championship in the Northeast (NY, CT, MA, ME, NH, VT, and RI).
The attached RFP is designed for those USA Triathlon Certified Race Directors interested to submit their best and brightest idea(s) for a festival. The RFP contains a simple form to complete no later than September 23, 2016. The only “must have” requirement is that the race has an Age Group championship and at least one other race. Basically, we are looking for creative ways to create excitement and loyalty and ultimately membership in USA Triathlon.
The details are included in the RFP itself. Once designated, and all verifications are completed (and required documents are signed), the selected race festival will be eligible for financial support (capped at $5,000) and social media assistance from the Region. Other mandates are laid out in the RFP.
We hope you are as excited about this new process as we are. If you have any questions, please reach out to USATNE Vice Chair, Justin Model (email@example.com).
