Sports Tours International goes into tri
Top cycle tour operator Sports Tours International is expanding with the recent addition of triathlon, and is set to take triathletes around the world to major events.
“Sports Tours identified triathlon as a growth area, and realises that international travel is important to many competitors and enthusiasts. With a 25-year track record of assisting customers to travel to events across the globe, it was a natural add-on to the already successful product offered from the Manchester based tour operator."
Commenting on the move into triathlons, Sports Tours Chief Executive Chris Bird says: "Having been in the business for almost 18 months, I felt that the experience of our team and the skills they have, could provide a fantastic service to triathletes. This is very much a natural progression for us. We are the market leader in running tours from the UK to iconic races such as the New York Marathon, as well as being Europe’s number one cycling tour operator and the only official UK partner of the Tour de France."
"Since our online triathlon announcement we have been inundated with enquiries from event organisers in the UK and around the world, looking to partner with us to offer our travel services to their competitors. It has not taken long for the word to get around regarding our move into triathlons. It has also been very helpful to have a successful 25-year track record in delivering a quality service to our customers too."
Sports Tours are also the official travel partner to one of the World’s largest sporting events companies IMG, and will specialise in travel to triathlons in London, Stockholm and Barcelona. Closer to home, Sports Tours have teamed up with Tatton Park in Cheshire, as the official Sports travel partner for the inaugural Tatton Park Triathlon on June 8th.
Additional to the triathlon race activity, Sports Tours will be offering specialist training camps in Lanzarote at Club La Santa, where they are the exclusive sales agents for the UK and Ireland.
