220 and Castle Series team up for 2013

220 sign ups as media partner for the Markel Castle Triathlon Series


220 Triathlon has become the media partner for the successful Markel Castle Triathlon Series. 220 is keen to be supporting the Series, recognising the growing numbers from a wide spectrum of competitors in the UK, France and Ireland.


The media partnership will see a close editorial following of the Series, branding at the events, and special reader discounts and race places.

Matt Baird from 220 comments: “Since its launch in 2009, we’ve always had a soft spot for the Castle Triathlon Series’ ethos of beginner and paratriathlon-friendly courses, competitive fields for the top age-groupers and elites, and festival-style atmosphere. We’re excited to be joining forces with this major race series and are looking forward to seeing our readers on the start line this summer.”

Brian Adcock, Race Director for the Markel Castle Triathlon Series, is pleased to have 220 on board: “220 Triathlon offers a valuable read for all level of triathletes which complements our audience well. We’re pleased to be able to amplify our editorial offer to competitors along with attracting more triathletes to the Series through the magazine readership.”

The Castle Triathlon Series takes place at Castles Lough Cutra (26 May), Cholmondeley (23 June), Howard (21 July), Chantilly (25 August) and Hever (28-29 September with evening races on 12 June and 3 July). More at www.castletriathlonseries.co.uk.
