We love “triathlon season” because it means we get to supply a lot of custom sportswear to local Perth businesses who sponsor triathlon teams. The AustralianSuper Corporate Triathlon in Perth is a standout among triathlons in that it is designed for corporate athletes to have their own event, free of professional triathletes. Instead of being all about the individual, it’s all about the team and all about people representing their organisation with pride.
The event will be held on Sunday, 8 March 2015 at Charles Court Reserve, Nedlands. Entries close on Thursday, 5 March 2015 or when the field reaches 1,000 teams, whichever comes first. There are four categories: Male, Female, Mixed and Informal. In the main race, teams of three will contest all three legs each, consisting of 400m swimming, 10k cycling and 4k running. In the Woolworth’s Fun Tri-Relay, teams of three will contest one leg each.
The race will also include the 2015 Australian CEO Super Challenge. CEO’s who wish to participate will have a dedicated starting time for their own competition within a competition.
The organisation promoting this event encourages all teams to proudly wear their corporate colours on race day. We love this idea for a lot of different reasons.
The first reason: it promotes pride and camaraderie in the workplace. When an employee or executive competes in a competition wearing their employer’s uniform in their own corporate colours, they are always proud to be representing that employer. Those who compete also have a camaraderie based on shared experience, especially something as demanding as a triathlon.
Another great reason: that pride and camaraderie often translate to more teamwork in the workplace. When employees and management cooperate in a competition in which all are equals, they are working for a common goal. The next time those people need to collaborate in the workplace, they will be much more likely to work together and tackle their shared tasks with enthusiasm.
Another reason which cannot be overlooked: it is a chance to promote your business. Whenever anyone represents your organisation or business in an event such as a triathlon, it promotes an image of health and wellness. An eye-catching uniform with your company’s name and logo allows you to stand out. This can catch the attention of not only spectators, but other participants, too.
The final reason we like seeing businesses wear corporate colours so much is that there is also a camaraderie between competitors. The AustralianSuper Corporate Triathlon is a great place to network. For executives, management and sales personnel, the phrase “We met at the AustralianSuper Corporate Triathlon” can be a great “icebreaker” or “door-opener.”
Nobody is going to do business with you solely because you participated in the AustralianSuper Corporate Triathlon wearing your corporate colours. However, it can help you get your foot in the door and give you a chance to present your proposal to someone with a friendly ear.
