Quintana Roo and Ironman Announce Partnership

Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Quintana Roo and Ironman have announced that QR will be the official bike course sponsor for Ironman Chattanooga and Ironman Lake Placid for the next three years. Additionally, QR has committed to expand its brand and staff presence at all North American Ironman races.
 
“The opportunity to partner with Ironman for these two events is really important to us," said Peter
Hurley, CEO of Quintana Roo. "Ironman Lake Placid is a legendary race with an amazing history in the
sport of triathlon.
We couldn’t be more excited for Ironman Chattanooga. It’s our hometown and we
can’t wait to help show it off to the tri community."
 
QR has been a part of the Ironman Expo Village for the last three seasons. In addition to the
sponsorship of those two events, the footprint increase at all of the North American Ironman event
expos will help to further service QR athletes during race week.
 
“We are thrilled to partner with a unique company like Quintana Roo. For 25 years, they have solely been
vested in triathlon specific gear, evolving right alongside the sport,” said Carola Ross, chief sales officer
of Ironman. “Quintana Roo brings immediate credibility to the Ironman event experience.”
