Official sponsor of the BAY ISLANDS TRIATHLON
The Powerade Bay Islands Triathlon will take place this next March 25th, in the island of Roatan, part of the Bay Islands in Honduras. An international sports event which has gained importance year after year nationally, and internationally. Honduras is no exception to the rapid growth of the sport of triathlon, where since the creation of this event the country has seen the number of events grow from 2 a year to up to 10 a year including duathlons, and aquathlons.
The Powerade Bay Islands Triathlon attracts more than 150 athletes each year from several countries around the world. In 2005 we counted with the presence of Greg Bennett, Matt Reed, and Susan Williams. The presence of professional triathletes brings an important segment of the press to the island of Roatan, along with family members and friends. The Powerade Bay Islands Triathlon is also known as one of the most beautiful triathlon destinations, as well as one of the most difficult due to the hilly terrain, and natural beauty of Roatan.
This year, the official sponsor of the Bay Islands Triathlon is Powerade®, a brand which is closely related to sports, which with its high hydrating ability, is an important element in enabling athletes the successful completion of an event of this nature. In addition Powerade® contains vitamin B, which prevents muscular fatigue, and helps metabolize carbohydrates as a source of energy and comes in different flavors like Lemon-Lime, Orange-Mandarin, Blue Avalanche. It is a great pleasure for Powerade® to sponsor an event of this magnitude and promises to be very close to each one of the athletes, supporting them and hydrating them.
During the Powerade Bay Islands Triathlon athletes will give the very best of themselves thanks to their great physical condition, this will make it a very competitive event, highlighting the importance of the sport in the world.
