Triathlon Ireland and TrainingPeaks Announce New Partnership

Triathlon Ireland, the national governing body for triathlon, duathlon, and aquathlon in Ireland, has selected TrainingPeaks as its new official Training Software Supplier. According to the agreement, Triathlon Ireland’s Elite athletes, Coaches, and Junior Squad will use TrainingPeaks’ triathlon training log to plan and analyze workouts and nutrition; monitor fitness trends over time; and communicate between coach and athlete.

Triathlon Ireland’s Lead Cycling Coach Tommy Evans said, “TrainingPeaks will be a huge resource for our coaches and athletes, enabling them to analyze and monitor their training based on cutting-edge, scientific research. Our coaches who have been using TrainingPeaks for the past year have been very pleased with the results.”

As part of the agreement, all Triathlon Ireland members will receive a 20% discount on TrainingPeaks Premium Athlete Edition software. Triathlon Ireland coaches will receive 20% off the monthly subscription price to TrainingPeaks coaching software, for the “Unlimited Basic Client” package. This will enable them to coach any number of clients that have a Basic Athlete Edition account.

TrainingPeaks Co-Founder and Chief Evangelist, Dirk Friel remarked, “Triathlon is one of the fastest-growing sports in Ireland, and it’s a promising new market for us. TrainingPeaks is honored and excited to be selected as Triathlon Ireland’s official training software.”

According to Triathlon Ireland, triathlon has grown from 30 events and fewer than 600 members in Ireland, to 160 events and approximately 6,500 members in the past five years.
