Corrigan Sports Signs a Multi-Year Agreement with T-BLOCKS
Next generation bike racks will improve race day experience and organization

Elkridge, MD (March 6, 2017) – Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) announced today it has signed a multi-year deal to utilize T-BLOCKS’ next generation transition bicycle racks at the Columbia and Iron Girl Columbia triathlons.

T-BLOCKS can be individually adjusted to hold the width of each bike tire perfectly and give participants easy access to their bicycles during competition. T-BLOCKS were created to organize transition areas more efficiently and provide individual space for each participant.

Marcus Robinson, T-BLOCKS inventor, said, “CSE’s decision to enter a multi-year agreement with T-BLOCKS says a lot about their commitment to positioning these iconic races as world-class events.”

Lee Corrigan, president of CSE said, “Our dedication to bringing full-time professional management to these events is reflected in every decision we make. T-BLOCKS will help triathletes transition into the bicycle stage more efficiently, which equates to a better overall race time.”

Centennial Park in Ellicott City, Maryland will host the Columbia Triathlon on May 21st and the Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon on August 20th. For more information on both events, visit www.trimaryland.com.

Corrigan Sports Will Lead Production and Marketing of Triathlons in 2017

 The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults Formalizes Triathlon Partnership with Corrigan Sports Enterprises

Corrigan Sports will lead production and marketing of Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon and Columbia Triathlon, Ulman Cancer Fund remains beneficiary

BALTIMORE – October 25, 2016 – Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults and Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) announces a strategic partnership to support and expand the Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon and the Columbia Triathlon & Duathlon beginning in 2017. CSE will lead the organization and execution of the two races and Ulman Cancer Fund will continue to benefit from funds raised to impact the lives of young adults and their loved ones impacted by cancer.
The partnership will help organizers to expand participation in the races, position them as world-class events and continue the great sports tradition within the region. Ulman Cancer Fund has enjoyed a strong relationship with CSE for more than 10 years, working together on the organization’s fundraising platforms.

“Corrigan Sports Enterprises has a strong reputation for being a leader in event production and sports marketing, and we’re eager to partner with them to sustain these important events,” said Brian Satola, Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults COO & Race Director, UCF Races. “Bringing in a strong partner positions the races for future success and enhances our ability for them to grow.”

For more than 34 years, the Columbia Triathlon has attracted athletes from across the United States and around the world to Howard County to compete in the acclaimed Olympic distance race.
The Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon is the premier women’s event and largest endurance race of its kind. The popular sprint distance race recently marked its 11th year with more than 1800 participants.

“We are excited to bring these two world class endurance events into our portfolio and to continue to enrich the community, celebrate the achievements of each participant while supporting the mission of the Ulman Cancer Fund,” said Lee Corrigan, CSE president.

The Columbia Triathlon is currently scheduled for May 21, 2017 and the Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon will be August 20, 2017. Both events kick off at Centennial Park in Ellicott City, Maryland

Columbia Tri Registration to Open on Jan. 20

Tri-Header
Columbia Tri Registration Opens Jan. 20

Corrigan Sports is excited to be working with the Ulman Cancer Fund on this year’s triathlon events. As announced earlier, CSE will lead the organization and execution of the two races and Ulman Cancer Fund will continue to benefit from funds raised to impact the lives of young adults and their loved ones affected by cancer.

The partnership will help the organizers to expand participation in the races, position them as world-class events and continue the great sports tradition within the region. Ulman Cancer Fund has enjoyed a strong relationship with CSE for more than 10 years, working together on the organization’s fundraising platforms.

Not much will change in the first year as we learn more about the event but we will be adding some CSE touches to make the event the best it can be. We have already lined up some great partnerships with sponsors such as Nava Health & Vitality Center and Columbia Association that will immediately benefit the participants as they continue to train and get ready for event day. These details and others will be announced in the coming weeks.

One change you can look for is a new website. We will be launching trimaryland.com on January 20 for registration and to provide all the pertinent information that participants will need about both the Columbia Triathlon and the Iron Girl Triathlon. This launch will coincide with the opening of registration for the Columbia Triathlon. Event day for the Columbia Tri is May 21, 2017.

Again, we are excited and honored to be involved in these great events and look forward to growing them along side of UCF and each of the participants.

Prior to the website launch, you can find basic event information at UCFRaces.com and send any questions or concerns to [email protected]
