EVENTS CREW bring the TT TRIATHLON to the Isle of Man

The inaugural Isle of Man TT Triathlon ran on the 30th June 2013 and saw event support and management company, EVENTS CREW, make a significant move into the Sports Organisation market.

Brent Mitchell, Director of Events Crew comments: “We have previously been involved heavily with sporting events and triathlons. However this was the first event we have ran ourselves and that threw up a whole host of new challenges. To receive the feedback we did was incredible and we will look to increase the numbers going forward.”

The TT Triathlon was two races in one, a long and short course triathlon based around the famous Isle of Man TT mountain circuit and the TT grandstand in Douglas. Over 100 athletes turned out for this event and the feedback is that this event will continue to grow. This is the first event to use the “TT” brand outside of the motorcycle races.

As Event organisers, Events Crew worked closely with the on-island partners including the Department for Economic Development, Police, NHS, Coastguard and Highways, as well as a host of sports specific suppliers.

The TT Triathlon required a whole event solution covering Swim, Bike and Run legs, as well as change areas and the Start and Finish lines. A host of equipment was sourced locally with the majority being owned in-house or made specifically for the type of event. This brought the added complication of shipping the equipment to the Isle of Man.

The next event in the new Events Crew sports portfolio will be POWERMAN UK which is taking place in August 11th 2013 in Sherborne, Dorset. This is a duathlon and official qualifier for the World Championships in Zofingen in Switzerland in September. With Events Crew bringing POWERMAN back to the UK this is sure to be another fantastic event.

Events Crew, a Somerset based Events Company, can support all types of events, offering dry hire solutions through to bespoke Event plans. Working with a team of preferred suppliers, Events Crew can be a ‘one-stop’ solution for all your event’s needs. For more information please visit www.eventscrew.com
