by USA Triathlon
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Attendees of USA Triathlon's Endurance Exchange Presented by BOA in January will have the opportunity to dive into the full report and key findings from USA Triathlon’s State of the Sport Survey, which was produced by Sponsorship Research International (SRi) and provides valuable insights on the current state of the endurance sports industry.
“This survey is our dashboard. Just like your training software, Sponsorship Research International has created research that gives us benchmarks and goals to chase. We are endurance athletes, this is how we chase the future,” said Earl Walton, USA Triathlon Director of Education. “The survey conducted by SRi will provide the first true ‘post- pandemic’ view of the endurance sport industry and USA Triathlon membership.”
The State of the Sport Survey will be shared Jan. 25, 2023, in Austin, Texas during Endurance Exchange. A panel of endurance sports industry experts will discuss the key trends and strategies industry leaders can implement in 2023 and beyond. USA Triathlon annual members, including coaches, race directors and club leaders were surveyed to help identify key trends in the endurance sports industry.
