The Evolution of Challenge Penticton Canada

March 22nd, 2014

Challenge Penticton Canada

For anyone involved in a new business or the launch of a (relatively) new brand into a market, this week’s announcement from Challenge Penticton Canada and the City of Penticton would been seen as a next step in our evolution.

For triathletes, it may have been surprising. We’re building this race experience in the gorgeous community of Penticton for you, our athletes. If you were right here, we’d ask you to come over for a cup of coffee and chat. But since you’re there, and we’re here, grab a cup and keep reading: we’ll go over a few things.

Challenge Penticton Canada is operated by a society, the Penticton Triathlon Race Society. This Society is governed by a Board of Directors – 7 volunteer business owners and triathletes in our community. We have an amazing team of staff (Kelly, Steve, Lascha), contractors and oodles of amazing volunteers, all working ridiculous hours. We are all continuing exactly as-is to the end of race day 2014 – and nothing will change that.

The PTRS Board of Directors has made a recommendation to the City of Penticton to re-evaluate the operating model – asking the question “Could Challenge Penticton be even better if it was run by a private owner; one that is local, completely 100% committed to our community, to giving back, and to most importantly the sport of triathlon?”

Maybe. So why not give a group an opportunity to get creative and present operating proposals to us for consideration? We consider this good business, a healthy way of ensuring the race is sustainable and set up for long-term success

And the timing is good. We couldn’t have done this without a year or two under our belt – so that potential respondents would have the confidence to know that they can build based on a solid foundation, instead of asking them to build from no foundation at all (what the PTRS had to do). Any change won’t come into effect until after 2014’s race is done, as well.

Is Challenge Penticton Canada for sale? Absolutely not. Are we opening the door for others to take the reins and make this the most successful race and festival experience for athletes, businesses, and our community? YES.

Still have more questions? Give us a call (250.276.2163). We’d love to talk.
