Compeed teams up with USA Triathlon as the exclusive Blister Care partner, to support athletes and active life enthusiasts.
Compeed is the perfect companion for triathletes, as it is made to withstand extreme sporting and weather conditions. Compeed is waterproof and sweat-resistant, protects against rubbing, acts like a second skin and stays in place for several days, making it the ideal blister cushion for active lifestyle enthusiasts and multisport athletes alike.
USA Triathlon is the national governing body for triathlon, aquathlon, paratriathlon and other multisport disciplines in the United States. With nearly 500,000 members, USA Triathlon is the largest multisport organization in the world.
USA Triathlon sanctions more than 4,300 events with thousands of participants, both in person and virtually. Compeed will offer its Advanced Blister Care products for sampling at USA Triathlon’s four owned National Championships—Collegiate Club, Duathlon, Toyota Age Group and Youth & Junior—as well as the Legacy Triathlon and Toyota USA Paratriathlon National Championships.
In addition, Compeed will launch a Race Director Program, providing directors of USA Triathlon-sanctioned events the opportunity to receive free products to sample at those events.
Compeed also will be a Contributing Partner of USA Triathlon-hosted virtual events, which in 2021 include the #DreamingSeason Virtual Challenge, USA Duathlon Virtual Run-Bike-Run and the Power Within Virtual Tri to Tokyo.
In addition to its grassroots work with athletes, coaches and race directors—as well as the USA Triathlon Foundation—USA Triathlon provides leadership and support to elite athletes competing at international events, including International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championships, Pan American Games and the Olympic and Paralympic Games. USA Triathlon is a proud member of the ITU and the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee.
