Rabobank was already sponsor last year. Apparently, they were satisfied with the sponsorship because they extended the contract with three years. The exact financial sum concerned, however, was not made public by the manager of Rabobank Almere Nathal van Rijn (left on the photo), and Patrick Seinstra (on the right), chairman of Challenge Almere-Amsterdam.
The organization did confirm that companies will be offered more possibilities to participate, i.e. the special Business Triatlon. Companies can enter the triatlon with four colleagues who will participate in a shorter version of the race.
Meanwhile, participants keep on entering Saturday’s triathlon according to Seinstra: “Four hundred participants have already entered the race, opposite last year’s total number of 450 participants. Hopefully we’ll reach 600 participants this year”.
