Conrad Energy power the future for the Felixstowe Triathlon
The Felixstowe Triathlon is delighted to announce Conrad Energy, the full-service electricity company, as the core sponsor for the 2022 race taking place on August 28th this year, with an option to continue into 2023 as well.
Mark Weston, part of the race organising team, welcomed the addition of a new core sponsor. “East Suffolk District Council were superb in helping launch the event last year, and remain a vital part of our team, but securing the support of a progressive and expanding company like Conrad Energy really gives us a chance to power on to the next level with the event and deliver on the vision we have for a fantastic annual multi-sports spectacle in Felixstowe.”
Chris Shears, Conrad Energy’s Chief Development Officer, was equally delighted with the
announcement of their support for the event. “Conrad Energy is at the forefront of delivering a flexible low carbon economy, and so partnering with the winner of Triathlon England’s Large Event of the Year was a great opportunity to bring our two leading teams together. It gives Conrad Energy the chance to support events in East Suffolk where we are already building projects in Halesworth, and Lowestoft, including one of the UK’s first green hydrogen projects.”
The Felixstowe Triathlon will take place on Sunday August 28th, and entries will close on August 8th.
