H-E-B named presenting sponsor of Republic of Texas Triathlon

High Five Events, Jack & Adam’s Bicycles, and Ryan Sanders Entertainment are proud to announce H-E-B grocery store as a presenting sponsor of The Republic of Texas Triathlon, to be held in Corpus Christi, Texas on April 14-15, 2012.

The Republic of Texas Triathlon is a two day festival consisting of three triathlons, a fun run for kids, and a health and fitness expo. The triathlons include a Sprint distance (400m swim, 11-mile bike and 2 mile run), Olympic distance (1500m swim, 40 kilometer bike and 10 kilometer run), and a Half Distance (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run) which make the event appealing for both beginners and seasoned triathletes. This event is produced by Austin, Texas based High Five Events.

“We think being healthy and active should be fun, and not a chore”, says Dan Carroll of High Five Events. “We love triathlon and we think it is a perfect goal for those looking to make a change and to lead a healthy lifestyle. Our events are designed as a challenge to people of all abilities and backgrounds, and also to be a celebration of fitness. They are known for being a lot of fun. We are thrilled to partner with H-E-B on our biggest events. Together we hope to show many people a fun path to health and fitness.”

“We at H-E-B are excited about helping Texans fight the war against obesity by finding new ways to enjoy physical activity! As we partner with High Five Events with the Republic of Texas Triathlon in Corpus Christi and the Kerrville Triathlon, we are proud to support opportunities for Texans to Tri-it!”, says Craig Boyan, President & Chief Operating Officer, H-E-B Grocery Company.

Proceeds from The Republic of Texas Triathlon will benefit ACTIVE Life (http://www.activelifehq.org/) and several other non-profits and fitness programs.
