Revolution3 Triathlon is excited to announce that Pilot Flying J (PFJ) will be the new presenting sponsor for Rev3 Knoxville – May 15 2011, Rev3 Cedar Point- September 11 2011 and Rev3 South Carolina- October 8-9 2011.  Revolution3 Triathlon’s support of a healthy lifestyle inspired Pilot Flying J to sponsor the races as a demonstration of PFJ’s commitment to encouraging better health and wellness among both its employees and customers.  Revolution3 Triathlon believes that the sport of triathlon is not just time spent racing, but also a lifestyle choice that includes the whole family.  A dedication to a healthy and active lifestyle and providing people with the knowledge to make positive changes in their lives is something both Revolution3 Triathlon and Pilot Flying J believe in.  Revolution3 Triathlon began with the idea for a race series that provided not only races for athletes, but also activities for friends, family and spectators.

“Rev3 fills a gap that exists in many triathlon races: it understands the need for total wellness and family participation,“ says Eric Opdyke, Race Director for Revolution3.  “In partnering with Pilot Flying J, we hope to help spread the message that competing in a triathlon is a great way to get in shape and is something that everyone can do.”

Pilot Flying J provides employees with a comprehensive wellness package, and a partnership with Revolution3 is Pilot Flying J’s way of taking their commitment to its employees’ health and wellness to a new level.  Pilot Flying J is a company with a national footprint looking for a way to encourage the employees in all of its locations to seek a healthier lifestyle.

“Pilot has a long history of support for activities that promote health and fitness but all those activities are in our hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee,” said Dave Parmly, Manager of Employee Services.  “We are excited to play a role in promoting fitness and healthy living for the people who work for us as well as our customers in places far from our corporate office.”

Revolution3 Triathlon and Pilot Flying J believe this partnership will help encourage others to discover the benefits of healthy living.  Revolution 3 Triathlon produces races for Sprint, Olympic, Half and Full triathlon distances, and has grown to include races on an international scale.
