The Challenge Weymouth triathlon team has joined forces with local businesses to launch the brand new Challenge Weymouth Reward Scheme.

The scheme has been introduced to celebrate the first year of the event, and maximise the strong local links that have been forged by the events team.

It offers a number of exclusive offers which have been put together especially for Challenge Weymouth competitors and supporters, giving them special discounts across several local Weymouth businesses – including shops, hotels and restaurants across the town.

Alan Rose, Challenge Weymouth Event Director said: “As many of our Challenge Weymouth athletes are likely to visit Weymouth ahead of September, we thought it would be good to offer some special deals for them to enjoy.

“And recognising that they will travel with family and friends, we have also opened up this special deal to include them too.”

He added: “We have formed close relationships with the local Weymouth community and this is also our way of thanking them for their on-going support.

Councillor Ian Bruce, Brief Holder for Tourism said: “The Challenge Weymouth Reward scheme is the perfect way to offer a friendly welcome to Challenge Weymouth competitors and their supporters.

“We have a very lively summer of activities in Weymouth and will be hosting a range of events, festivals and days out for the whole family.

“We look forward to welcoming many of you down to our beautiful coastal town.”

People who have already entered should be receiving their Challenge Weymouth membership card, along with three key-fobs for your closest family and friends in the next few days.

To find out more about the offers that are available go to the new ‘Rewards’ page on the Challenge Weymouth website. If you are in Weymouth checking out the course then you can also look out for the Rewards Scheme posters in shops, hotels and restaurants across the town and surrounding area.
