Aquaphor announced today its role as the new title sponsor of the Aquaphor New York City Triathlon. This partnership, with race organizer Korff Enterprises, is a three-year agreement that includes naming rights, as well as a variety of marketing and promotional components for the Olympic-distance race.

“Today’s announcement underscores Aquaphor’s commitment to athletes, one of our core target audiences.  We are very excited to partner with the New York City Triathlon team in order to spread the message of the benefits of Aquaphor to triathletes both to those who will be in New York for the race and around the country,” said Magnus Jonsson, Vice President, Marketing, Beiersdorf Inc. “We look forward to helping these hard-core athletes train and compete to ensure that when their skin is in crisis, Aquaphor can help to maximize their performance.”

“The New York City Triathlon has helped make New York the triathlon capital of America,” said John Korff, President of Korff Enterprises, organizer of the event. “With the addition of Aquaphor as the title sponsor, we’ve partnered with a quality brand that will enhance the athlete experience.”

More than 3,000 athletes from 44 states and 10 countries will compete in the 2012 Aquaphor New York City Triathlon on July 8, 2012.  The race includes a 1.5 kilometer swim in the Hudson River, 40 kilometer bike on the Henry Hudson Parkway and 10 kilometer run in Central Park.

As title sponsor, Aquaphor will help participants prepare and/or heal their skin during the tough swim bike and run, allowing them to achieve top performance at this year’s event. The company will sponsor some of the race’s most popular elements – including the Diaper Derby, athlete expo and finishers’ area – and provide its popular Aquaphor Healing Ointment and Lip Repair products to participants and fans.
