PTC Sponsors

Our sponsors are the backbone of the Pittsburgh Triathlon Club.  They support the performance and health of our athletes by providing quality products and services, often at a substantial discount.  Many of our sponsors are athletes themselves!

In turn, we support our sponsors with our business, our feedback, and our referrals.  If you use or have used one of our sponsors, please take a moment to complete this VERY brief survey.  Thanks!

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, or you would like to recommend a sponsor, please contact us at [email protected].

Discounts require either a valid membership card or an online promotional code.  We are working on a members-only site where you can access these.  In the meantime, if you require a card or a code, please contact us at [email protected]

SWORD Performance Products – Founded in 2013 by two doctors who are endurance athletes themselves, Scott and Shawn were frustrated with the current fueling options in the sports nutrition world. Some drinks much too sweet, some not containing enough sodium, and some that contained artificial ingredients, preservatives, and other components that just left them puzzled on why they would be in there? However, given their education and experience working with athletes, they were uniquely qualified to develop something better. Don’t get the wrong idea though. They weren’t in the lab mixing chemicals over beakers. They were in their home kitchens armed with mixing spoons and blenders using real, natural ingredients. Now just a few years later, their endurance drink mix is one of the hottest new nutrition products in the triathlon community, and they look forward to fueling PTC triathletes of all levels to push their boundaries.  PTC members receive a 25% discount on all products from Sword’s online shop.
