2020 Zofingen ITU Powerman Travel Grants Now Available for Elite Athletes

The application period for travel grants is now open for qualified US elite athletes.

Grants, up to $1500 per athlete, will be awarded to 2 male and 2 female athletes to represent the United States in the Elite Categories at the 2020 ITU Long Distance Duathlon World Championship (Powerman Zofingen) in Zofingen, Switzerland. The race date is September 20, 2020.

Having traveled overseas to compete, I recognize the financial barriers and lack of incentives for elite athletes. With these travel grants, I aim to make travel more feasible and provide incentive for elite athletes to participate in the elite categories of the Long Distance Duathlon World Championships.

Athletes must possess USA Triathlon Elite License (in duathlon) and be eligible to compete in the Elite Category of the World Championship. If you do not currently possess a USAT elite duathlete license, you may apply for one on the USA Triathlon Website.

For more information about Powerman Zofingen check out the race website here. Or the ITU page here.

The travel grant application process is now open. All applications must be completed by July 1, 2020.
