As part of its mission to reduce event costs and open up triathlon-hosting to more cities and National Federations, World Triathlon has teamed up with the award-winning event planning platform OnePlan, designing a tool to help ease the workflow of LOCs and simplify the staging of the world’s biggest triathlon races.
The site planning tool will allow for highly accurate and collaborative planning between the World Triathlon Operations team and Sports department and the LOCs, where everything from interactive 3D mock-ups right down to barrier placement and quantities can be set up. By combining mapping and visual planning tools, the result is a considerably more hands-on and manageable approach, also allowing less-experienced LOCs to be guided through every step of hosting World Triathlon events safely and efficiently and reducing need for time-consuming site visits.
The ‘OnePlan for Triathlons’ system can be used – for free – by any triathlon organiser around the world.
“The benefits of using OnePlan will be felt immediately by all our stakeholders by enabling us to have every element of every event visible in one place, right down to the smallest details,” said World Triathlon Sport Director Gergely Markus. “Hosting triathlons requires a lot of collaboration from many areas. By using OnePlan, we can reduce time and costs for our LOCs while offering the vital reassurance that all the necessary elements are in place, making hosting World Triathlon events in major cities and new regions more attractive, more straightforward and far easier to manage.”
Commenting on the partnership, OnePlan CEO Paul Foster said, “Our partnership with World Triathlon will deliver a consistent approach for LOCs to plan triathlons, meaning significant time and cost savings, plus sustainability benefits, by reducing the need for site visits. Designed by World Triathlon and powered by OnePlan, any triathlon organiser worldwide can now use the platform to plan and manage their events.”
