PHOENIX, Dec. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Protecht, Inc. announced today its partnership with USA Triathlon, which affords USA Triathlon members the opportunity to get their registration fee reimbursed, should they be unable to participate in a USA Triathlon-owned event due to covered circumstances. The athletes can elect to protect their registration fee via Protecht's proprietary RegShield offering at check-out. The secure, user-friendly option is available as an easy, one-click selection during registration of all USA Triathlon-owned events.
"Many of us at Protecht are triathletes ourselves, and we are proud to offer USA Triathlon members some added comfort with our RegShield product. The pandemic invaded everyone's lives with a thick layer of emotional and physical stress," said Protecht CEO Bryan Derbyshire. "Whether they have their eyes on a coveted prize and want to compete at a high level or simply have a goal to challenge themselves for a PR, it's beyond refreshing to see athletes eager to return to their endurance discipline of choice. Multisport athletes are dedicated to family, work, and training, all of which command an incredible amount of time and energy. RegShield is available so these rockstars can sign up for events again without worry of "what if" scenarios and instead focus on daily life victories leading up to race day."
