Chattanooga, Tenn. – Kenco will make a big splash as a sponsor of the legendary IRONMAN triathalon when it comes to Chattanooga this fall.

As a provider of integrated logistics solutions, real estate services and material-handling equipment, Kenco will be the Swim Course presenting sponsor and will handle equipment and supply logistics for the event.

“Kenco is proud to help bring IRONMAN to Chattanooga for the first time,” says Senior Vice President Sean Coakley. “We are headquartered in a beautiful city with fantastic recreational opportunities, and we can’t wait to show it off to the IRONMAN athletes. Plus, our sponsorship is an inspiration for our own employees to stay active and fit.”

In the spirit of the event, many of Kenco’s 3,500 employees are participating in their own full distance triathalon. Between May 1 and September 28, Kenco employees from more than 90 locations across North America are working to complete 2.4 miles of swimming, 112 miles of biking and 26.2 miles of running—the same distances that will be covered in the IRONMAN Chattanooga event. However, rather than one day to cover the distance, Kenco associates have three months!

Little Debbie IRONMAN Chattanooga to Benefit the Cohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America is one of 17 North American IRONMAN triathlons and will be held on Sunday, September 28, 2014 with more than 2,000 athletes expected for the event.
