Sponsor backing for IRONMAN world champs podium contender Corinne

I met the lovely triathlete Corinne Clark by chance at a friend’s hen do this summer! I was impressed by her self-discipline, attitude and quiet modesty, as well as how fit she looked.

Now I hear the good news that Corinne has been given some much deserved backing as she heads to the VEGA IRONMAN World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.

Independent south west based PR consultancy redheadPR is sponsoring Corinne, 34, as she attempts a podium place at the inaugural KONA™ race in October.

Sara Tye, founder and managing director of redheadPR, said: “I’m delighted to support such a fantastic challenge. On a personal level and as a business, I am committed to supporting challenges such as these.

“A triathlete myself, I understand the dedication, discipline and hard work that goes into completing an IRONMAN. I know that without sponsorship, athletes who have a day job and work find it hard to train. Sponsoring them goes a long way to ensuring they can do the training they need.”

It’s not the first time redheadPR have sponsored athletes. redheadPR sponsored Kev Tonner as he took on the 2014 Edmonton ITU Sprint Distance Triathlon World Championships. In 2015, the company was the media supporter of the RTTC National Championship.

IRONMAN World Champs

The VEGA IRONMAN World Championship takes place in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii on October 13, 2019. Corinne will join over 2,000 athletes who’ll embark on a 140.6-mile journey, proving the ultimate test of body, mind and spirit to earn the title of IRONMAN.

Corinne is no stranger to endurance challenges. She has previously represented Great Britain for Sprint and Olympic distance triathlons, travelling as far as Australia.

She qualified for IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships for the past two years. Corinne also qualified for IRONMAN World Championships four times previously.

Corrine’s latest accolades include:

  • Lanzarote IRONMAN 2019: First place in age group and first place as non-professional female.
  • Wales Ironman 2018: First place in age group and first place as non-professional female. Qualified for Ironman World Championships
  • Ultra X Triathlon 2018: First place female.
  • Crooked Wiltshire Ultra 6 hours off Trail Race 2018: First place female.

Corinne, the owner of Corinne Clark Sports Massage in Cirencester, said: “I can’t thank Sara and redheadPR enough. Without sponsorship such as this, I wouldn’t be able to compete. I’m looking forward to this event and feeling confident about a podium position.”

Sara continued, “I’m very proud to know and sponsor Corinne. She is an inspiration to men, women and young people, including my own daughters. She proves that you can achieve anything when you work for it.”
