Richard Murray and Rachel Klamer, two of Havoline’s celebrity brand ambassadors, have been in the UK competing in races, and hosting business appearances over the last week.
Starting in Nottingham, the duo entered the Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay, before heading north to Leeds, where Richard secured first place in the AJ Bell World Triathlon. Determined to maintain stamina, Richard and Rachel arrived next in London, where they hosted a training session for the Chevron workforce.
The Triathletes travel the world competing in the ITU World Triathlon Series, with Nottingham, the first UK destination of the 2018 race series, and host city of the inaugural Triathlon Mixed Team Relay. The first in a three race series, the relay was a chance for the Havoline ambassadors to represent their home countries; Richard, South Africa; and Rachel, The Netherlands. The race comprised a two female, two male team, and the course was made up of a 300m swim, 6.6km cycle and 1km run. Each athlete had to complete the ‘mini’ Triathlon before tagging off to a teammate. The Triathlon Mixed Relay will debut as an official sport in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
