Nokian Tyres IRONMAN 70.3 Finland – thank you for a great event

Roschier's journey towards the first ever Nokian Tyres IRONMAN 70.3 Finland started one year ago when we announced the cooperation agreement with Finntriathlon with regard to the triathlon race.

At the end of last year, we introduced #passionforperformance with the aim of encouraging both active and aspiring athletes, as well as those interested in wellbeing in general, to attend our events and activities. During the winter and spring, we arranged monthly training sessions with our clients, internal sporting activities and other events like coffee tasting, the Roschier Spring Event for Families for clients and Roschier people, and Nokian Tyres IRONMAN 70.3 Finland – event partners’ afternoon.

The high point of the cooperation, the race itself, took place last Saturday. We had an amazing participation rate: six individual competitors, eight relay teams consisting of clients and Roschier people, and three student teams. It surely was a day we will remember for a long time. Here is a link to a video of our day in Lahti.

Tero Jormanainen, Roschier Partner and a long term triathlete and the spark behind Roschier’s cooperation with IRONMAN, participated in the individual race and finished exhausted but happy: “I have never felt this tired after a triathlon race before, but at the same time I feel immensely proud of everybody who joined Team Roschier for the race. It is a challenge for your body and mind alike, regardless of whether you are doing the individual race or the team relay. What I like most about the triathlon is having a clear goal to keep you moving all year around. There are very few other sports that provide such versatile training opportunities to keep you fit. I am particularly pleased of the buzz around the corridors of the office already targeting next year’s race. I’m in!”

We would like to thank all of you who attended our monthly training sessions and the race with us. We hope you had as much fun as we did.
