Do I need credentials?
Yes. While we never anticipate turning away any media on race weekend, it always helps us to have an accurate head count of media attendees. It is mutually beneficial for you to plan ahead and let us know you are coming as well as its great for us to be able to make sure we can accommodate all of your interview requests. This will also allow us to make sure our media tent is accurately stocked with necessary equipment to make your visit a positive experience.
How do I get credentials and when do I pick them up?
Please email our public relations team at firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know the name of your entire party, what publication you work for as well as any special requests you may have on race weekend. You can pick up your credentials at the information tent on race week.
Do you have a media tent?
Yes, we have a media tent at the finish area, located between the Henderson Multigenerational Center and the Henderson Pavilion on the corner of Green Valley Pkwy and Paseo Verde Pkwy.. It will be a large white tent labeled "media." You can ask any Lowery's Multisport/ITU staff member where the media tent is at the finish line and they will be able to direct you in the right area. In the media tent you will find wireless access, outlets, international adaptors, paper, writing utensils, refreshments and most importantly a quiet place where you can write or make phone calls.
Do you have a media boat?
No. The nature of the course does not allow us to safely put members of the media on a boat. There are many vantage points along the swim course that will allow for great athlete shots, please contact our media team at email@example.com with questions or concerns.
Will I be able to get an interview with the race director on race day?
Sometimes. Again, we strive to accommodate all media requests BUT as you can imagine the race director and organizers are extremely busy on race day. While there may be a few minutes throughout the day where you can catch a quick interview with the race director and athletes, we HIGHLY recommend you contact our public relations team and schedule all interviews before race day.
Will you have wireless access at the race? What about live streaming?
Yes, we have wireless access on and around the finish line, located between the Henderson Multigenerational Center and the Henderson Pavilion on the corner of Green Valley Pkwy and Paseo Verde Pkwy.. You can get wireless access information on race weekend from our Public Relations team.
Where can I get results on race day?
You can find results posted in two places. Results will be updated approximately every half hour on the Web site, you can access this at www.lowerymultisport.com OR if you will physically be at the finish line we will post results periodically on a large black bulletin board in the "bullseye." You can ask any Lowery's Multisport/ITU personnel where to find this on race day.
Will you have a press conference on race weekend?
No. We do not currently schedule press conferences on or around race weekend. We strive to give our media very personal service, we feel press conferences are cold and impersonal. We are happy to set up one on one interviews with athletes and race officials per your request, prior to race day.
I still have questions, who should I contact?
Please feel free to contact our public relations and media team at any time. You can reach them via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
