CEO Challenges, a company that stages competitions for C-level executives, announced that the title of the “world’s fittest CEO” will decided at the USA Triathlon Age Group National Championship in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Aug. 22.
“In previous years we have awarded the title of World’s Fittest CEO® at the Hawaii Ironman World Championship,” said Ted Kennedy, president of CEO Challenges. “However, many very fit, very fast CEOs find it impossible to fit a full Ironman into their work, travel, and family schedules. As a result, we are pleased to offer the opportunity for the best CEO triathletes in the World to join us in August and compete to see who is the best, and therefore, fittest of all.”
Competitors for the CEO Challenge Worlds must win their age group at a previous CEO Triathlon Challenge event or finish an Olympic distance triathlon in under 2:30 to be invited to take part.
If triathlon is not your thing, CEO Challenges also has a pure cycling event. The second annual CEO Cycling Challenge will take place Nov. 5-8, 2009. The event features the opportunity to ride with George Hincapie.
