The Australian Professional Race Directors Association have negotiated the deal with Triathlon Australia for the 2015/16 season.
Officials and board members from Triathlon Australia met with key members of the APTRDA to discuss a range of issues and policy affecting race directors last week.
"As we said back in December with the formation of APTRDA we look forward, as a highly professional group with collectively many many years of experience in presenting events of the highest quality, to working closely with all Race Directors throughout Australia and also the National Governing Body - Triathlon Australia - for better communication and negotiation at all levels for the betterment of the sport" said APTRDA's Ken Baggs said.
