After months of training, teasing & toil, our two teams competed in the fantastic JLL Property Triathlon North on 28th July, Dez just about beat Rob Wallace in the swim after weeks of speculation over who would win! With Dan and Adam running against each other, and Alex competing with Ben in the cycle. What a brilliant event held at Media City UK raising an incredible £25,000 for JLL’s corporate charity Crisis and The Peel Group’s charity The Christie (Tim Bacon Foundation).
We entered two teams who did us proud, we may not have finished in the top three but we finished with great times. Our teams consisted of:
|Team 1||Team 2|
|Dez Walker||Rob Wallace||800m Swim|
|Alex Agar||Ben Roberts||18km Cycle|
|Adam Blasbery||Dan Edge||5km Run|
Media City UK hosted the triathlon for the third year in a row with an amazing turnout and atmosphere, despite the weather. The event took place from morning until late afternoon with a female, male and mixed group heats, for spectators you could enjoy a yummy cocktail from The Alchemist or a refreshing beer from Erdinger, and for athletes a relaxing massage. Huge well done to the event organisers, volunteers & athletes we cant wait for next year.
