A team of legal experts are challenging fellow professionals to test their fitness as part of Newcastle's very first triathlon.
Winn Solicitors is sponsoring Newcastle Triathlon’s Corporate Wave which will see teams of four or more compete for the prestigious ‘top corporate team’ position. The event in July will also raise money for The Chronicle’s Sunshine Fund.
The Winn Solicitors Corporate Challenge, part of the main Newcastle Triathlon event, includes a 750m swim, 20km bike and 5km run around the Newcastle and Gateshead quaysides. The event is specifically for businesses, with one corporate team awarded the coveted Top Team Trophy.
Managing director at Winn Solicitors Jeff Winn says their team is all set for the race and will be aiming for pole position at this year’s inaugural event. He said: “Our team is ready and raring to go. We have no doubt that the triathlon will be testing and competitive, but it’s an excellent team-building exercise, a great way of raising funds for a fantastic charity and a great event for Newcastle and Gateshead.
“Our staff are always keen to raise money for this worthwhile cause.”
Corporate teams already signed up include IHC Engineering Business, Alnorthumbria Vetinary Group, Quorum Business Park, Costain and HMS Calliope, who all compete alongside the hundreds of individual competitors already entered.
The Chronicle Sunshine Fund supports disabled children in the North East.
The Newcastle Triathlon takes place on Saturday July 19 2014 on Newcastle and Gateshead’s Quaysides. Visit www.thenewcastletriathlon.co.uk/Race/CorporateChallengeInfo or email info@TheNewcastleTriathlon.co.uk
