Property Triathlon goes north: JLL announces 2015 Triathlon dates and new events

3rd July and 24th July will see the property industry swimming, cycling and running in aid of charity


​JLL has announced that the 9th Property Triathlon and Property Swim at Eton Dorney will be held on 3rd July 2015, to be followed on the 24th July by the first Northern Triathlon in Manchester.


The JLL Property Triathlon, co-ordinated by Human Race, is now firmly established as one of the UK's top five largest triathlons and has raised £1.2 million to date for charity. Comprising a 750m swim, 20km cycle and a 5km run, you can race as an individual or gather a team of three to form a relay.


The Property Swim will be once again be a 2.2km swim along the Olympic rowing course, the full length of Dorney Lake, starting at the top end of the lake and finishing at the Boat House. This year a new Duathlon wave is being introduced, consisting of a 5km run followed by a 20km cycle and ending with a further 5km run.
2015 will be the inaugural year of the Northern Triathlon. The JLL Property Triathlon North is a jointly sponsored event between JLL and Peel Holdings will take place on Friday 24th July at Media City, Salford Quay. There  will also be a sprint distance event open to all levels of competitor.


Guy Grainger, UK Chief Executive of JLL commented: “The Triathlon gets more popular every year, with the proof being in yet another record breaking increase in entries and money raised for this year’s event. Having raised over £1 million for charity over the last 8 years, the triathlon is well on its way to heading to the £2 million mark, and this year’s introduction of the duathlon wave also offers those not so keen on the swimming element a chance to shine. 


 “The property industry is passionate about charity, health & fitness and the launch of the Northern Triathlon in Manchester this year will mean that more of our colleagues across the country will be able to participate and help to raise more vital funds for charity.”


Entries for all events including the Property Triathlon North will open on our websites on Tuesday 3rd February. Visit www.propertytriathlon.com  and www.propertyswim.com  then to register your place!
