Dorney Lake welcomes 2200 property professionals for the annual Jones Lang LaSalle Property Triathlon


London, 6th July 2011 - On Friday 8th of July over 2200 property professionals are descending upon Dorney Lake in Eton to take part in the fifth UK Property Triathlon. The event, co-sponsored by Property Week and previously known as the King Sturge Property Triathlon, is now a well-established event in the property calendar and has made its way into the top 5 UK triathlons by size.

Helen Jenkins, Britain’s top female triathlete ranked 5th in the world and sponsored by Jones Lang LaSalle, will be taking part in the event as part of her training for next year’s Olympics.

Richard Batten, Executive Chairman at Jones Lang LaSalle, comments that: “With competitor numbers higher than ever before and a healthy competition amongst those taking part, I anticipate a great day to be had by all. A healthy rivalry on the course will no doubt be evident, will a few scores hoping to be settled on the day!”

A full list of entrants can be found at www.propertytriathlon.com and our live webcam will be streaming directly to the Property Triathlon website on the day to allow those in the office and at home to watch competitors cross the finish line.

The event is being held in support of our two corporate charities – Macmillan and Help the Hospices. Results and photos from the day can also be found on www.propertytriathlon.com following the event.
