A Fine Day Out at Dorney Lake

Friday, 30th June - JLL Property Triathlon 2017
After months of training the big day was finally upon us. It was time for the triathletes amongst us to step up to the plate and do the firm proud. With serious bragging rights at stake this year the firm entered three teams in the Mixed Relay class. In this class we were up against another 271 teams and, in total, 1423 teams and individuals entered the event in one class, age group or another. 
It was a truly memorable day and there is already plenty of banter around the office about participating again next year. Special mention to Michael who smashed his previous best and to Josh who was only 20 or so seconds outside his.

So you will see that our results in 2017 compare extremely favourably to 2016, by just over 5 minutes in fact in the case of Team A: 

  • Team A finished 6th of 272 in the class and 34th out of total 1423
  • Team B finished 56th / 272 and 337 / 1423
  • Team C finished 193rd / 272 and 940 / 1423
Well done everybody!
