Around 250 property professionals took part in our client Colliers International’s 2019 TRYathlon - and the Empica team was on hand to capture all the action.
The event saw competitors take on a 400m swim, 16km cycle and 5km run, either as individuals or teams of three, at Tockington Manor School in South Gloucestershire.
An amazing £4,500 was raised for the Malcolm Gunter Foundation, set up in memory of a prominent Bristol property professional who was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2017 and died the following year. The charity (www.malcfoundation.co.uk) was set up to support Malcolm’s family and others in their situation, and to fund further research into the disease.
Empica videographer George Watts filmed the TRYathlon and has created this 1.5 minute video record of the day.
Meanwhile client director Neil Fraser wrote social media content, blogs and press releases before and after the event and our photographer Neil Phillips captured images on the day.
And although the emphasis at this year’s TRYathlon was on families and first-time entrants, there had to be a winner. The fastest male under 40 and overall winner was Oliver Kolodseike, in a time of just 50 minutes and 28 seconds, while the fastest female under 40 was Jo Crofts, who finished in 1 hour, 3 minutes and 53 seconds.
Tim Davies, head of Colliers International in the South West and Wales, said: “Our TRYathlon has got bigger and bigger every year, and once again the event was sold out.
“We were particularly delighted to have attracted more children and families this year and everybody involved dug deep to complete the challenge and help raise money for a fantastic cause.”
