A Northumberland man will be testing his fitness at a new sporting event.
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 whilst also raising money for a charity.
Its team includes Mick Davis from Ellington – the other three members are Michael Kealy, Kieran Embleton and Ryan Clark.
The event involves a 750m swim, 20km bike ride and 5km run around the Newcastle and Gateshead quaysides.
The companies with teams already signed up include IHC Engineering Business, Alnorthumbria Veterinary Group, Quorum Business Park, Costain and HMS Calliope and the winners will receive the ‘Top Team Trophy’.
They will compete alongside hundreds of individual competitors.
The Newcastle Triathlon takes place on Saturday, July 19. The money raised will be given to The Chronicle Sunshine Fund.
