King Sturge joint senior partner Chris Ireland and Property Week editor Giles Barrie have teamed up to launch the first property industry triathlon

They were joined for last Friday's official launch at event organiser King Sturge's Warwick Street offices in London's West End by GB triathletes Will Clarke and Helen Tucker.

The `Sprint Triathlon' event, with a 750m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run, will be held at Eton's Dorney Lake on Friday June 29. Already more than 400 people have registered an interest in taking part.

All proceeds will go to Cancer Research and The Children's Trust. Ireland, his joint senior partner Richard Batten and Barrie will all be taking part, and the triathlon is open to property industry all-comers.
