2017 JLL Property Triathlon North

Vertical Recruitment entered two teams in the 2017 JLL Property Triathlon North on Friday 28th July and both faired very well. The day started well for our teams, with the sun shining and the competitors leaving the office early to fuel themselves with some light brunch before heading to Media City for the big race.

After registering, the competitors donned their wetsuits, bike helmets and running shoes before warming up. Once the event got underway it was not only the swimmers who got wet, as the heavens opened just before the start time of 13:30 and the torrential rain continued all afternoon. Despite the weather, everyone from Vertical Recruitment had a great day, including the spectators who braved the conditions to cheer their colleagues on.

Team 1 was made up of Director James Adamson in the water, Managing Consultant Danny Craigie on the bike and Search Consultant Chris Stirling doing the run. They finished in a very respectable 1:18:27. However, it was Team 2, which consisted of Senior Consultant Adam Wheatland doing the swim and the run and Director James Smith cycling, who took the bragging rights in a time of 1:17:30.

After the event we visited Grand Pacific in Manchester for food and drink to celebrate a great Q2 of 2017 and to say goodbye to Office Administrator Amy Atherton who is moving on to pastures new. We thank Amy for all her efforts during her time with Vertical Recruitment and wish her all the best in her new role and for the future.
