Olympic medallists Alistair and Jonny Brownlee delighted at Macmillan involvement
Professional Sports Group is delighted to announce Macmillan Cancer Support as the Title Partner of the 2014 Brownlee Tri series. Launched in partnership with Olympic Gold and Bronze medallists Alistair and Jonny Brownlee last year, the Brownlee Tri has expanded to two events in 2014 and will now be known as the Macmillan Brownlee Tri. As part of the agreement, Macmillan will have over 300 competitors raising money to help ensure that no-one has to face cancer alone. Alistair and Jonny Brownlee are set to make an appearance at both events.
The first Macmillan Brownlee Tri will take place at the iconic National Trust property of Petworth House and Park in West Sussex on 15th June, with the second held in the brothers’ home county of Yorkshire at Harewood House on 21st September. Both events will host sprint and super-sprint competitions for individuals, with prizes for youth and adult categories, and also a sprint relay. Whether you are a seasoned triathlete or taking on your first ever race, there really will be something for everyone.
Alistair and Jonny Brownlee said: “We’re delighted that such a fantastic charity has chosen to partner with the Brownlee Tri. Triathlon is a great way to get active and competing for Macmillan Cancer Support provides the perfect motivation. Petworth House and Harewood House are two brilliant locations for a triathlon and we hope as many people as possible will join us.”
