Creechurch Private Wealth has announced the entry of its hotly-tipped team in the first ever Isle of Man TT Triathlon on Sunday 30th June.
The team will be led by former Olympic cyclist and member of the Creechurch Sports Academy, Johnny Bellis, who will complete the cycle section of the event. Andy Isaac and Mark Clague will complete the swimming and marathon stages respectively.
This is the first long course endurance triathlon to take place on the Isle of Man. The event is intended to leverage the growing success and awareness of the island’s TT Races.
As triathlons continue to grow in popularity, the Isle-of-Man’s terrain will provide the ultimate test for competitors with a 2.4 mile swim in the Irish Sea, followed by a 112 mile cycle, before finishing with a full marathon.
John Greenwood, CEO at Creechurch Capital, said: “For many years, the island has built up the reputation and commercial success of the TT series to the point where it is now an internationally renowned event.
“As the Isle of Man seeks to capitalise on this further by expanding with complementary events, our business is keen to support this by putting our best foot forward and entering a stellar team to assist with the quality of the overall competition. I’m sure this fixture will become a calendar highlight in years to come and credit is due to the vision of the events team behind it. We certainly look forward to cheering our boys along on the day.”
Launched earlier this year, the Creechurch Sports Academy consists of a selection of handpicked, promising young sports stars who receive sponsorship to support them in meeting their goals. Creechurch Private Wealth is part of boutique discretionary fund manager, Creechurch Capital.
