Preferred Mortgages sponsored this year's Sussex Triathlon on June 6. The triathlon is proving to be a local success story with up to 300 entrants this year who challenged themselves with a continuous 500 metre swim, 26 kilometre bike and a five kilometre run. Two employees from the Haywards Heath-based company took part in the gruelling challenge to raise much needed funds for two charities Cancer Research and Sense.
Dennis Pitocco, chief executive officer, says: “We are extremely pleased to have sponsored this event. It takes a determined person to enter into an event of this nature. I have respect for anyone who can put themselves through the paces of taking part in a triathlon and wish to congratulate all those who completed this event.
Urbanrace race director Dan James says: “The involvement of Preferred Mortgages proves the momentum behind triathlon as one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. With the support of Preferred we can continue to raise the quality of this local event and promote the benefits of triathlon as a healthy lifestyle sport.”
