Inaugural Iron Law Triathlon challenge underway
The inaugural Iron Law Triathlon challenge 2019 is underway.
Two teams of solicitors from Northern and Southern Ireland are undertaking the most exhaustive physical challenges in support of their colleagues.
The 6 solicitors are participating in the inaugural Iron Law Triathlon challenge which will encompass three provinces, six counties and at least six border crossings over the course of one day.
The team representing the Law Society of Northern Ireland will include solicitors, Peter Jack from RG Connell & Son in Limavady, Darren Toombs from Carson McDowell in Belfast and Adam Wood from Campbell & Haughey Solicitors Ltd in Lurgan.
As part of the race, Peter will swim Lough Melvin, Darren will cycle from Garrison, Fermanagh to Maynooth and Adam will complete the challenge by running from Maynooth to Blackhall Place via Phoenix Park.
They will be competing against the team representing the Law Society of Ireland.
All proceeds from the competition will go towards supporting the work of the Solicitors’ Benevolent Association (SBA) which helps solicitors and their families who are experiencing difficult times.
Commenting the President of the Law Society of Northern Ireland, Suzanne Rice said;
“We are delighted to support Darren, Adam and Peter and we wish them the very best as they seek to undertake this challenge in support of the Solicitors’ Benevolent Association (SBA). I wish to encourage as many as possible to support our team, make a donation and cheer the boys on to bring home the trophy”.
