Skipton Triathlon is backed by local businesses
Two top local businesses have signed up to sponsor Skipton Triathlon, the hugely popular event in Aireville Park which will take place on April 9th, 2017.
The Pentelow Practice and Myers Building Supplies have both jumped on board for this exciting event which has already attracted over 600 competitors.
Emma Pentelow, Managing Partner of the Pentelow Practice, a founding and Principal Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management, is delighted to be supporting the triathlon.
Operating from Skipton and Leeds, The Pentelow Practice provides financial solutions to private and corporate clients including workplace pensions, retirement, investment planning, care fees, inheritance tax mitigation and everything in between.
Emma, who operates out of the Broughton Hall Business Park, helps a broad range of individuals to achieve a sustainable and prosperous financial future, with a particular emphasis on business owners and planning for those in later life.
"Keeping in shape is key to enjoying wealth and we are delighted to be involved with an exciting local sporting initiative which encourages hundreds of athletes to give it a go," said Emma.
"We will be fielding a number of competitors so watch out for us! Good luck to everyone and we'll see you on the day."
Myers Building Supplies is part of the Myers Group, a family owned business established in Huddersfield in 1929 trading in the supply of building materials, ready mixed concrete and natural stone production.
The Company's portfolio has expanded significantly over the decades and now includes Readymix Huddersfield, Johnsons Wellfield, Myers Building Supplies and Myers Skip Hire. Now in its fourth generation, the business employs approximately 350 people throughout the Yorkshire region.
Myers Building Supplies currently operates 14 branches throughout Yorkshire, the first of which was established in 1973 in Huddersfield as Naylor Myers. As well as supplying a vast range of construction and building materials, the local branch site at Skipton is also home to sister company Readymix Huddersfield, making the branch a convenient one stop shop for building materials and ready mixed concrete.
This traditionally run family business is committed to supporting local communities in the vicinity of its branch network and where its team members and colleagues live and work and so is delighted to be sponsoring the forthcoming Skipton Triathlon.
Sarah Wallbank, Branch Manager at Myers Building Supplies Skipton branch, said: "We are really looking forward to being involved in this event and we're even contemplating entering a team. It is important for us to support our local community and we are delighted to be partnering with Craven Council to support this triathlon event."
Skipton Triathlon is a sprint distance event, ideal for beginners and experts alike. The event features a 400m swim in the Craven Leisure pool, a 22km bike ride and a 5km run through Aireville Park. Individuals and teams can enter the event.
Sharon Hudson, Communications and Partnerships Manager at Craven District Council, said: "We're thrilled that Myers Building Supplies and The Pentelow Practice have chosen to sponsor this exciting event. We've had an incredible number of people signing up to take part already and many of them will be undertaking a triathlon for the first time. It should be a fantastic event - if you want to join in, make sure you get a place before it's too late!"
