Triathlon races to be hosted at Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Hotel on 12 October.


Jones Lang LaSalle, the world's leading real estate investment and advisory firm, is to partner with RACE ME Events, the multi-sports events specialists, by sponsoring its three inaugural triathlon races which will take place in the UAE's 2013/14 race season and will be collectively titled the "Jones Lang LaSalle Triathlon Series".

To be hosted at the Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Hotel on 12 October, 2013 registration has now opened for participants interested in competing in the first race of the series. There are two options: the super sprint (375m swim; 10 km bike; 2.5 km run); or the more challenging sprint distance (750m swim; 20 km bike; 5 km run), all of which will take place in the sea, on surrounding roads and in the Jebel Ali Golf Resort grounds. Options are available for competitors to enter either individually, as a team or part of a relay, opening out the opportunities for anyone who wants to take part in an exciting and dynamic competition.

Commenting on its involvement, Alan Robertson, CEO of Jones Lang LaSalle Middle East & North Africa said: "Being the title sponsor highlights our commitment to the community that we work within. As a socially responsible company we take an active interest in what goes on around us and how we can help be a part of what makes the UAE an exciting place in which to live, work and play. Sport always brings a wide breadth of people together and we hope that these races will become increasingly established in the Emirates' burgeoning sporting calendar. We like a challenge at JLL too, so will be putting a team together and I very much look forward to congratulating my colleagues as they cross the finish line!"

Race ME Events' Roy Nasr said: "We are delighted to have a company as prestigious as Jones Lang LaSalle as title sponsor of our new triathlon series at Jebel Ali. We intend to raise the bar when it comes to the quality of triathlon and other multi-sport races that are put on in Dubai, and hope they'll be a great addition for the UAE's sporting community.These races are not just for elite athletes - we encourage people who have never done triathlon before to give it a go, either as an individual or as part of a team (and we even have a special prize for the first 3 novices to cross the line). There is a reason that triathlon is one of the world's fastest growing sports - it's a real challenge but also great fun!"
