Top tech leaders brave triathlon to raise money for Sports Relief

Global technology leaders are coming together to do their bit for charity by taking part in a Sports Relief triathlon in the grounds of Blenheim Palace on 9 and 10 June.

Cisco CEO of UK and Ireland, Paul Smith, is leading the tech charge to get people involved and has managed to enrol team members from companies that include IBM, Oracle, RIM, Orange and VMware.

It is hoped that each member of the team, which is 30 strong, will raise between £10,000 and £25,000.

The sporty execs will also be joined by ex-British Lion Austin Healey and 400 metre ex-Olympian Roger Black, as well as receive training tips from Paula Radcliffe.

In a bid to prepare them for the challenging event, the execs will also be taking part in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday 25 March.
