Between them they will be swimming the distance of the English Channel (21 miles), cycling the same distance as from London to Olympia in Greece (1,424) and walking the same distance as John O'Groats to Land's End (874).

The Maidstone-based law firm hopes to raise at least £10,000 through the TRYathlon for Macmillan, its chosen Charity of the Year. Managing partner John Sheath said: "Macmillan do a fantastic job providing practical, medical and financial support as well as pushing for improved specialist care for people affected by cancer.

"In 2011 alone they gave £234,000 in financial grants to people in Kent. We are really keen to support them in their valuable work. Every penny raised will go directly to Macmillan as the firm will be covering any costs associated with running the TRYathlon. It's going to be tough but I have no doubt that we will be able to achieve the target distances for each discipline."

Moira Mitchell, Kent fundraising manager for Macmillan, added: "We were delighted to hear that the staff at Brachers had voted Macmillan as their Charity of the Year and that the cornerstone of their fundraising effort will be the TRYathlon.

"In Olympic year it's a great idea to get their staff involved and working together. I wish them all the best." more information and to donate go to
