On the last weekend in October, the Blackwood Marathon was run in Bridgetown.
This year, Dave Warren and Dave Marshall were team members of the ‘Great Southern Veteran Vets’ team, with Dave W kayaking and Dave M cycling, along with Troy (running), Malcolm (swimming) and Miles (horseriding).
Unfortunately their young team horse became much too excited by the event, and couldn’t settle his heart rate to below the required limit in time for the vetcheck, so the team was disqualified.
We are sure they’ll return bigger and better for next year’s event! Congratulations to the whole team and especially Dave and Dave.
