Two of our veterinarians, Dr Jim Darmody and Dr Dave Warren participated in the 2014 Blackwood Marathon as part of a team, the “Great Southern Veteran Vets”.
Teams are required to run 12km, kayak 8.5km, swim 1km, horse ride 16km, and bike ride 20km. The team consisted of Jim (swim and bike), Dave (kayak), Dr Miles Nye-Chart from Mount Barker Vet Hospital (horse), and a last-minute replacement runner, Troy, from Bridgetown.
To their great surprise, the team finished second in the veteran category, completing the race in just under 3.5 hours. Congratulations to the team!
