Global Diagnostics sponsors the Blackwood Marathon
There was a magnificent turn out for this year’s 40th Blackwood Marathon, where Global Diagnostics was privileged to sponsor the South West relay’s final cycling leg.
The Blackwood Marathon is a relay race held annually on the last Saturday of October, teams comprising of 5 members, or iron-men, include a runner, a canoeist, a swimmer, an equestrian and a cyclist. More than 700 competitors (and many more spectators) began the day at the Boyup Brook Oval finishing at the Bridgetown Showgrounds. The sun continued to shine over the 57km course that incorporates some of the most beautiful countryside in the Blackwood Valley.
Well done to the 151 teams that participated! Congratulations to winning team Lemonis/Tantiprasut Lawyers and Tim Wiese (Iron Man) and Sarah Wiese (Iron Lady) for a tremendous effort!
