Sri-Chimnoy multi-sport challenge, Jindabyne, March 2015
ANUMC were ably represented by a team of six avid adventurers. Tim Crockford, James Painting, Laure Gauthiez Putallaz, Pierre-Dominique Putallaz, Marco Ernst and Kristen Walker swam, paddled, ran and mountain-biked their way through the 12 legs to complete this endurance challenge. The team worked together throughout the day to race against the cut-off time and finish in 12:18:48. The whole team pulled together to ensure smooth transitions between the legs and to provide invaluable moral support. In the end we gained a sense of achievement and team spirit.
Keep an eye on the trip calendar for next year’s Multi-Sport challenge!
