Another superhuman effort by W&D Staff!

18 March 2015

As you know our W&D staff have a habit of being active and loving a challenge. Well here is another amazing achievement that the W&D Team can add to their list.

Whilst most people were snuggled up in bed on one very chilly (windy and rainy) November morning last year, W&D Operations Manager Kara Jones was braving the elements at Lake Wendouree in Ballarat to compete in her first half ironman alongside team members Leigh Hutchison and Graham Pyers from Doepel Lilley and Taylor.

This event sees competitors complete a 1.9km swim, 90km bike ride and 21.1km run.

The W&D Finance team finished an impressive 20th in the teams division with Leigh putting in a fantastic swim effort of 35.41. Graham took on the bike leg and finished with an equally impressive time of 2:48:30, whilst Kara tackled the final run leg and completed the 21.1kms in a sensational time of 1:46:12. The official time for Team W&D was 5:13:01.

Doepel Lilley & Taylor also had a team in the event, headed by Abby Sherwell completing the swim leg in 54:21, with husband Shannon completing the ride in 3:22:35 and Kara’s sister Stacey coming in after the run at 1:46:36. Their overall time was 6:05:43.

A super human effort by all concerned. Congratulations!
