This week’s guest is Pat McMahon from Devonport and he who has been running for over 50 years. He has had a decorated athletic career winning several races in the carnivals. Pat has won at Stawell athletic carnival four times and is the second Tasmanian only to be inducted into the Stawell Hall of Fame. Pat had an amazing range winning races from 70m until the mile and would compete in the cross-country season in the winter. He has run 1:50/51 low for 800m and 49 seconds for 400m, for a day job he was a police sergeant in the Tasmanian Police force for over 40 years and was stationed all over the state. We talk about all these races as well as being part of the United Nations Peacekeeping in Cyprus, his job as a police officer, racing in the World Police Games in America and more.
If all this wasn’t enough, he has been awarded the Australian Police medal and is the current handicapper of the PCCCT running club. Pat has some amazing stories and life experience and I could personally listen to him all day. Pat still runs and loves it as much as he did when he first started.
