Navy Veteran Dives Deep for Bravery Trek

We thought 4 marathons in 44 days was a huge challenge – but how about 4 marathons in less than 44 hours!!! Wowee!!

Navy veteran Peter Scott has taken our Bravery Trek to a whole new level, running 173.5km around the famous French Alps.

Getting an early jump on this year’s Trek, Peter completed the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc event in France, finishing his 4 marathons in under 43 hours whilst also clocking up more than an Everest in elevation; amassing 10,015m of climbing.  Post-race Peter said it was the toughest race he has ever done “by a long shot.”

The Dacia UTMB Mont-Blanc has grown to be the world’s leading trail event and is the inspiration behind the creation of the UTMB World Series circuit, based on the same founding principles: surpassing one’s limits, fair play, respect for people and the environment and solidarity.

Peter is a retired RAN Commodore, submariner, author & executive coach.

It is Peter’s second time joining Bravery Trek to support veterans who are doing it tough financially, often through no fault of their own.

He said: “It’s important we do what we can to lend them a hand given their commitment to service. It’s equally important we make accessing that support as easy as possible.”

Earlier this year Peter published his first memoir ‘Running Deep: An Australian Submarine Life’. In it, Peter reflects on his own personal challenges whilst serving over 30 years in the Submarine Arm of the Royal Australian Navy.
