Staff at Marlow Vets in Chepstow, Monmouthshire took part in a sponsored run to help raise awareness of toxic shock syndrome (TSS).
The staff completed a 5km run at Tintern railway station in the Wye Valley.
Boss Glenn Marlow surprised himself by running the distance and coming in hard on the heels of the practice’s youngest assistant vet.
The team also held a coffee morning later in the week.
The symptoms of TSS include a sudden fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, a skin rash, muscle aches, dizziness and confusion.
