Event Options

Most folks will enjoy the challenge of tackling the 50kms as a test of their fitness and ability. For others however, walking the full 50kms can be a daunting prospect, and still others would like to make the event a family experience and include their children - toddlers to teenagers.

Fees and Funds Review the registration fees and fundraising pledge targets applicable to you.

Due to popular demand, we have introduced new variations of the 50km walk so that the walk options are now as follows:

Select Your Walk - 7.5km | 15km | 24km | 38km | 50km

Many walkers will aim to complete the full 50km course but we have geared our walk so that you can select the distance you think appropriate to your fitness levels and ability. When registering just select which distance you'll be aiming for - if you change your mind on the day - no problem! Simply keep going and when you've had enough let us know and we'll book you out of the event then. Note: the cost is the same for all walkers regardless of the distance walk.

Family Walk

Families are very welcome to join in the walk (espcially the Grandparents and Grandkids). The first 2 sections of the walk are mostly on shared, sealed footpaths through parklands and are generally "pram friendly" (one small section near Burwood Highway is a gravel path). In the first section of the walk, a special "Family Only Pitstop" will be available at the 7.5km mark (at Wantirna Oval). This will allow little feet to rest for the final push to Pitstop 1 (if that is your finishing Pitstop).

Families are welcome to do the entired 50km course together, or alternatively, those who have had enough can split off and become the support crew for those who wish to push on - it's your choice. Generally, however, most families chose to target either Pitstop 1 or 2 as their finishing destination.

Relay Walk

If the thought of walking the full 50kms seems too daunting, then why not assemble a relay team? That way you can walk as little or as much as you feel comfortable with. Relay teams have a maximum of 4 people in them - and each person walking a section of the event must be accompanied by at least one other person (for safety reasons). In other words, a team must be made up of at least 2 or more members, while 1 of the team 'members' may be a relay team (of up to 4 people). For more details on the Relay walk click here.
