How the Event Works

The event works as follows:
  • walkers register their intent to take part and form teams of 2 or more people (there is no limit on the number of people in a team - but we prefer that all walkers on the day walk with at least 1 other person as a safety requirement);
  • all walkers pay a registration fee which pays for things like insurances, first aid, venues, food, printing, permits, etc. (view details on the different registration fees);
  • each walker agrees to the condition of entry that they raise a minimum of $200 for charity (which is all tax deductible, 100% of which goes to charity);
  • walkers can download a mapbook from the website here;
  • walkers congregate at the START location (see the mapbook for details);
  • all walkers depart together at 7am;
  • you're completing 4 looped sections of varying lengths to a combined distance of 50kms;
  • you can do all or part of the trail;
  • you will start and end from the same location for each trail section (see the map for more details);
  • each trail section is marked with arrows and signs by volunteers indicating the direction to head;
  • foodstuffs and fluid will be provided by the event organisers to keep you fueled up;
  • walkers can meet their friends/family members at the completion of each trail section;
  • walkers must complete the event by midnight;  
  • hopefully lots of donations are received online to reward walkers efforts.

Some folks take an event like this very seriously - others will rock up in bear suits. Whatever your approach we will happily accommodate you!

There's a bunch of rules (and the normal Terms and Conditions of entry) - but the overarching request from the Go the Extra Mile team is that you enjoy yourself while participating in the event!
