Training for the Walk is essential.

Even if you are doing it over 7 days, it’s still a good idea to get in some training. 
Here are some tips to ensure you’re ready to take on your 35km or 42km.


Drink and carry plenty of water - hydration gels are also good.


Try not to wear new shoes. Instead wear some that have been walked in to avoid blisters.

Be Sunsafe

Please wear a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses and cover up as much as possible.


Don't forget to eat especially if you are doing long walks - pack plenty of snacks.

Stay Alert

Keep on footpaths/stay alert while crossing roads. Look out for oncoming traffic.

Stay Connected

Charge your phone so you can keep in touch with your friends and take pics!
