King of the Mountain 2013

posted 24 Jun 2013, 04:21 by Race Walking SA - SARWC
This week we have our annual “King of the Mountain”, which involves distances of (around) 2.5 km, 3.5 km, 5.1 km and the “monster” the 10.2 km (being 5.1 twice) for the title of King of the Mountain. The walks mostly take place on sealed roads through the Belair National park, so it’s important to keep to the right and watch for traffic.
The walks of 2.5 km and 3.5 km cover some up and down sections, which provides some hill work for the junior walkers. The 5.1 km course takes in a really nasty hill, so only for the experienced or game.

 See the map for details.

 We will be meeting at the Joseph Fisher shelter and BBQ will be available for purchase with soft drinks. Cars will be able to take walkers to the start.

 Entry fee for cars is $12, and we will arrange for some cars to be inside to transport you to the BBQ are and back at the end. Take the mobile numbers of the committee (Peter Walsh and Peter Crump) so you can arrange for pick ups. You can then park just outside the gates.

 A good fun day in the country, but bring your winter gear as it does get cold.
