Sydney Coastrek incorporates teams of four with a choice of three events, a 50km Day (Palm Beach to Balmoral), 50km Night (Balmoral to Coogee) or the Hard Core 100km (Palm Beach to Coogee). The event now in its 5th year, has raised over $4 million for The Fred Hollows Foundation since its inception, and provides the perfect opportunity for women to get fit with their friends by walking and talking along the stunning Sydney coast.
All you have to do is organise a team of four friends and get walking!!! the endorphins will follow and before you know it you will have increased your fitness and shared lots of laughs with those friends you never had time to see! Sydney Coastrek is motivational in that it presents a physical challenge but most trekkers are blown away by the mental health benefits of just getting out into nature, spending time with friends and supporting each other as a team.
Women 35yrs -55ys LOVE this event and make up 90% of trekkers, they see it as a great way to get fit with their friends, while walking in spectacular locations and enjoying a cappuccino along the way! Last year blind trekker Ben Phillips, Julie McCrossin, Tanya Plibersek and Miranda Devine joined in the fun and this year Susie O'Neill has put together a team of mums from her children's primary school and they will be joining us on February 28th 2014!.
Trekkers can register at www.coastrek.com - be quick as registrations are filling fast and will close soon!. We believe trekking along the coast is all about vision and Sydney Coastrek fully supports the Fred Hollows Foundation's goal of ending avoidable blindness. We are also passionate about women and we will do everything possible to support our trekkers to ensure they achieve their goals of fitness and fundraising. All trekkers will be provided with training guides, sessions and a training weekend to assist them with preparing for the adventure.
So please join us in the Sydney Coastrek adventure challenge, get fit, have fun and raise money for The Fred Hollows Foundation.
