Melbourne Coastrek 30km

My Activity Tracking


My target 0kms

This is my year for Coastrek!

2019 is the year!  I've seen my friends do Coastek in previous years and have always thought it would be a wonderful thing to do.  I've gathered together a group of wonderful ladies and we will have a great time trekking along the Mornington Peninsula coast (I think).


2019 is also the year that I plan to get super fit   . . .  ha ha, pretty sure I've had that plan in previous years, but I've just bought some new shoes and a hydration backpack, so that should help right?  I mean, that's basically all I need to do.  Oh hang on - there's the training and the fitness, . . .  and the 30km hike!!  I'd best get cracking!


Not only is this a great incentive for me, with the team aspect providing me some much needed accountability, but it is also a great way to raise funds for such an awesome cause.  All funds raised go The Fred Hollows Foundation.  

I'd be so incredibly appreciative if you could please sponsor my trek and give the gift of sight to the needlessly blind.

Wish me luck!

Let the training begin

I've got my first 10km training session complete . . . a few more of these and I should be on the right track.  Maybe I'll need to get some hill climbs in as well . . . I suspect the course might just have a few of those waiting for me.

Thank you to my Sponsors
