We were all really impressed by the number of families attending this years event and we wanted to make it easier for you to come again so we have added a ‘Sample Just Walk’ option of just 10 kms.

We also wanted to make it easier for those of you just a little bit daunted by the big 60km’s to be encouraged to go just a little bit further so we have a new 40km Just Walk on offer.

Check out all of the new routes- the gallery and sign up for next years event at the Just Walk site
