FREE Weekend Walks for Women – Belair for BEGINNERS 1 AUG 2020
1 August, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Our one and only FREE Weekend Walk in August is at Belair!
We walk for not just physical but also positive mental health outcomes. You can support our chosen charity MOSH (www.moshaustralia.org.au) by making a donation either at time of booking or with cash on the day thank you 🙂
Join our Wise Women Walking group for fun morning at Belair 🙂
THIS IS A BEGINNERS WALK and designed for those totally new to bushwalking and want to come and try.
Please arrive at 9.45am for a 10am start, at Belair Country Club carpark (turn off Upper Sturt Rd, into the entrance to the Caravan Park, approx. 100m south of the main park entrance).
Lisa will be your walk leader and will be here to meet you.
Our leaders carry group first aid kits, emergency communication devices and are experienced bushwalking leaders.
We will walk a couple of trails (Microcarpa and Lorikeet) through Belair for approximately 2 hours. There are toilets just near the start of our walk.
Due to the variability of the weather, the following items will be needed:- a daypack (25 -35 litre) backpack- 1-2 litres of water- sun protection (hat, sunnies, suncream) or wet weather gear (we will check the forecast and remind you all what to expect!)- blister kit/personal medication- high energy snacks/fruit- boots/comfortable walking shoes (sneakers are fine if you dont have boots)- warm clothing for before/after the walk (jumper/jacket)- walking poles (optional)
Please ensure you have the minimum gear required as no refunds are possible after booking. If you arrive underprepared without wet weather clothing or the gear listed above, our Leaders have the right to ask you not to walk with us for safety reasons if you do not have the weather appropriate gear with you.
Our walks are all about fun, fitness and friendship – not a personal training session. If we can’t walk and talk at the same time we are walking too fast! And we never leave anyone behind.
Spots are limited so please register on Eventbrite to secure your place.
Note while this is a FREE walking event, a $10 deposit is required to secure your spot – this is refunded to you when you attend or you can choose to donate this to MOSH. The deposit is not refundable if you cancel or do not show up for this event.
If the weather forecast is for extreme weather or a fire ban is issue for the Adelaide Hills, this walk will be cancelled the day before and fully refunded.
If you have any questions, you can call Lisa Murphy with any questions on 0418 802 361.
