Past Meetup

Walking Marathon - 42.2km

This Meetup is past


Have you ever wanted to test yourself to see if you can complete a marathon? Well here is your chance. This is a walk especially designed for our Canberra Walking Festival volunteers so they can also enjoy the walk. Plus it gives us a final opportunity to test out the route and make sure that no changes are needed. That said, any other walkers are more than welcome to come along too - the more the merrier.

On Saturday we'll be walking approx 11km before joining up with the Lake the Loop route, and we may even catch up with the rest of the walkers doing that walk...
On Sunday we'll be walking the 20 and 30km routes (listed separately on Meetup).

We'll meet on Blackall St - near the corner of Kings Ave - there is plenty of on street parking outside the AFP building.

This walk will take quite a while to complete, so you should bring along a packed lunch and snacks to eat along the way.

Of course, we'd love you to come along to our main event too (5-7 April), but if you can't make that, then you could still enter and complete the walk with the volunteers.

Cost for this walk is a $2 donation to the Heart Foundation. Volunteers and others completing the Canberra Walking Festival event in advance will need to complete an official entry form and pay the entry fee - see link below or there will be entry forms available on the day.

Lastly, I would appreciate if any walkers register as a Heart Foundation Walker: - for public liability coverage - if you are not a Heart Foundation Walker, I will need you to sign a release form on the day of the walk.
