The course in brief

You will start at Teralba Park, Mitchelton and follow the walking path heading east through the Boondall Wetlands, and then north over the Hornibrook Bridge up and into Clontarf. Your walk will take you through a network of beautiful parks, bushland hidden among shady Eucalypts, wetlands teeming with birdlife and follow along cool, peaceful coastal paths. After you've completed your 42k marathon you will finish at Crockett Park, Woody Point.

Relay Walk & Team Walk Option

Entering the event as a relay team allows the 42km course to be broken down into smaller distances (3 legs) to be shared out amongst the relay team members. Combined together, the relay team will cover the full 42km course, but individual team members will only travel on their selected segment or segments, and then hand off to their next relay team member.

Fundraising target

Adult walkers must raise a minimum of $200 for fundraising (teens 12-18 raise $50) - all of which will go toward the Dalit children of India. GFA Aid Australia sends 100% of the funds you raise directly to India where it is used to fund the Bridge of Hope programs. None of the funds you raise are used to pay administration, salaries or rent for buildings.

By the way - you can raise as much money as you like! There is a prize for the highest fundraiser. You have until September 30, 2014 to deposit these funds.
