The club has organised 3 walks during October and November subject to the weather with the first one at Settlers Common in Armadale. The walk will take around 2 to 3 hours to complete and is approximately 9km long with several steep up hill sections that will be quite demanding breathing wise and similar in effort to swimming a 400m or 800m aerobic swim. There will be no rush and we will regroup at the halfway point up the longer hills and also at the top of each hill. Knowing you all I think we are all capable aerobically but you will need a good set of healthy legs and feet to make the distance (Come and discuss with me if you not sure).
What to Bring:
A good pair of walking boots or joggers that you are comfortable with, 3 bottles of water, hat, sunscreen, long pants, chocolate or muesli bar to snack on, money for lunch, your medications, clean shirt for lunch, possibly your partner and a small backpack to carry your water and things in.
We will met up at 9am at the Settlers Restaurant car park which is on the South West Highway on the corner of Albany Highway for a 9:15 firm start and return there around mid day for some well deserved refreshments, lunch and a chinwag.
I have tracked and logged the walk which can be found on MyEveryTrail account. Just click on this link to take you there. As the Google map loads up you will see a blue dot move along the track so you know what direction we will be walking, you can also press play at the bottom of the page if you miss it when it’s loading up. There are also options to see the map in different formats by clicking on Terrain, Hybrid Satellite or Map on the top right hand corner of the map.
Please let me know if you’re coming so I have some idea of numbers. Hope to see you there.
