It’s time to get inspired and plan your own local walk, run or roll for any time on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 March – of course remembering to avoid peak times and make choices that support public health.
Below are the spots we think might be good for working up a sweat and your km’s for you virtual tally.
If you are aiming to achieve the finisher badge, then make sure your fitness device records the distance that you registered for. Note that your data may take 24 hours to be logged against your fundraising page.
Best part – you can break up your active sessions across the coming days up to and including this weekend (March 28-29). All your distances will count towards your registered distance regardless if they are done all at once or in smaller sessions.
R.G. Menzies Walk, Lake Burley Griffin
Walk the 5km from Commonwealth Bridge to the Kings Avenue Bridge (return) and take in the sights en route including the National Carillon, National Library, Captain Cook Fountain and more. The wide path encourages all modes of movement.
Lake Ginninderra Circuit (7.2km loop), Belconnen
True to our mission, to recognise our wonderful MS Community and celebrate the diversity of our participants, this loop is also access friendly for the rollers amongst us. Plenty of birdlife and even a park or three if you have your family with you!
Lake Tuggeranong Circuit, Greenway
20minutes south of the city is this 7.6km circuit which is suitable for all abilities and modes. You could clock 2 laps to reach the 14.4km target or undertake an out and back approach to reach the 5km or 10km distances.
Conder-Gordon walk, Southern Canberra
Start/finish: Norman Lindsay Street, Conder
Located in an expansive valley this walk can be 5.5km in total or the shorter 3.5km loop by cutting out the lap of Point Hut Pond. Mostly paved, flat and great for even the 4-legged members of your family (on or off lead).
Curtin Walk, Curtin
Start/finish: Curtin shops, Strangways Street, Curtin
This loop is 4km is total and is sealed pathways (crossing 1 road). It is walk, run + roll friendly and follows parts of the Yarralumla Creek. Great for furry family members of the 4-legged variety also.
Share your course on social media using #MSWalkRunRoll – or even better share a happy snap of you (or your doggo) out and about this weekend!
