Start process:

All 5km walkers will start together at the one start line, located on Western Beach Rd at the corner with Gheringhap St.

Although the 5km walk is not a race and is un timed, we encourage those who walk a bit faster than others to position yourself towards the front, and those slower walkers or with prams to be in the middle and back of the field

The start chute is best accessed from the northern side of Western Beach Rd.

Finish line: Eastern Beach Rd directly opposite Steampacket Gardens

NOTE: Pets, scooters, skates, skateboards or bikes are NOT permitted on the course.
