Time running out to sign up for popular Challenge Walk

The annual Campbelltown City Challenge Walk takes place in less than two weeks on Sunday, March 10.

Participants have until March 6 to register online at the discount rate for the popular not-for-profit community event at the Australian Botanic Garden, Mt Annan.

Late entries will also be open on the day.

About 1,400 people are expected to take the challenge, which has been held for more than 20 years as part of Campbelltown Council’s healthy lifestyles initiatives.

“This is a great annual event, that promotes living a healthier lifestyle and has the support of organisations and businesses in the community who donate their time and expertise to help make it the success that it is,” says Campbelltown mayor George Brticevic.

“It’s designed for literally everyone in the community to be able to take part and reflects the inclusive attitude the residents of Campbelltown have,’’ Cr Brticevic said.

Challenge Walk here we come: Mayor George Brticevic with Jazmine Thomas, 23, from co-sponsor Macarthur Square and Narellan Athlete’s Foot, and Campbelltown Joggers’ Club member Tom Limbrey, 45, at the Mount Annan Australian Botanic Garden.

Suitable for people of all ages and abilities, residents can register as an individual or team and people with a disability are encouraged to join in, with a 6km or 11km circuit to choose from.

The walk is held in age categories as well as the four team categories of primary school, secondary school, corporate organisation, open (community group, association or club) and fitness (such as a gym or bootcamp) over the 6km and 11km distances. Stroller/pram walkers are welcome to participate over either distance.

The pre-event entry fee is $11.40 and people can register in-person at council’s customer service counter at 91 Queen St, Campbelltown, until 4.30pm, this Friday, March 1, or through council’s website until Wednesday 6 March.

The cost to register on the day of the event is $22.80.

For the first time, all entrants will receive a medal for participating, and everyone will be automatically entered into a barrel draw of prizes for taking part.
