THIS AUGUST I’M WALKING 100KM FOR OXFAM
And I’m nervous, but honestly pretty pumped! Because if you follow Brown Paper you’ll now know that I simply love being active and in particular have taken an avid interest in getting more into the great outdoors with bushwalks in the past year or so. Thus, a 100km walk through the bush with a purpose that is raising money for OXFAM to help reduce poverty felt so right.
The walk commences Friday 25th August with our team “The Lounge Chair Heroes” aiming to finish within 30 hours (Saturday pm) – a steep challenge but a worthy one.
To date we’ve managed local walks which are worth the share because they really give you a chance to experience Sydney and the outskirts in ways I hadn’t really done so to date!
- Spit to Manly… and back which is an estimate 20km of easy natural terrain. More details right on over here.
- Paddington to Taronga… and back! Across our beautiful Harbour and onto the other side for a view back. Even if you take a small segment of this one from The Rocks over Sydney Harbour Bridge and through the back streets of Cremorne Point and Mosman it’s gorgeous views. Distance approximately 26km.
- Great North Walk… or at least a part of it. We commenced this 28km bushwalk at Brooklyn which sits on the Hawkesbury River and walked back to our cars in Berowra. For more details see here.
- Cooper Park Stairs…for weighted training and endurance. Had to sneak some stairs in there as I LOVE THEM! Read over my Top Stairs In Sydney to experience them for yourself!
- Bondi to Manly…and back! Which admittedly is not a bush walk but it is a long one and a true test to legs. We followed main roads for this.
If you can’t take part I would of course LOVE and be so grateful for any donation you might be able to offer and many people living in poverty will be no doubt so thankful for our support too. Head on over to the link below should you wish to donate. Thank you so much in advance!
