This Saturday we are meeting at Binnaburra kiosk at 7am for either a walk or a run. The run is approx 19km and the walks vary from 2km – 10km. There will be something for everyone so bring your family and friends for a great Easter Saturday. Please be aware that occasionally there are leeches. An application of dry soap on bare legs, ankles will keep them at bay.
Bring your own water and food for breakfast after or you can purchase food from the kiosk. A change of clothes is also advisable. The walk / run is an out and back loop so you can leave your food and clothes in your car until after the run.
