There is no entry fee, but a $50 donation is to be paid at the time of registration. By registering you are committing to raise a minimum of $200 for your chosen charity. The $200 minimum is per participant not per team. Remember, all donations over $2 are tax-deductible and 100% of donations go directly to the beneficiaries.

How long will it take me to walk 50km?
It depends on your fitness , intended speed and how long you rest at checkpoints. Some good runners take just under 4 hrs, but it may take 5-6 hrs depending on your speed. If you are walking on average it could take anywhere between 7-11 hours.
The event is not a race, but many participants do run (or combine running and walking).
Do I need a support crew?
It is strongly recommended that participants have a support crew. It is impractical to carry all necessary supplies (food, drink & clothes) but a support crew is not essential.
Will my mobile phone work?
Since the walk is through metropolitan Melbourne, mobile phone reception should be available the whole 50km. We recommend carrying a phone for emergencies or so you can contact your support crew or us if you need to.
