Since our last post, the seasons have changed and our roads and parks feel busier. Today, SA Premier Steven Marshall and Chief Public Health Officer Professor Nicole Spurrier announced restrictions will start easing from Monday. Regional travel is allowed, sport training is back, campgrounds are open and we can enjoy outdoor dining again. If all goes well, it’s looking more likely that The JLF Trek will go ahead in August – fingers crossed!

To celebrate the good news, we are looking to our friends at Walking SA for training inspiration.

With over 630 walking/hiking tours that range from a one hour walk with your dog, a half day hike in a park, or a longer trail through SA’s national parks, Walking SA has you covered for both convenience and endurance.

For a short walk close to town, take a look at Randell Park Reserve in Mitcham – a 3.6km circuit that will lead you through pine and eucalyptus forests with a beautiful view of the city. If you want to challenge yourself and make a day of it, have a look at the 22km Pioneer Women’s Trail from Verdun to Beaumont. This historical trial dates back to 1838 when women would carry fresh produce from the village to Adelaide.

If you post your walk on social media, don’t forget to tag. We love to see you out training!
