Earlier this week a new fitness challenge was announced. Celebrating the newly joined up Centenary Trail, the CBR 100 Challenge includes team participation to walk 25, 50 or 100km along with solo runs of 50 or 100km (yes, you read that right).
I thought this sounded like a really nice thing to do (the team walk, I’m not a runner unless chased by something ferocious). Maybe take on a 50km walk challenge with a couple of friends and use it as a great focus to get fit and enjoy the Canberra fresh air and walking tracks.
Until I went to look for more details, including registration costs.
Note: team costs are per team, so would be spread between three participants.
All money raised will go to the Heart Foundation which is a great cause, but I can’t help but wonder if they would perhaps attract more participants across the community and promote exercise if the registration was more attainable.
Or, is this the cost these days once relevant insurances and infrastructure is put in place?
