There's a distance for everyone at Mountain to Mouth 2016

With under 4 weeks to go until Mountain to Mouth 2016 (6-7 May), there is still time to commit to the walking program and train for one or more of the stages of Geelong's 80km Extreme Arts Walk.

Local Geelong resident Terri Osburn, who completed the whole 80km walk last time - a huge achievement - encourages others to do any part of the walk at any pace. She described one of the most surprising and memorable parts of the event to be the walk from Moorpanyal Park to Steampacket Gardens, 6.7km through the lit-up industrial landscape arriving in the city centre for Geelong After Dark. Terri says the lights coming from the industrial areas around the bay were amazing.

Mountain to Mouth has a distance for everyone with the longest stage being from Drysdale Station to Swan Bay, 13.9km. The shortest leg is the very scenic 2.8km from Swan Bay to Pt Lonsdale village along a flat, sealed path. Both occur on the Saturday afternoon of the second day (7 May). You choose the challenge, you choose the distance.  Download your Mountain to Mouth fitness program here.
