It’s a hike for a very good cause – Coastrek’s Twilight 20km hike is set to launch in Sydney in March 2023. Coastrek will be hiking for healthy hearts in 2023 in support of the Heart Foundation, raising funds for valuable life-saving research and programs in the fight against heart disease.
Grab the girls and make the most of the late afternoon sun with the Twilight 20km starting at 5pm on the golden sands of Long Reef Beach. You’ll enjoy a twilight trek with your team of besties or workmates along the picturesque stretch of the Northern Beaches coastline, guided by early evening harbour lights (with a little help from an on-trend head torch for the back of the pack) into the finish line at Balgowlah Heights.
Bright tutus, glow sticks, glitter, neon tights and disco-worthy music will get you dancing in the moonlight, injecting a little fun into your fitness.
Coastrek will continue to offer its signature 60km, 45km and 30km distances setting off at sunrise or early morning. However, Coastrek Founder & CEO, Di Westaway said the Twilight 20km will encourage even more women to experience the joys of hiking in the outdoors.
“We want as many people as possible to embrace the Coastrek experience and the 20-kilometre distance is a little less daunting whilst still remaining an adventure challenge with a twilight twist,” says Westaway.
“Training is still essential – fully supported with a Coastrek 6-12 week training program – and all part of getting our trekkers into a healthy routine of fitness that they will benefit from well beyond the finish line.”
