About this Event

WALK CHALLENGE IS BACK!

Family walk challenge.

Bethells Sand Dunes Lake Waimanu Loop Track Perfect for adventurous teens, younger families (4-5 year old kids love this spot) and anyone who loves lakes, dune runs, slides, rolls, etc. Walking over the dunes, it's seriously like being on the moon!... combining rainforest with a taste of the Sahara.

Parents with children are encouraged to join. Families walk in their own bubble and privacy however we walk as large team. RT communication for scattered walking. Each registered participant will receive a racer bib number - it's a wonderful memorabilia.

Grade Easy - Total ascent 164m Time ~2.5hr return - Distance 6km around the lake

Rain Date - TBC. Follow the AMY Facebook post for further details.

Registrations - Register online, acceptance will be confirmed via a confirmation email. Spaces are very limited. Every participant needs to be registered separately. A family of 5 will need to register 5 participants. Each registered participant will receive a racer bib number.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event? Car pooling is recommended were possible. Everyone meets at the dunes at 7.30 am. Bring your own transport - note its an hour drive from Manukau therefore calculate your travel time. The idea is to leave for the event immediately after your FAJR SALAH and meet up at 7.30 am. There are spots of zero mobile network coverage along the drive and perhaps at the venue too. A car park is visible just after a single lane bridge.

Bethells beach is approx 1KM away from the dunes. If families want to visit the beach, they can do so on their own. This walk challenge will start and conclude at the dunes - beach visit is not covered in this activity.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? The minimum age to enter is 18 years of age unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Aotearoa Muslim Youth takes no responsibility. Individuals are responsible for their own well-being, health and safety including supervision. Open to Families - Parents with children are encouraged to join. Families walk in their own bubble and privacy however we walk as large team.

What can I bring into the event? Warm Jacket, Sunhat, sunglasses, WATER, fun attitude, sunscreen if its a hot day, good comfortable walking shoes and any nibbles you might eat along the track. Please remember this is a zero waste event so any items not consumed including wrappers must be either disposed in the waste management bins located at the start/finish zone OR taken away with you.

Special considerations? Please dress appropriately, Islamic dressing code to be observed.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions? We'd love to hear from you if you have any questions. Please email amy.muslim.youth@gmail.com
