Walking Subiaco

Did you know that walking has a raft of benefits to your physical, mental and even financial health? There are many ways to walk Subiaco, including solo and group opportunities you can find on our website.

www.subiaco.wa.gov.au/Things-to-do-in-Subi/Recreation-and-sport/Walking

One of the best opportunities though is to join the Walk over Subiaco challenge! Create a team of four and see how far your team can get along the Bibbulmun Track by registering at www.getontrackchallenge.com.au. You can enter your exercise via your fitbit, Garmin, Jawbone or just by typing in your physical activity for the week. Prizes will be awarded in categories of family, workplace, men’s, women’s and seniors. To get involved, make sure you’re registered as soon as possible; the challenge starts on Monday 3 October and registrations close 11.59pm on Wednesday 5 October.

If you’d like to register your family, please feel free but note that you will have to register children as if they were aged 18 or over. This is because Diabetes WA considers the health information on the get on track website overcomplicated for children. However, with a parent or guardian’s support Diabetes WA and the City of Subiaco agree that there is no reason children should not be able to participate in the challenge.

More information on walking Subiaco can be found at www.subiaco.wa.edu.au, or by contacting Senior Community Development Officer Sean Simpson on 9237 9260 or at seans@subiaco.wa.gov.au
