The Lake 5 x 5 is a FREE & FUN community walking event and is coming your way in October 2018.

Healthy Cities Illawarra Inc is partnering with PCYC Lake Illawarra, the Heart Foundation and Shellharbour City Council to bring positive change to the community. Connect with people in your local community and get moving while we chat.

Walk 5kms (or a distance that you feel comfortable completing) every Tuesday for 5 weeks in OCTOBER.

2nd – 30th October

We will be meeting at PCYC Lake Illawarra at 3:30pm every Tuesday in October for a healthy snack before the walk begins.

Want to get moving even more? This year, we’re partnering with the Heart Foundation to encourage you to cover the distance of a marathon during October through their #MyMarathon initiative. This can be done by walking a little each day, running a full marathon in one go or anywhere in between. Read more about #MyMarathon and register here: https://www.mymarathon.com.au/. Come along to The Lake 5 x 5 and you’ve already got 25kms done! Meet up with a friend another time during the week to tick off the remaining 17.2kms!

As a bonus, if you attend all weeks of The Lake 5 x 5 you will go in the major prize draw.

Everyone is welcome - bring your kids, parents, friends and colleagues for a fun afternoon!! Prams and dogs are more than welcome. All ages, all abilities. Walking for fun, not for a race.

Don't forget to bring a hat, water bottle and be sun safe.
