Trail Run To Health, Balance And Purpose No Matter The Obstacles
Set goals, reach dreams and improve your health and wellness in the breathtaking winelands
Engage all your senses to conquer an adventurous trail while taking in the breathtaking winelands landscape. Anyone can join the 5 or 10km trail run with or without obstacles at the Lifestyle Challenge at DÁria Wine Estate on Sunday 2 June 2019. Bring your hydration pack – rain or shine – the challenge is on!
FOR ALL AGES
The event organisers believe that family participation is important and they’ve had various age groups attending the events. Children as young as three to 80-year-old grandparents have mastered the route with the assistance from family, friends and crew and encouragement from participants. The event is open to all ages, but children under the age of 13 years must be accompanied by an adult.
CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE
The Lifestyle Challenge trail run gives you a choice between a route with or without obstacles. If you do the obstacle course route, but aren’t comfortable with a specific obstacle, there are alternative exercises you can do. For example, if you choose not to do the cargo net, you can do 30 star jumps instead.
