The JLF Trek VIC 2016

About the Event

The JLF Trek (VIC) will take place along parts of the Goldfields Track, a stunning trail that connects the towns of Ballarat and Bendigo and provides a pathway to central Victoria’s hidden treasures.

This magnificent trail weaves its way through open country, beautiful forests and past old mining relics as it crosses the Great Dividing Range.

We will cover 72km of the Goldfields Track over 2 and 3 September. The event is challenging and a reasonable level of hiking experience and fitness is required.

On the first day the trail will take you along a section of the Wallaby Track from Mollongghip to Hepburn Springs which is a moderate hike, requiring an average level of fitness. The second day follows a section of the Dry Diggings Track from Hepburn Springs to Fryerstown which include challenging climbs that require experience and a medium to high level of fitness.

Due to great interest in the event we have been able to expand it, but be quick as places are strictly limited to 250 participants. An entry fee of $165 will confirm your place. Registrations close on 31 July 2016 unless sold out prior. Participants will receive an event kit, which will include a JLF cap, hike guide, registration bib and a little black tutu.

Fundraising is an important element of the event with money raised helping us prevent bowel cancer. If each participant raises $1,000 we will reach our fundraising target of $250,000. We are grateful for every dollar that’s raised and are here to help you wherever we can. You can download our Fundraising Guidelines here.
