THIS IS A GUIDE ONLY Walkers are responsible for their own ability to complete a walk.

FOR LEADERS If in doubt you should over rate to avoid attracting walkers who are not capable of completing the event. A GPS or Smart phone can help determine the cumulative elevation of the walk. There are excellent free apps available which allow you to record a prewalk or to download walks from other web sites like www.walkgps.com.au.
