Could you walk 30km in 5 or 6 hours?

The first WOA Point 2 Point 30 (#P2P30) will take place on Sunday 29th September, Daylight Savings Weekend.

#P2P30 is an urban plogging event aimed at those wanting to make a positive difference to their local community whilst also getting some exercise and engaging with other likeminded individuals.

First things first, you don’t have to walk the whole 30kms. You can elect to walk one, two or three of the #P2P30 stages. You can enter individually or make it a relay and enter a team of up to six members. Teammates can choose to walk together or seperately.

From Point Chevalier’s Coyle Park Playground to Wynyard Quarter’s Silo Park
From Wynyard Quarter’s Silo Park to Mission Bay’s Selwyn Reserve
From Mission Bay’s Selwyn Reserve to Point England Reserve

Each pit-swap area will have a place for walkers to prepare for, and recover from, their walk. There will also be a place to offload and recycle the rubbish collected along the route (this is an event for ploggers afterall).

Entry is $20 for adults and $10 for students and $5 for under 12s (entrants under 16yrs must be accompanied by an adult). Teams registration is only $30 (maximum of 6 per team). All/Any profits made from this event will be donated to charity!

What does 1kg of litter look like?

There is no prize for the first team to reach the finish line, unless that team is also the team that collects the most rubbish along the 30km route. The team that picks up the most litter will get a prize, which includes their entry fee refunded. There will also be spot prizes.

The #P2P30 Plogging challenge requires every walker to pick up at least 1kg worth of rubbish along the way or within a 30metre radius of the start, the two ‘pit-swap’ areas and/or the finish.
