South to Sirromet successful finish!

All done for 2022, went 6:45am to 9:45am, worked out to be 18.5km including Sirromet driveway. Worked out very well, might be a slightly different route next year. 🎉🙏🤠 thank you to all who have contributed. 

On the home stretch

Thank you to all my fantastic supporters to get to $2,000 raised. It has been a hectic 6 weeks or so, but I've been rolling the legs over in preparation for 20th November.

I have my high vis and camel back hydration pack ready to roll....

Fitness set back

I've been unwell since last week, with a pesky cough and lacking energy so minimal KMs this week. On the bright side, minimal appetite so that means I've lost a few kegs with this latest sickness pox 🤨🤔...

Course preview/recon

The course is looking good - full drive through with my wife Vickie to give the tick of approval.... no major obstacles, just 1 tight space at the Cnr of Broadwater and Mt Cotton Rd.

Otherwise, plenty of space to make it happen. The most direct route is just a touch under 20km (17km).

Good training walk/shuffle on Sunday morning!

I am taking on 'South to Sirromet' in 2022! (my 'own way' P2P event)!

I've committed to being part of Team Smiddy at the 2022 Point to Pinnacle - by taking on a local variation of the challenge, I'm calling 'South to Sirromet'. 

That means in November, I'll be heading to Burbank and Mt Cotton to Sirromet Winery on foot!

Why am I taking on this challenge?

Because I'm committed to the long, hard road to fight cancer and I want to try something I've never done before... 

Like many in the community, I've been touched by cancer, including bowel and lymphoma. In this instance, I'm attempting this hike in memory of a great friend and one of a kind.... my wife's best friend and bridesmaid, passed away under difficult circumstances from Bowel Cancer in March 2011. We all miss her dearly and she will be cheering me on in spirit - she loved Sirromet and went to at least one Day on the Green that we can remember!

And this is where I need your help.

Will you support my fundraising by making a donation today?!
