Dr Nathan Gibson, Cate Wray, Cindy Branch-Smith and Dr Edward Petch recently took on the 50 kilometre Oxfam Trailwalker Challenge.
Team Psychlists participated in training sessions on the trails over the past three months, increasing fitness, endurance, strengthening legs and toughening toes.
The walk commenced in Chidlow at 8.15am and winds down to Mundaring along the Heritage Trail, in Darlington, before heading south to Helena Valley into Kalamunda. The home stretch trails in the dark through Mundy Regional Park, eventually reaching the finish line at Federation Gardens in Forrestfield.
The walk was challenging, both psychically and mentally and the team crossed the line in good spirits at 9.54pm in 13 hours 39 minutes.
Thank you to all who donated – Team Psychlists raised $2,640.
We will keep you posted on the ‘next’ challenge.
