The Bayside to Bald Hills 2013 is a non-competitive walk/cycle or run. Please check the course map to see where and when you start. The Starting Time is staggered to allow all participants to arrive at the Finish Line in time for the Breakfast. Any gear left at your start point will be shuttled to the finish line. Please label it clearly.
There will be three waterstations between the 15km start (Decker Park, 25th Avenue, Brighton) and the finish (Green Apple Wellness Centre, 21 Bald Hills Road, Bald Hills). These are manned by volunteers who will provide you with water, encouragement and, if necessary, First Aid. Please be courteous to these supporters.
At the end of the event you will be given your medallion and a stamp on the back of your hand which will entitle you access to the Breakfast Table (Note: You may continue to return to the Breakfast Area only if you have a visible stamp.)
Non-participants who have previously paid for breakfast and all volunteers who have helped on the event must approach the Finishers’ Table for their stamp. The officials will have a list of names of all people entitled to breakfast.
T-shirts and starting numbers to be collected at the Green Apple Wellness Centre, 21 Bald Hills Road, Bald Hills between 15th July and 20th July or at your starting point on the 21st July.
If necessary, a Green Apple vehicle will shuttle you back to the 6/10/15km start point to collect your vehicle. Where possible, please arrange for back-up support to meet you at the finish line.
Bring some money to spend at the finish line. We plan lots of fun activities.
Money is raised during this event in several ways:
· Your entry to the event
· Sponsorship money you raised (We have prizes for the top three fund-raisers)
· Supporting the activities at the finish line
We have raised over $200,000 for this charity over the years.
Camp Quality needs our help again in 2013.

“I had only been at the gym for a few months last year when I was challenged to do the 6km walk from Deagon to Bald Hills. I was horrified and felt as though it was too far and I would not make the distance. It took a lot of persuasion to get me to sign up.
What changed my mind was the fact that the instructors kept saying give it a go you will never know until you try. Therefore, I dusted my shoes and got myself involved it started to be a good day until all these negative emotions started to creep in and I wondered what have I got myself into. Will I make it what happens if I don’t etc.
Once we got going, I was fine. Walking with a bunch of clowns made the day. It was so much fun. I felt as though all the negative emotions had disappeared. It was not very difficult to do when I look back. It gave me something to aim for and a sense of fulfillment. The instructors were right when they said give it a go. People say there is a light at the other end. Believe it! It changed my body and me forever. And in addition, when you get to the end a delicious breakfast is waiting, making it all worthwhile. Challenge yourself, you will be surprised.” Genniene Aylett
