What is sand skills training and why should I do it?
If you are considering an adventure that involves sand – think multi days or beach, then there are certain tips, hints and training you can do to improve your “sand hiking” fitness and skill level. The end goal is to have your legs as fresh as possible after time on sand.
This is particularly relevant additional training if you are doing our Yuraygir Coastal Hike, The Bibbulmun Track Hike, The Great Ocean Road Hike or even our CoochieMudlo Friday Funday
I haven’t done this before, will I be fit enough?
Our sand skills sessions cover all fitness levels from introductory right up to challenging. So no matter where you are in your fitness, you will be at the right level for the session. Those with a higher level of fitness will have the opportunity to do “repeats” than anyone starting out.
Do I need any special gear?
If you are planning on a multi day adventure that involves sandy trails then we strongly recommend you take your backpack and your hiking boots.
If you are participating simply to boost your fitness, sandshoes are fine.
As we are in soft sand at times, you may wish to lycra ankle gaiters to stop sand getting in your shoes.
Can I come alone?
Of course! Many of our adventurers start out not knowing anyone. By the end of the session, you would think everyone had been friends for years.
