The Tramping Group activity takes place every second Friday. You will need to have a basic level of fitness. Before coming on a tramp you may like to give the Walking group or the Puriri Street Run / Beginners Tramping activity a try.
The tramping group has been running for many years and we have enjoyed trips to just about every part of Canterbury. We go northwards and westward to the Canterbury foothills as far as Arthur’s Pass, down to the Rakaia River and Rangitata Valleys. Another area we visit is Banks Peninsula. Actual walking time can range from two to five hours dependent on location. It is a good idea to ask about the nature of any particular scheduled tramp. Some are a lot easier than others but even within the same tramp we do cater for a slower and faster group. Members have input into the tramp location. You will need suitable footwear and a raincoat as basic requirements.
The health and well-being benefits of walking are well established. If you think you would like to get some great exercise and get out of town for the day we’d love to hear from you.
Please talk to Chris or Di for details regarding this group.
