The management team for The Great Aussie Hike consist of a small group of volunteers who are using their imposed ‘Covid downtime’ from the events, travel and fitness industries to develop this program to help with the mental wellbeing of our community during these challenging times.
The pricing structure has therefore been determined based on covering the costs incurred to run the event. This type of event is quite expensive in comparison to other sporting events, due to the length of time the event runs and also requiring multiple sites and staff across a 100km distance. In addition, we are restricted with participant numbers to adhere to COVID-19 safety plans.
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all the individuals and organisations whose generosity have ensured that pricing could remain on par within the industry with no compulsory fundraising.
