Why 4 km?
1 in 4 young Australian's between the ages of 12 & 25 will be live with a mental health issue, and of those only 1 in 4 will seek help. So if a 4 km walk can highlight these stats and make more of society aware that's a good thing.
The Walk 4 head space will start from Bellarine Sunset Run HQ behind the Port Pier Cafe @ 6 Pier St Portarlington and will start immediately after the half marathon.
It will make its way in the opposite direction to the runs heading 2 km towards Point Richards along the Bellarine Coastal Trail passed the caravan park before turning back to return walking with a view of the Portarlington Pier at sunset.
The terrain is a nice flat unsealed gravel trail (40m of beach) suitable for strollers, children and the elderly and on course we will have water hydration stations and course marshals to help make your walk more pleasurable.
