Events on the Trail

Year-round there are numerous events organised by other groups to walk or run on the Heysen Trail.

The Jodi Lee Foundation Trek 2021

The Jodi Lee Foundation’s event offers you the challenge of a one or two day hiking or running event on the Heysen Trail. Explore the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula coast and inland countryside around Victor Harbor hiking 80km, 25km or 10km in the name of bowel cancer prevention. If you run out of puff, you can be rescued from supported checkpoints.

The JLF Trek 2021

Barossa Valley
14-15 May, 2021

This event has special meaning ... we're hiking in memory of Tracey Lee Diamond, who sadly lost her battle with bowel cancer in February 2014 aged just 41. Her family is committed to helping us raise awareness about preventing bowel cancer, and is once again the major sponsor of the event.

The JLF Trek is a challenging event. A reasonable level of hiking experience and fitness is needed to take part. If you are concerned about the two day event, you can take the shorter options on day two. For those who are unable to complete it, don’t worry, you can be collected from one of the checkpoints, stationed approximately every 10kms, depending on vehicle access.

The Jodi Lee Foundation raises awareness and education of bowel cancer, a cancer that is 90% curable if detected early. Despite this, it is the second most common cause of cancer-related death in Australia.
