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 2016

The Jodi Lee Foundation’s event covers two 40km hiking or running days on the Heysen Trail. If you run out of puff, you can be rescued from supported checkpoints.

The JLF Trek 2016
Southern Flinders Ranges
20 May, 2016

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 distance, you can hike just one of the days, and 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.

Event date: Fri 20 - Sat 21 May 2016
