Trio take on Track at great speed

Anything is possible on the track with the latest accomplishment being Kiwi and Aussie combo Kaz, Rory and Nikki, currently residing in Perth, spending the last five days running the Cape to Cape Track from End to End.

With preparation the key to their success the team averaged 27kms per day in the speedy time of 4 hours.

“It has actually been a lot easier than we thought,” said Nikki.

“I didn’t think we would get to day 5,” she said.

“I think it’s just knowing your own limits,” said Kaz. Knowing what your body can do,” she said.

Taking the hike to anther level, running it rather than walking, it proved to be still enjoyable and injury free.

“It’s been good. Everyday has had its different challenges but overall it’s been a pretty cool adventure,” said Nikki.

Whilst was joking about the highlight being getting to the car at the end of each day one of the real highlights was running from Injidup to Ellensbrook.

“Yesterday was my favourite run,” said Nikki.

“Just a really cool track and it was on the coast for the most of it,” she said.

“Not a lot of uphill sand,” added Kaz.

Their final advice for Cape to Cape Track Self Guided walk…

Preparation and look at your maps everyday.

Super speedy effort Kaz, Nikki and Rory!

The Cape to Cape Track can be a challenging walk at times due to the diversity and nature of the terrain and requires preparation.

Training and fitness are also imperative and Cape to Cape Explorer Tours strongly recommend training regularly for at least 2 months prior to the commencement of the tour and wear  very well-worn-in boot to prevent blisters and injury.

Young Professionals defeat the heat on the Track

Ellese Graham and Leena Zhou from Melbourne, recently took on the whole Cape to Cape and completed the End to End Experience in the hottest week of the hottest month of the year.

Ms Zhou said that even though at times it was warm, their self-guided tour was still both achievable and enjoyable.

“Definitely very manageable, as you have got a cooling headwind and are always by the coast anyway, so you get a nice breeze which slows down the temperature for a bit,” said Ms Zhou.

Highlights from the tour were finding secluded beaches to stop for lunch and bathing in the south west waters.

“Cape Mentelle was just incredible, hanging out in the rock pools, beautiful just beautiful,” she said.

Ms Graham said that she enjoyed all of the accommodation, but her very favourite was CCET’s accommodation at Smith’s Beach.

“Having that balcony looking over the water, can’t beat it, said Ms Graham.

They both suggested that other walkers should consider including a wine tour or cooking class during their Cape to Cape experience.

Cape to Cape Explorer Tours can customise you tour to just the way you like it and whilst wine tours and cooking classes can be included so can caving, mountain biking, kayaking, artisans, wildflowers, breweries, lighthouse tours and more.
