Perth SixPack Marathon Challenge

 

How does it work?

We’ve created six beautiful and bespoke routes of varying distances that together make up the full 26.2 miles / 42+ kilometres of the MARATHON distance.

Walk, jog or run. It’s up to you. You choose the pace. You choose when to have a go at each route. You decide in which order you walk or run the routes.   

Using state-of-the-art gps mapping technology and turn-by-turn audio navigation science, we’ll keep you on track to achieve your fitness and challenge goals. 

Your entry includes access to all six of these rewarding routes and one very special ‘finish line’ reward. 

What do I get?

  • A fantastic medal
  • Clear, simple instructions for uploading your achievements
  • Access to bespoke route mapping with turn-by-turn audio navigation
  • Chance to see your name on the Challenge leader-board.

A few notes before you go...

  • It is crucial you stick to any social distancing rules and government guidelines that may be in force at the time you undertake any of the routes.
  • Where restrictions apply, you must not travel to complete the SixPack routes.
  • We recommend undertaking the routes at quieter times of the day / week.
  • Please be aware of and be courteous to all other users. You will come across dogs, cyclists and other users. Let’s all share the green space together.
  • Some of the routes will, by necessity, include one or more road crossings. It is essential that you BE AWARE for your own safety at all times and be considerate to other people.
  • Remember you can walk, jog or run each route as many times as you like and re-upload your results.

How do I upload my time?

1) Go back to the entry page (That's here!)
2) Select the tab above that says 'Enter Result'
3) Pop in your time for whichever route you have completed

For example: ‘filled.count.soap’ marks the exact entrance to what3words’ London headquarters.

People use what3words to find their tents at festivals, navigate to B&Bs, and to direct emergency services to the right place.

We have used what3words to share with you the exact start locations for each route. Please download the app – it is great for sharing your location when meeting up with people, but also really useful in emergencies and for navigation.
