    Camino de Australia

    Camino de Australia

    Have you ever woken up one morning and thought "I would love to run/walk around Australia"? Or after hearing about St Ignatius' pilgrimage did you think "I would like to do that too"? Or have you ever thought "I really should do a bit more physical activity"?

    If you answered yes to any of the above I would like to invite you to get active and join the Camino de Australia. Saint Igantius College is going to (in a virtual way) walk/run around Australia! You can help by registering and logging your kilometres every week/fortnight/month. Our combined tally will see us travel around Australia (18,452km). Along the way we will visit our friends at every Ignatian/Jesuit College around the continent, stop in at Seven Hill for some fine wine and peace, we will also complete a circuit of Tasmania just for the fun of it.

    As we move toward and achieve milestones motivation and information will be offered to the community. Every fortnight a leader board will be published and the points earned will go towards your house.

    As a personal challenge each participant also enters the Camino de Ignacio [620km]. Those who achieve this from the 31st July to 31st July will be acknowledged at our Feast Day assembly and will receive a personal memento of this pilgrimage. 

    I encourage you to help us achieve this feat and hope that you will in turn encourage your colleagues, family members and students to also participate. We begin this journey on the 1st of September - join us! 

    To register all you have to do is reply to the email sent last week (or contact the College), then start login your kilometres and watch out for updates as we stroll around our nation.
