King's Run Around Australia Challenge


Will your HOUSE be the first to do a lap of AUSTRALIA?

Commencing last Friday, 1 May, staff and students were given two weeks to join forces for their Houses, in an attempt to be the first House to complete a virtual lap of Australia. There's still time to get out and get moving, and increase your exercise KMs to get your House across the finish line first!

The Idea

  • Students/Staff contribute their run/walk/ride/swim/surf kilometres towards an accumulative kilometre total for their House.
  • Students/Staff are recommended to use Strava (free and accurate app), Garmin, Run keeper, or an equilivlant fitness App, to record activities and distances.
  • Totals must be recorded and saved to enable verification, when required.
  • First House to make it around Australia, OR House with the highest accumulative KM at the end of Week 4 will be the winner.
  • Students/Staff can go as far, and as many times as they wish, before 5pm Friday, May 15.
  • Enter your results HERE after each activity.
  • Result updates will be shared via COMPASS every few days.

The Rules

  • Use of a treadmill is permitted (take a picture, if no memory)
  • Steps on smart watches DO NOT count.
  • Must keep your results and be able to verify when requested.
  • Use of motorised activities will not be permitted.
  • Prizes for Winning House, PC, and year level.
  • Stay safe - complete your activities with a family member or friend
