Valetudo Health Challenges

The best way to get motivated and to stay motivated is to challenge ourselves with a goal that we would like to achieve. Well if you are looking for a challenge to focus on why not join the Valetudo Health Team on one of their upcoming adventures??? Check out the list below and see which one you fancy. Then contact the Valetudo Health Team for more details. From there we will work with you to get you prepared for the challenge.

In 2012 the Valetudo Health Team took on the Great China Wall Marathon (there is 5, 10, 21 and 42km options) then backed it up with reaching Everest Base Camp (Nepal side). It was an amazing adventure and great to share it with others.

In 2013 the Valetudo Health Team took on the Kokoda Trail in PNG. Over 8 days a team of nine took on the 96km long Kokoda Trail. It was a life changing experience opening our eyes to the terrain the WWII soldiers faced. Another amazing adventure and a great team to share it with!

In 2014, July 26 the big challenge for the Valetudo Health Team was the Australian Outback Marathon with 6, (Alice Springs) 12, 21 and 42km distances. Shane was lucky enough to take the marathon win.

In 2015, on February 22nd the Valetudo Health Team took on the Tokyo Marathon. What an amazing event! So many spectators, so many runners (~30,000) and so many FAST runners! The trip was topped off with a visit to the snow for some snowboarding.

In 2015 we also squeezed in Northshore Marathon in New Zealand on 6 September. There were options for all with 2km, 5km, 10km, 21km and 42km distances. It was a tough but scenic course. The trip was complimented by some downhill mountain biking and we were fortunate to get some snow on the south island and sneak some snowboarding in as well !

In 2016, we took on Ironman Victoria 70.3 in British Columbia, Canada. Another scenic but challenging course. Beautiful freshwater lake swim, followed by a bike course with 900m of elevation gain then a flatish trail run around the lake. Shane was luckily enough to qualify for the World Championships, which was in Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast, QLD in September.

In 2017 the focus is currently on local then a major domestic event being the Melbourne Running Festival which has a distance for all 42 / 21 / 10 / 5.7 / 3km. It is a flat and fast course with the finish in the MCG ! We are helping you arrange complete packages with accommodation, flights, carb loading night, pre event runs and warm ups and group fun :)
