The JLF Trek SA 2023

About the Trek

19 & 20 MAY 2023

The JLF Trek is an endurance event designed to challenge you physically and mentally. A medium to high level of fitness is required but with the right preparation and attitude you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve. Whether you complete the full two-day event or a shorter section, this weekend will leave you inspired and ready to take on the world.

Taking place through the beautiful Kuitpo Forest and stunning Fleurieu Peninsula countryside. 

The Friends of the Heysen Trail voluntarily maintain the walking trail and mark it with distinctive red arrow markers to help hikers stay on the track. These can sometimes be difficult to follow if you are not paying attention, so be prepared for some orienteering.

The Jodi Lee Foundation is the event organiser. If we consider the route is unsafe due to heavy rain, lightning, high winds, bushfire or the like, we will re-route, find an alternative shortened course or cancel the event. No refund of registration fees or money raised will be made, and your registration fee cannot be transferred to another JLF Trek or event. This is also the case if you choose not to participate in the modified event. Due to the months of preparation involved, the event will not be re-scheduled to any other weekend. We also reserve the right to change the route or checkpoint locations or distances as necessary. Any changes will be communicated to participants prior to the event.
