The FITT Group challenge

10 – 14 January

Climb the maunga - Mt Kaukau - every night for a week and by a different route each night. That was the FITT group's challenge during the week of 10 January. It was interesting to ascend to the top by a different route each night, with many of us doing some of the tracks for the first time. Twenty people joined in, many on multiple nights. Vivienne Healey made all five nights while the rest of us managed between one and four. On the Friday we celebrated with a meal at the Khandallah Pub. The routes we took: Monday - from Sirsi Terrace in Broadmeadows, led by Sue Tunnicliff Tuesday - from Khandallah Pool, led by Vivienne Healey Wednesday - via Bells Track and down to Simla Crescent, led by Nina Sawicki Thursday - from Truscott Park, Johnsonville, led by Vicki Wogan Friday - from Simla Crescent, led by Adrienne Vermeulen.

The FITT (Females in Tramping Training) group has an after-work trip schedule during daylight savings months. Our aim is to boost fitness for weekend tramping. It’s also very social and we often eat dinner out after a tramp. There are about 40 women on the TTC FITT email group. For more, with details of upcoming trips on 11 and 15 March and 3 April, see FITT.
