Venue: Field 2, Fred Caterson Reserve, Castle Hill.

This series showcases the wonderful parks, reserves and bushland of the Hills District and western Sydney.

It mixes exercise - at whatever pace you like (walk, jog or run) - with a simple navigational challenge. If you can read a street directory you can do it! It's a great way to explore a suburb.

You can go solo, with a buddy or in a small group (friends or family members).
