The Heart Foundation's Kettering Walkers Group have conquered the Hartz Peak. A regular trot up Saddle Road or Groomebridge's obviously makes the Hartz a stroll in the park if the picture below is anything to go by. Nepal beckons!

A report on the group's latest exploits appears in the 20 December edition of the Kingborough Chronicle.

Following is an extract from the Chronicle article:

Thanks to Heart Foundation Walking and the regular weekly walks around Kettering, the Kettering Walkers were fit enough to recently do a day walk. The walk took them alongside lakes and trams, through magnificent alpine country, as they climbed one of south western Tasmania’s most accessible peaks, Hartz Peak – 1255  metres above sea level.
With its 360-degree views over Hartz Mountains, the South West Ranges and beyond, the group said it was a truly superb walk, and they are most appreciative of belonging to Heart Foundation Walking to give them the incentive to keep fit.
