Take on a 30km hike for the ultimate team bonding experience

Jun 12, 2019

​It’s no secret that mental and physical health go hand in hand. What’s good for your body is good for your mind. Add in a team challenge and you have yourself the ultimate work bonding activity.

Studies have shown again and again that physical activity increases work performance through a myriad of benefits such as:

  • improved concentration
  • sharper memory
  • faster learning
  • prolonged mental stamina
  • enhanced creativity
  • lower stress.

Finding the time to get to the gym or go for a run however can be hard and often it takes making a commitment to yourself, or your work, to make physical activity a priority.

Taking on a team challenge out of the routine work environment can help foster a great culture among colleagues. Corporate team-building events encourage trust, communication, teamwork and problem solving and coupled with physical activity – the benefits speak for themselves.

Adelaide Coastrek is back this year on Friday 20 September, offering even more benefits to corporate teams.

Last year, over 1,300 participants (in teams of four) trekked 30km or 60km along the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula, raising more than $960,000 for mental health and wellbeing in Australia. Each with their own motivation, the participants became a collective, taking part in something greater than a fitness challenge.

Beyond Blue welcomes people of all fitness levels to join Adelaide Coastrek and make a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing in Australia.
