The Adare Trekkers team which took part in the recent Coastrek along the Fleurieu coastline made some remarkable feats.

They were the oldest team to walk the Coastrek 30-kilometre trek, with an average age of 73.5 years.

Margie Field, who was a member of their team, was the oldest walker at 83 years.

"Several teams from Victor Harbor did the walk and we are proud to be part of them," Margie said.

Out of 312 teams in their category, the Adare Trekkers came in at 154th position based on their time. In terms of fundraising, out of 350-plus teams, the Adare Trekkers placed 19th.

They collected $5724, which they said was a magnificent effort and they thanked their many supporters, both from the Adare Church and the community.

Overall, $900,972 was raised for Beyond Blue through Coastrek. The team congratulated all who contributed.
