Cargo 2 Grenfell walkers lace up their boots

Because of Covid, this year's Cargo to Grenfell walk on March 13 has been cut to just one day.

The change hasn't dampened the enthusiasm of its participants with teams of walkers from Cargo, Canowindra, Gooloogong and Grenfell expected to take part.

For Grenfell walkers, buses have been organised from Grenfell to take those taking part to Gooloogong.

For all wishing to get a lift down to the start of the walk from Grenfell there will be two buses.

The first service will pick up from Taylor Park (Grenfell) - Departing 6am for Group A walkers starting at 7:30am.

A second service will pick up from Taylor Park (Grenfell) departing 9am for Group B walkers starting at 10am.

Kobie Rogers, who is a member of the Canowindra Crawlers team, will be setting off on her third Cargo to Grenfell walk.

"Altogether there are 18 or 19 of us from Canowindra, it's amazing" Ms Rogers said.

"I started doing (the walk) after myself and Alison Stephens saw the walkers going past one year.

"We've both had family and friends suffering from mental health and thought, we can do that.

"It's something on our doorstep that can help locals.

"We recruited last year and got quite a few more people to come on board.

"A few last year, from the hospital donated their time and did blister stations along the route which was fantastic and this year they have their own team which is excellent."

While this year's walk has been reduced to a single day, from Gooloogong to Grenfell because of Covid, Ms Rogers is under no illusion that the walk won't be hard.

The walk being held over one day isn't the only major change this year, with organisers also giving walkers the option of walking both the full distance to Grenfell or half the distance.
