The Great British Walking Challenge
This month Living Streets have launched the Great British Walking Challenge, which aims to get people out and about across the UK, to see how many times we, collectively as a nation, can walk from John O’Groats to Land’s End.
You may have noticed that we here at Treasure Trails HQ are BIG walking fans, so obviously we are getting behind the Great Walking Challenge this month! Throughout the month of May you can log all your walking, whether you’re walking to work, doing a bit of shopping or walking the dog. You can share photos, routes and tips on the site with other participants. The site totals up the number of miles walked and shows you how many times you’ve walked around the world, as well as how many muffin tops have been burned!
If you have a competitive side, you can also see the top individual walked, the areas that have walked the furthest collectively and the business that has covered the most miles. So why not sign up and see if you can make it to the top of the list?
If you or anyone you know wants to take part, then the resources are available on the site, including fundraising packs. You can find out more about the Great British Walking Challenge here http://www.livingstreets.org.uk/walk-with-us/events-and-challenges/great-british-walking-challenge.
If you don’t know much about Living Streets, they’re a national charity that stands up for pedestrians, working with you to create an attractive and enjoyable environment where the streets are safe to walk. They do some great things for the community and as we have many Trails based in towns and cities across the UK they are a great help to us as well!
