For the month of August, we’re introducing a family fun filled activity to walk/run during this month. The aim is to encourage families and friends to get out as much as they can during this month.
To participate, it’s really simple:
- Enter a creative family team name using the link below by Wednesday 5th August.
- Submit your weekly km to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday night. Km’s will count from 3rd August to 30th August.
- Watch your family’s progress on a published weekly leader board.
This is not an overly technical activity and requires you to self-report. For example, if you are a family of 4, and you undertake a 2km walk around your local park this will count as 8km towards your total. If one member then does a 3km run that week, you’re then up to 11km. The only thing we ask you to count in your weekly totals is sustained periods of walking/running.
The walking element is also a fantastic feeder activity if you’ve been looking to get into running. Over the coming weeks we will share details of a structured Couch to 5k programme for September, so why not get moving this month?!
