I've signed up. Can you log all walking ie daily walking to work etc or just proper organised walks?

Good luck everyone

As Andy says it doesn't really matter how you tick the miles off. You can set your own rules and guidelines but from CW magazine last year, they suggested miles walked as part of a commute, a lunch time walk, walking the dog,  weekend walking as well as longer distances on walking holidays. It is basically any mileage where you are actually making the effort to get out and walk (including, as Andy says, a walk to the local shops).
You will find the miles soon start to add up quite quickly. From this year's challenge I found it was good to do extra mileage during the spring and summer to offset against those days later in the year when you just don't fancy going out much.
Good luck :)

I am just back from an 8.5 mile bimble with the dog, but will probably add that to the 2015 tally and start the 2016 challenge on Jan 1.

My 2015 challenge total so far is up to 1080 miles, something I need to try and better for next year

Signed up.  2015 was a very poor walking year for me.

In the past I used my own rules of 'A walk has to be 3 miles plus and the main reason for being out and about.'  Anything less than 3 miles were a stroll :-).

Andy, do you think it would help if participants used your list to keep a running total of their mileage?

Good idea, maybe ask mods for this to be a pinned thread too.

Why not? Seems a good idea to me :)


Just copy, paste and edit each time you want to add to it :)

I'm inclined, for now at least, to hold off on that....for two reasons.


First of all, the Admins don't want too many pinned threads, and I can understand that. Secondly, with nine of us on the list (with plenty of room for more) updating this thread regularly, it should be pretty much in the top few threads all year anyway. The thread i used for my Peddars Way/NCC walk has had no posts for over 6 weeks and is still in the top half of the page.


Definitely something to keep in mind and maybe act on at a future point

Okay, I will do that, another way to keep track of the miles total
This year I just used a calendar at work, writing on it the,daily amounts, adding it up and then  keeping a weekly running total

You can but better still Quote, add your date, then remove the quote tags so it just appears as a normal post :)


That way the next person can quote the latest and most up to date list each time :)
