Well, so far we have 11 members of this forum committed to walking 1000 miles in the coming year. Hopefully we'll have more names added by New Years Day

I could be in for this. Dog and I normally do about 3,000 per year together and I do another few hundred on my own so I should be done by end of March :-)

At the latest........


We need to bring you down to the level of us mere mortals. I propose a handicap system, whereby you start at minus 2000 miles :D

Welcome to the group peapod :)


Dave, we've created a monster :D

Andy, it was a good idea of yours to spread the word.
I know one of the things CW encourage is to let as many people know what you are doing as possible. The mileage total is a personal record which you keep for your own benefit, no competition or anything but the more people know what you are doing the more incentive there is and at the end of the day the more everyone gets out and does more walking the fitter they will be.
Looking forward  to starting the record on Jan 1 :)

This will hopefully get me out a bit more - need to shed a few pounds anyway!

I would love to take part in this challenge but...I know I won't manage to fit that much in.  I might keep any eye on how you're all doing and aim to get 500 miles done.  I like the idea of tracking it all year to see how I do, I might suprise myself  :) 
Good luck to you all - and if your in or near the Wye valley give me a shout.

Andy, you're on.  I've signed up.  Completing will all hang on fitting in a couple of quick walks in routinely 3 or 4 times a week.
