What it’s all about

Why walk 1000 miles?

‘It might sound inconceivable: can I walk 1000 miles in a year? Really? But once you give yourself a goal and start putting one foot in front of the other, you start to realise what an incredibly joyful experience walking is. It will feel like an incredible achievement when you get to 1000 miles – and I can guarantee, you won’t want to stop!’
