2019 #walk1000miles badges
The #walk1000miles badge is a magical thing – it marks you out to other 1000-milers and leads to chance meetings that are always exciting. It serves a reminder to you of your epic quest, and it becomes charged up with memories of the thousands of thing you’d never have seen or done if you weren’t out walking.
Highly coveted and something you’ll treasure (honestly!), you won’t have felt this excited about a badge since your sixth birthday!
The badge also gets you 15% off at any Cotswold and Snow+Rock store in the country!

2018 merchandise – for A LIMITED TIME
2018 Completer t-shirts
Soft, comfy, and available in a choice of cool, casual 65% Polyester, 35% ringspun combed cotton marl (£13.99), or made from wicking, odour-fighting 100% polyester AquaFX (look for the word PERFORMANCE in the description, £14.99). This year they're printed using a process called 'sublimation' which results in a softer garment with ink bonded to each fibre rather than stuck on top. That means designs which don't crack or cause sweating and offer great wash-fastness. It also results in a more 'favourite t-shirt' look from new with the designs looking more washed-in, blended-in and subtle. Take a look at the designs up close by clicking the pics.

iron- or sew-on 2018 Patches
Sew one onto your sleeve; iron one onto your rucksack – wherever you attach your #walk1000miles patch it's a permanent reminder of an epic achievement. Use it to spur you on, use it to certify your completion – or use it as a hostage to fortune to make sure you really do finish, for shame of being asked again what that prominent patch is all about!
Each patch is 8cm across, features prominently relief-stitched '1000' and can be sewn- or ironed-on and the price includes post and packaging.

This year in casual cotton and Performance wicking ranges...
New challenge, new approach with this year’s t-shirts – this time softer, and available in a choice of cool, casual 65% Polyester, 35% ringspun combed cotton marl (£13.99), or made from wicking, odour-fighting 100% polyester AquaFX (look for the word PERFORMANCE in the description, £14.99). We’re also using a different printing technique called 'sublimation' this year which results in a softer garment with ink bonded to each fibre rather than stuck on top. That means designs which don't crack or cause sweating and offer great wash-fastness. It also results in a more 'favourite t-shirt' look from new with the designs looking more washed-in, blended-in and subtle. We love it – but please be aware this is a totally different look to last year. (NB – if you want a #walk1000miles logo that really pings, pick a t-shirt with just a small logo on the breast; we're using the traditional transfer method with these.) Oh, and this year you can add a badge or Ruff to your order at the same time as your t-shirt too (though only as a partner purchase – links to purchase badges and / or Ruffs on their own are (or in the case of the Ruffs, will be) lower down this page. In other good news, the t-shirts are cheaper than last year; P&P is £3.95 or free for orders over £50. 10 days delivery.
2018 Ruffs: special price!
Versatile, stretchy and seamless microfibre neck tubes that keep you warm in the cold and cool in the warm, bearing the challenge logo with a background colour of zingy orange or berry burst purple. A pleasure to wear! (Dogs like to wear them too.) Please allow 28 days for delivery, though we aim to do better. Price: now just £5 delivered in the UK, and a bit more overseas. Please note: you can add a Ruff to your t-shirt order when you place it with our t-shirt supplier instead of ordering it here if you like.
