Walking is one of the most – if not the single most – means of getting and keeping fit. Unfortunately, we tend to spend a sizeable chunk of our waking lives at our desks, in our car seats and on the sofas. All of this inactivity, perhaps unsurprisingly, is less than ideal for our health.
Fortunately, we have at our disposal an entirely natural and accessible means of correcting this problem: walking. Almost anyone can do it, no matter how old, young, fat or thin; there are no barriers to entry.
Those looking to get into walking might start small, with just a ten minute walk around the block. And you can stay small, if you’d like – or you can build up to something extraordinary, like the charity treks you see on these pages. If you’re looking for walking challenges, then we have them in abundance here. These include trips to destinations across the globe – from the stunning Peruvian highlands once occupied by the Incas, to the awesome architecture of the Great Wall of China, to the incomparable natural beauty of the Grand Canyon. With our help, you’ll walk in some of the most spectacular environments the earth has to offer. And you can do it all in aid of your favourite charity.
The challenges vary in their difficulty – whatever your ability, you’ll find something here to meet your requirements. Have you ever wanted to trek across the endless sun-banked sands of the Sahara? Or to climb the snowy slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro? With the help of Global Adventure Challenges, you can do exactly that. Or, if you’d prefer, you can undertake a challenge a little closer to home, in the form of one of the wildly-popular treks across the Brecon Beacons and the Peak District. The choice, as ever, is yours.
Charity walks are a proven and popular way of raising money for your preferred cause. And there is no shortage of worthy causes in the modern world, and no shortage of reasons that you might want to walk. You might walk to fund research into some debilitating disease or other; you might walk to secure clean water for the parts of the world where such things are scarce; you might walk in order to provide disadvantaged people closer to home with a little leg up – or you might walk for any number of other worthy causes.
Suffice to say, the challenges listed here represent a considerable undertaking, and will require a certain level of fitness and good health. Time will tell whether or not you’re up to the test! Take a look through the challenges listed here, and pick one that looks of interest to you. With our help, you’ll finish with memories that’s you’ll be able to look back on for the rest of your life – and, with any luck, a sizeable haul of cash for your charity of choice.
After that, all that you’ve left to do is go and secure yourself some sponsors. What are you waiting for? Get going!
