Stepping up to the Challenge
Let's Walk Cymru have a new initiative to encourage the Welsh public to get out and enjoy the beautiful countryside that we sometimes take for granted. In conjunction with Ramblers Cymru and Change4Life Wales they have launched the Wales Pedometer Challenge. You can sign up individually, or as a team to walk as many miles as you can of the Wales Coast Path, or the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge, and record your achievement with a pedometer, so you can claim bragging rights on the challenge website leaderboards. One individual has already clocked up 848 miles, while the total distance walked by all participants currently stands at 53,387 miles!
This is part of the build up to the Big Welsh Walk over the May Bank Holiday Weekend.
