30 Walks in 30 Days 2023
1st April, 2023
Our 30 walks in 30 days fundraiser is kindly supported by:
In celebration of the clocks changing and arrival of Spring this is a great way to get more active, enjoy the lighter days and be motivated into a new fitness routine.
WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?
Take your pick! All we encourage you to do is walk every day for 30days between 1st-30th April but everyone is different so here are some ideas for your own challenge:
- Walk a Daily Mile every day for 30 days. Be inspired by the Health Improvement Commission's walking routes in St Peter Port (pink signs) or by the West Coast, reservoir and parks (green signs). Visit www.healthimprovement.gg for more information.
- Walk 10,000 steps every day for 30 days.
- Challenge friends and family to see who can walk the most steps during the month
- Sign up as a team of 4 and challenge another team (think inter-office or inter-firm rivalry!) to see who can walk the most steps during the month
- Choose where you walking would take you in the world as a target. For example a team of 4 could cover 660 miles during the month (based on 10,000 steps a day) which would take them as far as Denmark or Spain. Where would you go?
You can walk whenever you like so whether it is as the sun is rising to celebrate the start of the day, your commute to and from work, to collect shopping, walk the dog, in your lunch hour or when the children are in bed - the timing is up to you and what fits in with your day.

There are some excellent local resources available which we are very excited to promote:
The Health Improvement Commission
"Walk this Way" is a brilliant initiative to help people get active. The team have set up 16 walking routes in St Peter Port and St Sampsons which are perfect for inspiring a break from the office in your lunch hour plus an additional 6 walks around the reservoir area to explore the lanes and perhaps undiscovered places. Each sign has useful information about the distance, number of steps you will cover and estimated time that it will take you. There is a also a digimap link which shows the routes on a map which can be accessed while you are out and about.
NEW** 8 Daily Mile walking routes in parks and green spaces.
You don't need to be a visitor to use this excellent resource of 20 walking routes. They are clearly laid out to help you discover parts of the island that work for you with details about the length of walk (1hr/1.5hr/2hr or 2.5+hr), terrain (easy/moderate/hard) and on some there are audio guides which provide you with information about the history of the area or highlighting things that you may see. Time to discover parts of the island you may never have been to before!
There is a large network of lanes across the island which offer a quieter walk. You can download the leaflet from the States of Guernsey website or use the Ruettes Tranquilles app to find out more.
The National Trust
The Trust has acquired a number of parcels of land around the island and has walking routes listed with clear information about location, facilities and nearby bus routes.
