30walksin30days 2020

1st October, 2020

Our 30walksin30days event was due to be held in April but unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. During lock-down lots of people optimised their 2 hours "outdoors" time by getting more active and walking every day. We hope that this will have inspired people to take up the challenge again in October to make the most of the sunny days and light evenings before the clocks change. 

 

When is it?

1st-30th October 2020

 

What do I have to do?

The challenge is to walk just 30 minutes every day for 30 days between 1-30th October 2020.

You can make up the time in blocks eg instead of jumping in your car to get to work or the shops walk 15 minutes there (or longer!) and then back again.

 

Where can I get ideas for different walking routes?

  • We have linked up with the Health Improvement Commission (www.healthimprovement.gg) to raise awareness of their #GetOutThere campaign to encourage islanders to incorporate physical activity into their daily routine as part of the new normal. They have 18 pink and white signs around St Peter Port which show the time, distance and number of steps that it would take to reach destinations in the Town Centre.

  • Visit Guernsey (www.visitguernsey.com) has some great information on the best walking routes around the island with routes of varying distance and difficulty. 

  •  The States of Guernsey (www.gov.gg) has a section on their website that provides information on the Ruettes Tranquilles & Living Streets Guernsey routes.

  •  The National Trust of Guernsey (www.nationaltrust.gg) lists a few walks that incorporate their buildings or land.

 

Event t-shirts are available to purchase but to ensure that as much of the money raised through the event goes directly to supporting patient care we won't be posting them out. We will instead email you when they are ready for collection from our charity shop in St. Martins and will also hold an alternative pop-up collection point in town just before the event starts on 1st October (details to be confirmed). Please email info@lesbourgs.com if you would like to discuss an alternative arrangement.

Thank you for your support!
