Tips and Tools for the Walk4Wellbeing

Ideas for how to track your progress, fundraise online and connect with other walkers on the day!

 

Top Tips for Long-Distance Walks

How to track how far you walk?

Whatever distance you walk on the day (whether 3.5km, 3.5 miles or even 35km!) you can track your progress using the Strava app. 

Strava is a great way to track your steps and record walking distances, times and routes on a visual map for your friends and family to see. The app is really simple to set up. 

You can also connect Strava directly to your fundraising page so those who have donated can track your progress on the day. Click here to see how. 

We also have a Walk4Wellbeing Strava club which you can join to connect with other supporters to share, chat and get to know each other.  You can find our club under – Walk4Wellbeing team SignHealth.

*Note: If you use Strava, we advise starting and finishing your journey recording somewhere other than your home so that your address is not made public. For more information about Strava visit the website.
