12,000 steps every day for a month
Our Step Up For January is back for 2021. This walk is perfect for those who want to get back into exercise after Christmas and also perfect for those who want a COVID safe event. This is a walk you can do with people in your own house hold as well as friends who may not be in your household as you can maintain a 2m distance whilst still getting some gentle exercise in. This is tougher than you think so please don't underestimate the challenge of this event.

12,000 steps a day for a month? How far is that?
Based on the average person’s stride it’s 6 miles (9.65km). You would have walked 186 miles by the end of the month. It would be like walking from Swansea to London, or Manchester to Cardiff.
How can I hit my steps target?
There are plenty of ways you can hit your daily target. Perhaps you’ve got a job where you’re walking or perhaps you could even walk to work. If you’ve got a dog take the dog out for extra walks.
Can I skip a day?
Don’t panic if you have an off day. You could always make the steps up on a nice weekend walk with the family – or just put in a bit of extra effort and make up the numbers across the next week.
How can I track my steps?
All you need is a pedometer that will count your steps for you. Your phone will have lots of free apps to track your steps each day or you can buy one from your local gym or running shop.
