Here are a few equipment
tips to help make sure you
remember your challenge
for the right reasons.
Look after your feet. Start off by getting a good pair of boots which fit you. They should be suitable for the kind of walking you plan on doing – the rougher the terrain, the heavier duty the boot you will need. Also think about socks; most people use a very thin pair under a thicker pair to help prevent blisters.
Dress properly. What you need depends on the time of year and conditions –and remember these conditions may be completely different up the hill to what they were when you left the car. Start with a moisture-wicking base layer then add insulating and windproof layers on top. Pack a waterproof outer layer, and maybe a hat and gloves.
Food and drink. Keep fuelled up and you’ll keep on striding, so remember to pick up a packed lunch but bring a few snacks and plenty of fluids.
Be prepared if things go wrong. Every walker should carry some kind of emergency kit. We recommend a torch, a spare warm layer, some personal first aid supplies, and some extra food are also essential
Carry it all comfortably. You’ll need a bag to throw everything in, but it doesn’t need to be too big.
No pre requisites. Participants must be able to complete the participation agreement and have a reasonable level of fitness
