And walking with other people can be a great way to catch up, build friendships or just have fun. Meeting up with others to walk doesn’t always need to be formally arranged, sometimes it can just happen if the mood takes you or the time is right.
This impromptu walking usually takes someone to announce they will be going for a walk and inviting others to join them. That walking ‘champion’ could be you.
These downloadable resources help explain how you can encourage others to walk more, and how this can make you a Walking Champion.
