Welcome to Walk Da Rock 2021!
As we ease ourselves out of lockdown, taking part in our local Summer Step Count Challenge may be just the thing to help boost your wellbeing with friends, family or colleagues.
The challenge is FUN, FREE and open to ANYONE in Shetland! You can take part in the challenge in teams of up to 5 members (you can register and take part as an individual if you want but it might make the challenge harder!).
The challenge will run for 6 weeks, starting at 9am on Monday 5th July and ending at 5pm on Monday 16th August.
When you register you can make a closed team and invite friends, or leave your team open for others to join. You can use an activity tracker or pedometer to count up your steps, use the app to fill in your progress, or you can enter how many miles you’ve done – the online database will then total up your team’s progress, see how far you’ve gone and put you on the leader board.
When it comes to exercise anything is better than nothing, and walking for just 10 minutes can have lots of health benefits – not just for your physical health and fitness, but for your mental health and wellbeing too.
See how many friends, family or colleagues you can get involved - let’s make Shetland the most active place in Scotland!
