Why take part?

Take the 10,000 Steps in May Challenge

  • You’re in control of your steps and just getting out of the house for a walk can do so much good. The benefits to your health are huge when you commit to 10,000 steps a day in May
  • Walking can improve fitness
  • Walking is a COVID-safe activity
  • Walking is good for our mental health
  • Walking can help lower blood pressure

How far is 10,000 steps

  • Based on the average person’s stride, 10,000 steps is equal to 5 miles (or 8 km) or an hour and 40 minutes walking, depending on your stride length and walking speed.
  • So by the end of the month you will have walked 150 miles – about the distance from Newport to Tenby.

What happens if I don’t hit my step goal?

  • Don’t panic!
  • You can pause your challenge, or make the steps up another day
  • This is your challenge so we don’t need proof of your completed steps.
