Get Danbury Walking

A big Well Done to everybody who took part in the Get Danbury Walking challenges. See below for the summaries for both the Around the World in 80 Days and the Pole to Pole challenges!

 

Looking through the contributors there are a few outstanding performances. Our top family performance for the “80 days” challenge walked 2288765 steps which equates to an impressive 1144 Miles. Our top family effort for the “Pole to Pole” challenge was 1996000 steps or 998 Miles.

 

Individually the top walker on the “80 days” challenge logged up an incredible 1836535 steps or 918 Miles. Whilst our “Pole to Pole” top walker logged 1528154 steps or 764 Miles.

 

We want to recognise all the contributions made and so have prepared a special certificate for each of you. If you would like your certificate, please get in touch with us with your contact details. Please email the name(s) you used when you logged your steps and the names you want on the certificate to: getdanburywalking@outlook.com

 

We are going to take a rest from walking challenges for now, as we know you are all busy catching up with your families and friends now restrictions are easing, but we do have a new project on the horizon!

Easter Monday 5th April: Guided walk to Thrift Wood, The Wilderness and Woodham Walter.

The “Rule of 6” is back so come and join me for a 7 mile, 3 hour circular walk, starting in Danbury and taking in the daffodils  and The Wilderness. Email me if you are interested.

Sue

I have lived in Danbury for thirty years and know the local woodland paths well. I am happy to adapt my walks. I usually walk for about an hour in the morning  but could make it longer or shorter.

Anna

I live in Danbury and enjoy planning routes and getting to know new areas. I am available at weekends and like to walk between 8-10 miles.
