Pink Bra 96X59px

Are you ready for some fun? 'Playful April' is a team challenge celebrating the 'Rule of 6'. Create a team of up to 6 people and walk, talk and have some fun together whilst achieving your personal goal!

Each week of April we will be sending you a different challenge along with some fun things to do… after all, it is Playful April! But, it all comes together in week 4… this is the week that wins the medal, so choose your week 4 challenge from the list below and get ready to have some Walking fun in the sun! 

Rule of 6 = team of up to 6... but remember whilst you walk together, your final week's challenge is yours alone!

'Take it Steady!' - Walk 3 miles in 54 minutes - 3 times in week 4

'Ramp it Up!' - Walk 4 miles in 1 hour -  3 times in week 4

'Intensity!' - Walk 5 miles in 1 hour 5 minutes - 3 times in week 4

You can choose from having a Unique Monthly Challenge Spring medal with full Walk the Walk support, or you can do it purely for the love of Walking with our Free option

Every step you take walks us closer to our £1 million goal and funds for those who need it most!

Walking with friends in the sunshine... what's not to love!

The Monthly Challenge and ‘Playful April!'

Each month, Walk the Walk bring you different walking challenges. This month is all about re-awakening the joy of walking together whilst improving your walking skills. Whether you have taken on other monthly challenges or you’re a newbie, we will give you all the tools you need to start improving your style and speed so you walk a certain distance in a certain time frame... not once, but three times!

 

What is 'Playful April'?

This month's challenge is a team challenge celebrating the 'Rule of 6!' Create a team of up to 6 people and walk together to achieve your individual goal! Let's celebrate being able to meet up and walk together again!

 

Pick your challenge and get ready to have some Walking fun in the sun! Rule of 6 = team of up to 6! Although your mileage challenge is an individual target, everyone in your team will need to complete their mileage for you to receive your medals. Nothing motivates a team like a medal! 

 

To achieve your chosen goal, we will email a challenge for each week of April so you can get ready for week 4... plus we will send a few extra fun things to do... this is 'Playful April' after all!

How will the challenge be tracked?

Upload your picture showing your completed distance in your set time!

Please take a picture or screenshot x 3 in the final week to show your completed distance in the time allowed and upload it here. This must be received by Monday 3rd May 2021 to enable us to send your well-deserved medal (paid option). Please note: Even if you connect to Strava and it has uploaded your completed challenge to your fundraising page, this form must also be completed in order to confirm your proof of completion.

 

Once we have notification your challenge is complete we will send an online congratulatory certificate and your well-deserved medal will follow in the post.

 

What is Strava?

Strava is a free app to download, that uses GPS to record your distance walked... this can be automatically connected to your online fundraising page on entry.

 

How do I get it?

You can connect your Strava account when you create your online fundraising page or later on via the "Connect to Strava" button on your fundraising page. This will be visible when you are logged in.

 

IMPORTANT! Your Strava settings!

When you are completing your training and challenge miles, ensure Strava is set to 'Everyone' so your miles will show on your online fundraising page for all to see.

 

For all training or non-challenge walks set Strava to 'private' if you would prefer it not to appear on your online fundraising page.

Proof of completing the Playful April Challenge

Is there a deadline for giving in my proof of completion?

Yes. This date is the 3rd May 2021. We will send you an email to remind you a few days before the deadline to send in your proof of completion by uploading a picture x 3 of your distance and time in the final week by using this form. We need to receive this on time to be able to send you your medal.

 

What will happen if I don’t get my proof of completion to you in time?

We will send you an email to remind you a few days before the deadline to send in your proof of completion. If we do not receive this in time we will be unable to send you your medal.
