It's Summer time and we're feeling good... time for our Virtual SunWalk Festival... this is one that you won't want to miss... even if you're on holiday... no problem... just don't forget to pack Walk the Walk with you. We will have a fun activity every day and there’s a challenge for all!

Get ready to pull out your tie-dyes and download your DIY Festival kit, we have bunting, delicious ice lolly and smoothie recipes to make, snacks to create, games to play and more! At the end of it all, a Congratulations Certificate to download and a fabulous medal for all finishers... what's not to love!

Join in the fun, it's a real family affair and sign up to walk a 5k, 10k, Half Marathon (13.1 miles, 21k), all these distances must be completed in one go! For those that want that extra bite... choose the 100k challenge... this can be completed in one pop, but if you think this is too daunting, it can be achieved in multiple walks spread over the week! 

All distances to be completed between 31 July - 8 August 2021! 

Are your family and friends thinking different distances?... Why not all come together and walk the last 5k or 10k miles as a team!

Every mile you walk is a healthy mile for you and one that will help those living with cancer!

Festival Fundraising tips

 

Use your fundraising page to say why you’re taking part in the Festival and raising funds for Walk the Walk. Your story can really make a difference and hopefully encourage your supporters to dig deep!

 

Get your friends and family to sponsor your Festival playlist! An upbeat song can soon get you powering along... let’s hope you'll be 'Walking on Sunshine!'

 

Who doesn’t love a smoothie? Use your favourite smoothie recipes to create refreshing drinks to tempt your family and friends... for a donation of course! Or use the smoothie recipes created especially for the SunWalk Festival! Set up a stall in your garden or in front of your house for maximum impact!

 

Keep your neighbourhood beautiful by watering your neighbours’ gardens while they’re away. No-one wants to come home to drooping plants when they’ve spent a lot of time and effort making their gardens bloom... so watch your kind offer bear lots of cash fruit!

 

With many people still working from home, parents are struggling to keep the children occupied while they work. Take the children off their hands with some Festival activities to keep them busy* and out of Mum and Dad’s hair. A donation to your page will be a great exchange! See some fun ideas below:

 

  • A Garden Treasure or Scavenger Hunt
  • Hopscotch
  • Skipping games
  • Hide and Seek
  • Simon Says
  • Musical Statues
  • Garden Cricket
  • Jacks
  • Marbles

 

* remember your social distancing guidelines.

How will the miles be tracked?

Through Strava...

Strava is a free app to download, that uses GPS to record your distance walked... this can be connected to your online fundraising page. To check if you are logged in click on the three lines in the top right-hand corner. If you are not logged in then you can log in with your email and order number.

 

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! Strava settings...

 

When you are completing your challenge miles, ensure Strava is set to 'Everyone' under activities so we can track your miles to show you have achieved your goal! 

This needs to be done before saving your walk. Please also ensure that the activity is set to ‘Walk’ rather than a ‘Run’ or  ‘Hike’. (It will accept run and walk as a setting, as some walkers have it set as run, even tho walking for the reporting data).

 

Training walks will not be automatically be posted to your page but why not keep your supporters updated by uploading pics, mileage and sharing the fun you have been up to on your walks.

 

What if I can't or do not want to use Strava or want to use another device to track my distance?

 

If you are using a different measuring device please take a picture or a screenshot of your activity. Whilst you are logged into your fundraising page you can then add your walk as a manual activity to your page and add this photo to each activity... this must be done during the event week. Click here for instructions for mobile upload or computer upload.

 

Alternatively, you can upload your distance photo here (the form will be available nearer the time)This must be received by Wednesday 11th August 2021.

 

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