Training plans

When you enter a Walk the Walk challenge, we want to make sure you have everything you need from information on diet, advice on footwear, walking technique and our unique Training Plans that will help you to get walking fit to meet your goal!

Plans

These plans have been created by our founder Nina who has had years of experience and success in helping more than 450,000 walkers train for our challenges and cross the Finish Line, Distances from5K  to 10 miles on our Camino 100, and everything in between. From the many comments we receive, we would say that they are exactly what you need to help you attain the level of fitness you need to reach your chosen goal.

When should I start training?

The plans linked below give just a 5 week taster, and will also allow you to start walking now ahead of the official start of the full 12 week plan.

The full plan is 12 weeks in length and is an ideal starting point for those who feel that they are of normal fitness levels. However, if you are just starting a fitness programme, we would suggest adding on a few weeks beforehand. Take a look at some Marathon Training Tips here.

A guide...

Training for The MoonWalk London officially begins in mid-February and covers a 12 week plan, unless you are doing Over the Moon in which case it is 16 weeks. But really we advise that you don’t wait and that you really will benefit from being active and walking some distance every day. Particularly if you have never done anything like this before, and if you are unfit at this time. 

Be your own judge, feel free to do any of the weeks more than once before moving on, repeating the 5 weeks, or even increasing the distances yourself as your fitness develops. There are 3 plans currently, the MAD2, the Half Marathon Plus and the Full Marathon. Official Training for The MoonWalk begins on the weekend of

19 /20 February 2022
