What you need to bring
Bring the following items with you for the walk:
Walker registration form
Health and Safety during the walk
Qualified, first-aid trained walk leaders lead all walks. They adjust the pace of each walk to make sure nobody gets left behind.
The most important thing is that you start slowly and build up gradually. You don’t need to try to compete with others when walking. Your aim is to steadily improve, rather than to walk farther or faster than anyone else.
You should try to walk at a brisk pace. This means that you breathe a little faster, feel warmer and have a slightly faster heart beat. It doesn’t need to be hard and you should still be able to talk.
Listen to your body when you walk. If you feel dizzy, or develop pain or nausea, inform a walk leader about your condition.
