Walk 1200km in a year
Complete in 365 days

Walk1200km isn't just a challenge; it's a year-long commitment to embrace the simplicity and benefits of walking. Covering 1200 kilometers is an experience that invites you to slow down, destress, and prioritize your well-being in a world that's constantly on the move. The Walk1200km challenge was originally presented by Wilderness Magazine, and is now embraced by a community of over 4,500 walkers annually.

This challenge is about more than just the goal; it's a shift towards an active lifestyle. It's a chance to join a supportive community around exercise, fostering habits that promote self-care and setting a tangible goal that encourages consistent physical activity.

As you step into this journey, you'll join a community, each finding their unique motivation. From those recovering from setbacks to those seeking the benefits of regular exercise, Walk1200km offers a platform for everyone to stride towards better health.

Beyond the physical benefits, this challenge is an exploration of new paths, a chance to revel in the outdoors, and an opportunity to discover the joy in taking ownership of your health. Whether walking through city streets or exploring scenic trails, find fulfillment in the exercise itself.

For some, this challenge reinforces their commitment to exercise routines; for others, it's a transformative journey that reshapes their relationship with physical activity. Yet, for all, it instills a newfound energy, a sense of accomplishment, and a lasting satisfaction derived from prioritizing their health through 1200 kilometers of walking.
