Get Ireland Walking is launching its first App as part of the “Keep Well” campaign to support people in a changing landscape and make walking supports and events more accessible digitally.
The App features:
1. 21 Day Walking Challenge
We're challenging you to walk at least once a day for 21 days in a row and we promise you that if you complete the challenge, you'll have a walking habit to be proud of by 2021.
Aim to walk for at least 30 minutes each day. You don't have to do it all at once you can build up to 30 minutes or more by being active for at least 10 minutes in the early days. Just keep increasing the length of your walk and watch the minutes add up.
By using the free app you will keep a record of your walking every day. By tracking how long or how far you walked, you'll see proof of your improvements and receive tips and encouragements along the challenge! This is a great motivation to keep going!
