It’s a personal challenge for each participant and their dog, to walk 1000 miles over the course of the year. It’s not a race or competition. It’s about taking part, being part of a dog walking community, and promoting positive physical and mental wellbeing.
There are various ways of tracking your miles with devices such as FitBit, Garmin, StepApp, Health App and more. As a participant all you have to do is track your miles each month.
To meet the challenge, targets have been set each week and each month, to keep you on track.
You can register to take part in the challenge online on the dedicated website :
You can also join the Private Facebook group – #NIDogs1000 for walk ideas and to see who else is participating. There are about 100 registered for 2020.
