Once you’ve chosen your charity walk and registered it, it’s time to start training and getting your fundraising efforts underway.
One of the main differences between a walk and a trek is that the latter tends to require a lot more effort and endurance. Treks usually cover much tougher terrain and take longer to complete.
For example, treks involve many more hurdles, heights and difficult landscapes. This is one of the main reasons why it is crucial that you take your training regime seriously.
Whether you’re taking part in a low-key charity walk that requires moderate fitness levels or you are about to embark on the trekking challenge of a lifetime, it’s important that you build up your endurance and fitness levels before the walk.
You should base your training schedule on how long you are going to be walking for. For example, if you are taking part in a one mile charity walk, you will need to walk comfortably for 15 to 20 minutes, whereas if you are entering a 10km walk, you will need to be able to walk for 75 to 90 minutes.
Obviously, if you’re planning on taking on treks such as the Overseas Trek to Petra your training schedule will be a lot more intense!
Although there are many organised charity walking events, many people also organise their own walk, either alone or with a group of people.
There’s quite a bit to consider if you decide to embark on your own charity walk, including choosing a route, implementing safety precautions, organising transportation if required, as well as the legalities of the walk.
If you are planning your own DIY charity walk, you will also be responsible for finding participants and your own marketing activities to promote it.
