National Walking Day

National Walking Day

This year, as part of European Week of Sport which is 22nd-30th of September 2018, in partnership with Sport Ireland, Healthy Ireland and Local Sports Partnerships, Get Ireland Walking is launching a National Walking Day. This national event will take place on the final day of European Week of Sport, the 30th of September. The aim of this event is to celebrate the efforts of community walking volunteers and to promote the activity of walking at a local level in communities across Ireland. Get Ireland Walking invites everyone, whether you are in a walking group or not, to participate in our National Community Walking Day. To be in with a chance of winning a fantastic prize, register your walking group for the National Walking Day here and post a 20-30 second video of your walk to your Facebook or Twitter page, tagging Get Ireland Walking and using the hashtag (#NWD2018). The walking leaders who lead the most creative and colourful walks will receive one out of twenty prize packs. Gather a group for a fun, feel-good walk and reap the benefits of walking this National Walking Day!
