Step In ‘N’ Win January Walking Challenge

As we Step In to 2021 we have another walking challenge for the month of January!!

With Level 5 lockdown restrictions in place for the whole month, it is more important than ever to keep yourself physically and mentally active, so join in our free 50km January Walking Challenge. During these dark months, (though the stretch in the evenings will be gradually noticeable in January!) it is important to get some fresh air, stretch the legs and keep in shape for the tougher challenges coming in the brighter and warmer months of 2021!!

Plenty of small walks is the target for this month where 30 minutes of fresh can do the world of wonders and before you know it you will have reached the 50km target.

Please keep in mind the current restrictions which allow residents from two households to meet outside for exercise within 5km of their home.

For all those who complete our January challenge we will have a draw so you can WIN some Siul Eile goodies!!

What you need to do is:

If you haven’t walked with Siul Eile before, register for free at <a href=””></a>

Download the Strava App and use this to record your walking activities. The app is very simple to use. Press record when you start walking and stop at the end. Then press finish to confirm you are finished and save.  You also have the option of adding some photos of your trek before you save it, we saw a fabulous variety of photos throughout May with hidden gems, wildlife, nature and panoramic views.

Once you have downloaded the app, join our club Siul Eile Strava Club

To find the club you might have to search via the explore button at the bottom of your page. If you can’t find Siul Eile immediately search in  the clubs section: Select Siul Eile for club name, Tipperary for Location, in the next tab select Other and finally Club Type select All. Any activity you then do will be attributed to the Siul Eile Strava club.  Every km counts so please record all walks.
