Workers in the Western Isles clock up 13k miles
Bookmark and Share
Workers in the Western Isles have been donning their walking boots and boosting the amount of physical activity they do as part of the Walk at Work Step Count Challenge.

The initiative, which was launched by Scottish charity Paths For All, has seen 200 businesses and more than 4,500 people taking part across Scotland.

Walkers clocked up an impressive 13,146 miles during the challenge.

Speaking to the Stornoway Gazette, Carl Greenwood, development officer for Paths For All, said: "We are delighted with the results of the Walk at Work Step Count Challenge."

"However, it is the health benefits that walking brings to our daily lives that we are hoping to promote with this challenge," he added.

Mr Greenwood noted that one of the great things about Scotland was that there are good walking routes both in the cities and out in the countryside that people can take advantage of.

In England, one of the UK's most popular walking challenges - The Yorkshire Three Peaks - is set to get two new paths, which will improve access and help reduce erosion.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801367394-ADNFCR
