Get ready for WalkWest 2019

Get in Shape

f you are taking part in one of the running categories, and are a beginner, we suggest you start a training program at least two months before the event. For our more experienced runners, you will probably need less preparation. See our example below.

Jogging, walking, cycling and swimming are all good preparation.

If you have existing health problems, we suggest you talk to your doctor before taking part.

Get Kitted Out

Be sure to wear comfortable footwear on the day, suitable for walking on footpaths.

We recommend comfortable active wear as the preferred attire.
