When you start looking it's amazing how much walking activity is happening - the difficulty sometimes is simply finding out about it.

With one year to go until the Olympic Flame arrives in the UK, the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) are looking for torch bearers to carry it on an inspirational 8,000 mile journey around the UK.
Within a week of launching groups and challenges there are more than 25 groups set up on the site. Most groups have signed up to at least one challenge, and one group has already completed their first challenge winning them a gold star, and the 'first group to complete a challenge' award - congratulations to the Kielder Nordic Walkers !
