What do you plan on achieving during your time in isolation?
Why not climb Mount Everest or take on the Three Peaks? How about hiking Mont Blanc or trekking to Machu Picchu? Now you can with Noah's Ark... virtually, of course!
Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice is facing a fight for its future. Help us to continue our care for seriously unwell babies, children and their families by taking on this unique challenge. Support Noah's Ark with your own journey by taking part in our Step The Globe challenge.
So why not make the most of your time in isolation? Choose your goal. Challenge yourself. Support Noah's Ark.
To succeed in the Noah’s Ark Step The Globe challenge, you must walk the distance it would take to complete a trek to the destination of your choice. Your steps can be completed out and about on your daily exercise, climbing the stairs indoors, walking around your garden or a combination of your choosing. The challenge must be completed in 12 weeks, making it perfect for isolation. All you need to get started is your preferred mobile fitness app, a website such as Strava or a wearable fitness tracker.
If you have a particular trek in mind that you would like to virtually complete, take a look online and see how many miles the trek will take. The average number of steps it takes a person to walk a mile is 2,250 steps. So, in order to get to your Step The Globe target you will need to multiply the number of miles of your chosen trek by 2,250. If you don't have a trek in mind, take a look at some of our suggestions below.
Peru's Inca Trail to Machu Picchu – 26 miles = 60,750 steps
Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro – 11 miles = 28,000 steps
Europe's Mont Blanc – 105 miles = 262,500 steps
Nepal's Everest Base Camp Trek – 81 miles = 182,250 steps
UK's Three Peaks Trek – 23 miles = 51,750 steps
Why not do the challenge as a family or group of friends? All combining your daily step count to eventually reach the total steps number for your chosen trek. How far away does your furthest friend live? You could virtually walk to them or they could meet you half way.
