Caravanners urged to get out walking

Posted by Linda Davidson

Caravan water heater owners who have a caravan holiday planned have been urged to put on their walking boots and take a walk in the countryside to keep fit.

Ramblers, the UK's walking charity, is launching My Get Walking, an online resource which allows walking enthusiasts to plan walks, set goals and monitor their own progress.

According to Ramblers, introducing walking into part of a regular routine can help people become healthier and happier.

My Get Walking follows in the successful footsteps of the Ramblers pioneering, lottery funded Get Walking Keep Walking project, which helped over 86,000 people improve their health.

Chris Leigh, Get Walking Keep Walking project manager, said: "We've developed a programme that not only gets people to start walking but crucially manages to keep them walking, helping to improve their physical and mental health."

Maria Castellina, a spokesperson for Ramblers, recently revealed that walking just one mile can burn around 100 calories.
