Walk to Work

Now in its 17th year, National Walk to Work Day, on Friday 14 November 2014, is an annual event which helps employers and employees to build regular walking into their daily routine.

 

It's easy:

  • If you can't walk all the way, use public transport and get off the bus, train, tram or ferry a few stops earlier and walk the rest of the way to work.
  • If you need to drive, try to leave the car at least a kilometre from your destination and walk the rest of the way.
  • Take a half-hour walk at lunchtime.
  • Where possible use the stairs rather than escalators or the lift.
  • If you sit a lot at work, remember get up and walk around at least once every hour. Go and grab a piece of fruit or a drink of water, or get up to talk to a colleague instead of sending an email.
