You’re not going to believe this... but you can walk 1000 miles in 2021 – no matter how unfit you are or impossible that sounds. 72% of participants say they suffer fewer minor ailments; 74% that they feel more body-confident; 92% that they’re far more optimistic for their long-term health as a result, 96% that it has significantly changed their life for the better, 99.6% that it’s suitable for all levels of fitness. Your Rohan kit is more than up for this epic challenge. You don’t have to be a superhero to do this (you just have to keep at it) but you’ll feel like one by the end. And you’ll discover that the once gigantic-seeming number is perhaps the smallest wonder of your achievement. The journey starts at your door. The destination is a bigger world and a brighter, happier, healthier you.

“I am a huge advocate of getting outdoors, whatever the weather (especially as I have two very active Border Terriers – Scrappy Nelson and Duncan Pickles who need lots of walks!) I’m also very fortunate to travel the length of the country for work, enjoying our 50+ store locations. It’s safe to say, I clock up my own walking miles regularly!

Rohan clothing really does complement Country Walking’s #Walk1000Miles campaign. If you’re heading out on a walk, you need to be confident that what you’re wearing will keep you warm and dry.

We’ve been designing, innovating and creating technical outdoor clothing since 1972, clothing that is worn by many people from many walks of life; photographers, hillwalkers, ramblers, globetrotters, city breakers, mountain hikers and rescuers, dog walkers, filmmakers, weekend wanderers… Walk 1000 Milers.

The physical and mental benefits of going on a good walk are clear, and the community that has formed from this initiative is pretty special. That’s why we’re delighted to be joining Walk 1000 Miles once again for 2020 as the official apparel partner. Happy walking!”
