Rohan has been helping people enjoy the great outdoors since 1972, whatever the weather. Founded in the Yorkshire Dales, we know a thing or two about keeping warm and dry (and have the right kit for a 1,000+ mile challenge!)
It’s not just about our products and how they complement #walk1000miles though – this is a campaign that we wholeheartedly support. The physical and mental benefits of walking are clear, and the community that has been created to provide a supportive environment for all of us who need a bit of extra encouragement to get out more, is something to be very proud of.
We are delighted to be joining it for 2019.
Scott Longstaff Managing Director, Rohan
At Country Walking magazine, we're thrilled to be partnering with Rohan this year to bring our #walk1000miles challenge to more people than ever. It's free, fun and flexible and people have reported experiencing all kinds of wonderful benefits to their health and happiness. Most of all, they tell us they cherish the support and company they get from other challengers in the #walk1000miles Facebook group. Famed for its warm welcome, the community is now over 30,000 strong, and you don't have to worry about fitting in. This group isn't about conforming to any template of behaviour except mutual respect and encouragement, and the shared joy in better days through walking. It really is the friendliest place on the internet – come and see. Join our community.

Team Shipley walk for Thrombosis UK
As part of the #walk1000miles challenge, Rohan customers Mr and Mrs Shipley will be embarking on a momentous journey this year to raise money for @ThrombosisUK, in memory of their daughter. They’ll be covering 3,861 miles over 245 days along the beautiful UK coastline.
We’re delighted to be supporting the pair on their charity walk and will be cheering them on every step of the way. They have both been kitted out head to toe, so they’ll be able to focus on their inspiring challenge, whatever the weather.
Back in December, Rohan Milton Keynes store manager Simon shared his expert knowledge on which garments he would recommend for the Team Shipley walk, using Rohan’s suggested layering system.
“We can’t wait to try out the gear and put it to the test. We’ll be experiencing all weathers so we think our haul ticks all of the boxes; protective, lightweight, packable, versatile and easycare. We are extremely grateful for all your help and support Rohan!” – Mr and Mrs Shipley.
