We’d love your help in building the walks library to cover more countryside rambles, town trails and riverside strolls across the UK – all of your favourite walks. So as an incentive, for the next 1,000 miles of published walks on iFootpath we’re giving away £10 iTunes or Amazon vouchers for every customer that supplies us with 10 miles of walks for publication (minimum standard of content and other terms apply – see below). This could be a single 10 mile walk, or several walks that add up to 10 miles in total. Or, if you’re feeling generous we can donate the £10 to charity on your behalf.
- Use the iFootpath Mobile App to track the route, placing waypoints to split the walk into sections
- Upload the GPX route to the website and use the editor to correct any errors
- Click ‘Convert to Walk’ and add some words to describe the walk
- Add photographs and turn-by-turn directions for each walk section
- Check you are happy with the walk using the Preview function and then set the walk to Ready - an administrator will check your walk meets the publication requirements and then release it for all the iFootpath community to enjoy
For full details of how to use the iFootpath Mobile Tracker see the iFootpath Mobile User Guide and for full instructions and tips on creating your own iFootpath walk see the Creating a Walk User Guide.
