And the winner is...

In our August newsletter we launched a small competition.  We asked you to tell us your ‘Top Three Reasons for Loving iFootpath and Walking’ with the chance to win a £30 Amazon voucher. Thank you to everyone who entered and we loved reading the huge variety of reasons that people gave – walking really is all things to all people.



Our favourite entry came from Rachael A who loves iFootpath and walking because:




Reason 1 – because it’s me and my mutt Sid :)

Reason 2 – because the app lets me find great walks to train for my Coast2Coast walk for the British Heart Foundation

Reason 3 – because walking is good for your health and state of mind – gets rid of my stress!


We loved the accompanying photo of Sid – what a gorgeous mutt! Congratulations and we’re pleased to see the prize going to such a good cause. The £30 prize has been donated to Rachael's Just Giving page for the British Heart Foundation.



We also wanted to give mention to another few entries that caught our attention. The most touching entries came from a handful of people who named us, the iFootpath team (Claire, Richard and Bobbie) as their favourite three things. That’s really very kind of you! We were also pleased to see the number of people who enjoy the iFootpath walks with their dogs, Bobbie is thrilled that your four-legged friends approve of her carefully selected walks.


The most amusing entry came via a comment left on one of our walking guides, from a walker who will remain nameless! He had used the walk as an excuse to escape from his wife's ‘tinnitus-inducing Aunt’ who had come to visit. He says of the walk, ‘the areas around the locks had seats so I spent a while at each, chatting to the passing boat traffic; managing to eke out my period of AWOL from the Aunt to almost 4 hours. Thanks again.’ We’re pleased to have been of service!!

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
