Walk 10 miles...earn £10

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 FootpathwithiniPhoneFramecontent 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.

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.
