Training Calendar

Your training schedule will depend on the distance you are intending to attempt in Nijmegen, your general levels of fitness and your previous walking experience. However, a simple schedule such as below can be used as a guide. Specifically, you should have attempted at least one multi-day event (i.e. walking two consecutive days of similar distance).

The following is a schedule we would suggest you try and follow:

Herman Boston runs a series of training walks every year between January and the event in July. They are geared towards those intending to participate at 40km per day (particularly aimed at our youth element) and are based around the Swindon area. However, anyone may come along.
