Kingston University has three new walking challenges for the new academic year.
Registration and photos to be sent to Jo Heath, Sports Development Manager at J.Heath@kingston.ac.uk
Plogging is a Swedish fitness craze that combines exercise and eco-friendly activity. The idea is simple: go out for a walk, jog or run and pick up any plastic you find on your route.
For four weeks, starting on 12 October 2020, grab yourself a pair of gloves and a bin liner and go out plogging as many times as you can. (Following Covid guidelines for PPE and social distancing at all times)
Simply register your interest with the Sport and Active Lifestyle Team to get all the details.

Do you ever read the word 'challenge' and think that's just not for me? Why not change your mindset, maybe for the first time, and simply give it a go?
You don't have to be great to start but you do need to start to be great. Starting on 9 November 2020, make a pledge to yourself to start walking wherever you can instead of using public transport or driving. Count and log your steps on the free step counting app called the 'StepsApp Pedometer'.
Clock up your steps for five weeks by walking all, or part, of your journey to university, walking between sites, taking the stairs, going for long walks in your free time or even building up to a jog or run if you can. Maybe even increase your step count by doing an online dance class or sports activity such as tennis.
Will you be the greatest walker, clocking up the most steps and claiming the prize of a Fitbit (worth £75) and £50 voucher? Even if you are not the greatest we can guarantee you'll feel great for taking up this challenge. Make your pledge with friends and family and keep each other motivated to keep going for five weeks until 13 December 2020.
To take up the challenge, register your pledge with the Sport and Active Lifestyle Team, and we will support and encourage you to keep going over the five weeks.
