Top six preparation tips for the World Aid Walk

  • Wear comfortable shoes, it’s a long walk and wearing a pair of unsuitable shoes will cause you many problems!
  • Bring a small first aid kit – plasters and suncream etc.
  • Dress appropriately for both the weather and the event. If it’s raining make sure you bring a waterproof and if it’s sunny make sure you are suitably prepared.
  • Food and Drink. While water will be available at checkpoints, make sure you bring enough food and drink for your personal requirements.
  • The route. Know the route and become familiar with it before you set off on the walk. You’ll find a route map in your information pack.
  • Be safe and sensible. There will be marshals at a number of stops and crossings during the walk; however you still need to be aware of what’s happening around you and the traffic on the roads. We discourage running as this event is a walk.

All participants in the Walk take part at their own risk and the organisers and committee of the World Aid Walk accept no responsibility for personal accidents. Care will be taken by the organisers to try to ensure the safety of walkers. Walkers hereby indemnify the organisers from and against any liability arising from their participation in the Walk.
