Can you walk the length of the The Old Course everyday?
(4.15 miles or approx. 8300 steps)

Walk, run, or wheel the length of the Old Course every day as an individual challenge or do it as part of a team. Want a super challenge?  Double it and walk the course twice a day. It can be done using a pedometer or smart phone to register every step you do or a measured length round the park or playground. Go for a walk at lunch time from the office or your desk if working from home. Push a buggy, a wheelchair or a zimmer,  whatever you do, ‘get off your seat and on your feet’!

Download and print off the map so you can colour the footprints in as you go.

You don’t have to register to take part just use the map and instructions however if you wish to take part in a prize draw to win The Open/ golf themed prizes please email Fiona at Active Fife (fiona.ashton-jones@fife.gov.uk)  with your email/ mobile number to be in with a chance. The draw will take place on the 31st of May . 

If you would like a printed A3 or A4 copy of the map again email with your address and size required and we will send one out in the post.

By taking part in this challenge, you will also have achieved your Daily Mile. Fife is looking to become a Daily Mile Kingdom with as many people as possible taking part.
