When you enter one of our challenges, we will send you a comprehensive training booklet. This covers everything from diet, tips on footwear, how to warm up and also our training plans.

These plans have been put together by Nina who has had years of experience and has succeeded in helping over 300,000 walkers train for our challenges and cross the Finish Line - from 5K distances to the '4 marathons in 4 days' at the Nijmegen Marches and everything in between! So we would say that they are exactly what you need to help you attain the level of fitness you need to reach your chosen goal.

When should I start training?

The plans linked below give just a taster of what you should be doing now and will also allow you to start training ahead of receiving your Training Guide!

The full plan is 12 weeks in length and is an ideal starting point for those who feel that they are of normal fitness levels. However, if you are just starting a fitness programme, we would suggest adding on a few weeks beforehand.

A guide

Training for The MoonWalk London should start for a normally fit person on the 17th February. If you are taking part in the Full Marathon and you are unfit, then start a few weeks before then following the starting weeks for the half marathon plan, to help you on your way. If you are doing the half marathon then repeat the first few weeks of the half marathon training plan

Training for The MoonWalk Edinburgh should start for a normally fit person at the start of March. If you are taking part in the Full Marathon and you are unfit, then start a few weeks before then following the starting weeks for the half marathon plan, to help you on your way. If you are doing the half marathon then repeat the first few weeks of the half marathon training plan
