Welcome to a great challenge that will keep you motivated, engaged and focused for the rest of the year. The Wales Coast Path is 870 Miles in length, and the aim of this Virtual Challenge is to travel on foot as far along the coastline as you can, starting from the border at Chester, and taking you interactively along the North Wales coast, Isle of Anglesey, the Lleyn Peninsula, the huge expanse of Cardigan Bay to Pembrokeshire, and the South Walian stretch including the beauty of Gower, to finish at Chepstow.

Along the way, you'll use the Virtual Submission platform provided by Lets Do This - which makes distance submission, and tracking of your progress really easy, as you can keep a gallery of your progress and interact with other participants on this challenge!

Make sure to record your runs using your favourite run tracking app or GPS watch and upload them as you go - along with a selfie - back at the Let's Do This finish line. Each run will be added to your final distance total.

We'll give you milestones to go for, as you tick off the Coastal Towns and landmarks along the route - and whether you are confident of going all the way, or just want to use it as a way to get you moving and go as far as possible, it'd be fantastic to have you involved.

Registration categories.

There are two registration categories.

- £35 standard entry; or

- £180 standard entry plus OutFit Membership & Coaching for the rest of the year.

This will involve access to a range of weekly live, and hundreds of archived online sessions and remote coaching by me, Joe Cooper - to take you through your challenge. Distance challenges are fantastic in so many ways, but there is always the risk of the body breaking down, and having someone advising on things like strength, flexibility and training load can really help you when it comes to performance and staying injury free!

Prizes and giveaways

- Upon completion, you'll get a great bespoke medal to mark your achievement, as well as a personal progress certificate and there'll be prizes and goodies available from our friends at Mountain Fuel Nutrition, and Cotswold Outdoor.

Make the second half of 2020 a productive one, and take on this great distance challenge with us. Good Luck!
