ViewRanger Challenges

We want to get the world walking with our #walk2016 challenge - and you can be part of it! Pledge to complete 1,000, 500 or 250 miles using ViewRanger and walk your way through 2016.

Whichever challenge you sign up for, you'll find tons of likeminded walkers taking it with you, all with the simple goal of completing it by 31st December 2016.

How it works

Once signed up, just download and use the ViewRanger app to find and follow routes near you, or track your own routes as you go. Each mile you follow or track from the 1st January will be counted towards your #walk2016 total, and you can view a running total of your completed miles at my.viewranger.com.

Your walking, hiking and walking with wheels tracks completed between 1st January and 31st December 2016 will be counted towards your total, including any completed before you signed up to #walk2016. If you forget to stop recording your track it might not be counted, but you can clip it to remove any unwanted recording at my.viewranger.com. When you've finished recording a new track, make sure you upload/sync it in-app so it's counted! Similar tracks recorded on multiple devices at the same time will only be counted once

Hear it from someone who's done it!

We were partly inspired to create this challenge by ViewRanger user Nigel Ayers, who set himself the challenge to #walk1000miles in 2015 using ViewRanger to track and share his routes. We caught up with him just before he finished to find out what motivated him and what he enjoyed most about it - read our Q&A with him here.
