How to take part

It couldn’t be easier to take part in Walk the World

Just follow these simple steps:

STEP 1

Find a walk

Check out the Walks that have already been organised to see what’s happening near you.

More are being added all the time but if you can't find a walk nearby, or are interested in organising one, contact the Walk the World team.  

Homeworker? Or missing a local walk because you'll be on holiday? Everyone can take part in Walk the World! Here's how

Clients and business partners are also welcome to join walks; just ask them to register first.

Not able to walk far? There are lots of ways to get involved beyond walking, such as volunteering on the day of a walk and fundraising for charity. Just speak to your walk organiser or contact the Walk the World team to find out more.

STEP 2

Register

Everyone taking part in Walk the World 2020 must register first - just click 'Register Now' on your walk page and fill in the short form.

Register for your walk to ensure there's a t-shirt for you (if you need one), to help your office come top of the league tables and to let the walk organiser know how many people to expect. We also need everyone to register so the team can track how many people are taking part, see how much fundraising we've collected and to ensure everyone is covered for insurance. 

STEP 3

Donate

Walk the World aims to raise as much money as possible for local charities, which is why everyone is encouraged to make a donation and get fundraising!

As soon as you start fundraising, Informa will add £15/$20 to your total!

Check out individual walk pages for more information about the charity partners of each walk.

STEP 4

Fundraise

After registering for a walk and making a donation, you're all set to Walk the World.

But it doesn’t stop there. Why not fundraise to raise even more money for your local charity? 

Anyone who fundraises at least £150/US$200 (or local amount communicated) can take an extra day off work before the end of the year!

From bake sales to BBQs, auctions to arm wrestling, anything goes!

Visit the Fundraising section for more information.

STEP 5 

Walk the World!

Whether taking a gentle stroll or walking a marathon for Walk the World, you will make a huge difference to local causes while having fun with colleagues along the way. 

The Walk the World team will keep everyone updated with how far we are all walking and how much money is being raised, but we also want to see and hear from colleagues. For the chance to win bonus donations to your local charity, post stories and photos during and after your walk on Portal using #informawtw.
