Is this challenge for me?

The MoonWalk Iceland celebrates its 7th year in 2017; it takes place at night... but will be light as it's during the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. Walking in this spectacular wilderness is about self motivation, determination and drive, as your biggest supporter is the wildlife!

It is ideal for anybody that has taken on London or Scotland and now wants the next MoonWalk challenge. All our Walkers will need to be at least 18 years old on the day of the challenge and should aim for a sustained walking pace of 14-minute miles, with a maximum finishing time of 10 hours, and as always, it is open to girls and guys!


Thanks to you all, walkers and Walk the Walk staff for making my first Moonwalk such an amazing experience.- Sue
