Scottish Canals are challenging you to virtually walk the distance of one or all of their canals during lockdown!

Canal Challenge

About Canal Challenge

We’re challenging you to keep active at home over the coming weeks with the Canal Challenge!

Over the course of the next few weeks we welcome you to join us in virtually walking the distance of Scotland’s canals at home, in your garden, or on your daily walk.

Please follow government instruction and social distancing rules when undertaking these activities.

Why not start small with something like the Monkland Canal, and before you know it you might be stepping your way towards the 60 miles of the Caledonian Canal!

Canals:
Monkland Canal – 2 miles – 4,000 steps

Crinan Canal – 9 miles – 18,000 steps

Union Canal – 31 miles – 62,000 steps

Forth & Clyde Canal – 38 miles – 76,000 steps

Caledonian Canal – 60 miles – 120,000 steps

Will you walk the length of all Scotland’s canals combined?

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Canal Challenge are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
