Walking The Way of Saint James is a wonderful experience for those who are able to make it. It has been closed during the Coronavirus pandemic, but is now back open.
But for those who cannot make it, The Camino de Santiago Virtual Challenge is the next best thing.
Here is how it works:
♦ You set up your own deadline (up to 78 weeks) and you can do it solo or as a team. Cross the finish line and you will receive a “finishers” medal (if you walk the physical Way, you normally have a passport stamped at various places along the way and get “finished” when you reach Santiago de Compostela.
♦ Each time you complete a distance based exercise activity such as running, walking, cycling etc you advance along the map from France to Spain.
It is a great way to stay fit during these strange times of partial shut-downs.
The catch is, it’s not free. It costs to participate (includes the medal) You can find out more and sign up here.
