The Trailwalker Team are here to help your team every step of the way, with all the materials you'll need for training and fundraising.

All of the 2014 guides are still available for your team to download and we'll be adding the 2015 versions as the event gets closer.

Tips from teams

Train, train and train. Look at the route in detail and try, if you can, to get out onto the Downs and walk as much of the route as possible before the event.

     - Francesca, The Walking Deads

Do at least one 60km group training session, partly at night, at least one month before. This distance is long enough to give you a taste of what you may experience, while giving you enough recovery time to try and resolve those problems before the event.

     - Charlie, Adder Ladder

Start your fundraising early - it gets you support from your friends and you don't have to worry about sorting it all out after the event.

     - Kayleigh, Team Gangnam

Prepare for blisters! Really put your socks and footwear through the mill to see if they rub at all because even if they feel OK in shorter training sessions, it might not feel the same after 8 hours walking!

     - Neil, Eager Eagles

Train together with your team as often as possible. We weren't able to get many walks in together and there were two distinct speed factions in our team.

     - Trailwalker Team, 2013

Invest in a decent pair of walking boots/shoes and have them fitted correctly.

     - Jean, Jerry and the Pacemakers
