I am running this club purely for my (and hopefully your) enjoyment. It is free to join, and there are no dues, commitments, or meetings. When you join, you will get a unique Member Number which gives you a way to enter and track all the miles/kilometers you've walked and the minutes you've spent walking those miles/kilometers. Soon it will give you a way to monitor your walks over the past month and see how your total miles/kilometers and minutes compare to other walkers in your age group, city, state, and country. If you want to join as a team, it will keep track of your walks as a team and let you compete against other teams.
So, what are the rules for this club? There is only one important one: be honest in the distance that you report. Sure it looks nice to be at the top of the Top Walkers chart, but if you haven't put in the distance, what have you really achieved? There are no rules otherwise. Any kind of walking, whether on a treadmill or outdoors, is fine. The database allows you to keep your total distance accurate to a tenth of a mile, but you can use a rough estimate for each of your walks, too. The main goal is to get you on your feet and racking up those miles/kilometers!
This site exists only for fun. I am not in it to make money or to sell personal information about others to marketing companies. Any information you send me will be kept strictly confidential and will not be used for anything outside of this club. I just want to motivate myself and others to get off our tv-watching and web-surfing butts and do some walking! And just maybe, if we keep at it long enough, we can Walk Around the World!
