To enter the competition, you need to visit the Keen website  and answer the question: Where would you go in a million steps?

The sweepstake will run from September 2nd–October 15th 2014. Winners will be chosen at random and notified before November 26th, 2014. Four winners will be chosen globally, one from each region (US, Japan, Canada and Europe).

During the sweepstake stay tuned to and Keen’s website and social media channels for essential hiking tips, can’t-miss hiking destinations and some of Keen’s European ambassador stories, that’ll be sure to inspire your next outdoors trip.

GWA’s Ed has just done some rudimentary maths, and 1 million steps depending on your stride is 450-550 miles, setting off from London that would get you to Germany!

Please note that this competition is not being run in conjunction with or associated with and to enter you must visit Keen’s own website.

  • Your Ed must have incredibly long legs. I’d go with 375 miles for someone 6ft tall… 🙂 0.6m per stride… even that’s a tad ambitious .55m is probably more realistic at best, off road. And someone around 5’6″, it will be less still…


    Great idea for a competition though…
