Here’s Why It’s Important

Have you been inspired to go hiking because of something you’ve discovered on 10 Mile Hike? I really hope so, because it’s easy to underestimate how much something as simple as hiking and walking can change the way we see ourselves. I know it can because it’s made such a huge difference to me. Like when I push myself to do something that makes me feel uncomfortable (solo wild camping in some local woods for example): I look back and think ‘wow that was me, I did it!’. I hope you’ve experienced that feeling too.

At first there’s a kind of disbelief, but when it finally hits you, your self-confidence and self-esteem can sky rocket. And those personal achievements, no matter how small, can give you the courage to do it in other parts of life too, because you feel mentally stronger, more resilient.

Women could do with a whole lot more of that.

But we all know that hiking and walking does more than boost our confidence and self-esteem: it’s a salve, even a salvation at times (it’s saved me that’s for sure). And then there’s the connection with nature and the environment. It’s that connection that makes us want to protect it and encourage others to protect it too.

That’s why I’d love you to help me support other women through 10 Mile Hike
