We were inspired by an email from Alistair Littlejohn from team Woodland Steppers from NHS Lothian. Alistair sent us his playlist of walking related songs that he likes to listen to on his iPod when out for a stroll.

Anyway, this got us thinking. We'd like you to suggest more songs with a walking theme or just songs you like to listen to when on the move. We'll compile your suggestions and post them on the blog.

To enter, send us an email at with a note of the song that inspires you to get walking and a sentence on why you suggested it. Deadline for entries is 5pm Wednesday 22 May. Everyone who enters will be put forward for a prize draw to win one of the following:

  • 1st prize £50 Cotswold Outdoor voucher
  • 5 runners-up will each receive a £25 Cotswold Outdoor voucher
  • A further 10 runners-up will each receive a Pocket Mountains Easy Walks guidebook

Here's Alistair's playlist, which should hopefully give you some inspiration.
