When & Where

For National Walking Month, we're celebrating walking champions in our portrait photography campaign: Humans of the Walk.

Humans of the Walk is a portrait photography exhibition and campaign that captures the faces and stories of people who champion everyday walking.

We teamed up with an eight-strong student group of photographers, CollectiveF8, to celebrate the fundamental benefits that walking brings to the physical and mental health of the nation.

You can view our Humans of the Walk photography exhibition at the Museum of Edinburgh until Sunday 19 May, or on our social media channels.

Our exhibition photos are brought to life by 11 unique stories of love, strength, happiness, pain, loss, friendship and age and are all connected by one thing: walking. View the exhibition flyer here.

Humans of the Walk has been created to inspire the nation to fall in love with walking and to make time for it in daily life.

The campaign recognises the great positive impact that walking can bring to improve wellbeing, prevent ill health, build communities and create a happier, healthier, greener Scotland.

Get involved!

We want you to share your portrait images and everyday walking stories of yourself, your friends or family.

Everyday walking refers to walking that’s regular, easy and local that can be part of daily routines and family life. It’s walking that's relevant and accessible to us all.

For your chance to win a Nikon B500 Coolpix camera, enter our competition by posting a portrait photo on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #HumansOfTheWalk.

The competition runs until 31 May 2019. You can enter as many times as you like. The winner will be chosen on Monday, 3 June 2019. Read the full Terms & Conditions here.

Good luck and thanks for celebrating National Walking Month with us!
