If you've been dying to get moving for the longest time, there's no better time to do so than now.
Walk your heart out
The Skechers Friendship Walk 2021 Online Edition is back for a friendly and fun experience.
Organised by sports and lifestyle brand Skechers for the fourth year running, you can expect the same fun and rewards from the previous years.
This year’s Friendship Walk will be held from 30 July to 19 September 2021, during which participants can accumulate steps on their fitness tracker or device to reach different step goals across the two-week period within the event period.
That's a good way to stay active even as we are staying home more often these days, if you ask us.
First held in Malaysia in 2017, the Skechers Friendship Walk was transformed into an online Walk format last year, where 10,000 participants joined in to track their walk distance in the span of the one-month event.
Many also posted moments of their walk with friends and family, exploring their neighbourhood or even scenic and nature trails around Malaysia.
As such, Ms Zann Lee, Vice President of Skechers Southeast Asia, said they've decided to stick with the virtual format for this year's Friendship Walk due to the success of the previous edition.
"The virtual format we have adopted since last year has allowed more flexibility, as participants can join with their friends and family even though they may be physically apart. We look forward to creating a memorable experience for participants to keep active and spend precious time with their loved ones," she said in a statement.
Lotsa prizes to be won
For your blood, sweat and tears, Skechers wants to reward you with some exciting prizes.
As part of the event, there will be attractive Skechers rewards up for grabs, with all participants receiving an exclusive e-voucher upon the free entry sign-up for 20 per cent off on regular priced shoes, bags and apparel, while participants who sign up with the Premium Pack purchase will receive an e-voucher for 30 per cent off on regular priced shoes, bags and apparel.
By attaining the step count in one of the four categories, participants will enjoy a 30 per cent off on GOwalk 6 footwear, Skechers’ signature walking shoe series, and 40 per cent off if they had signed-up with the Premium Pack.
With the first category beginning at 5,000 steps (358 steps/day), all casual runners and walking enthusiasts will be able to take part, even if it’s just a short daily stroll around your community. To enhance your walk experience, participants can choose to add-on Skechers Friendship Walk merchandise, comprising an event medal and event T-shirt.
Once participants successfully submit their results and are signed up with the Premium Pack, the grand prize winner will be randomly picked and awarded with a year's worth of Skechers shoes. In addition, participants are able to stand a chance to win a pair of Skechers GOwalk 6 footwear.
Throughout the event period, participants are encouraged to participate in the photo contest published by HeyJom on Facebook. Participants will need to submit their photo during their walk in the comments section and one winner will be randomly selected after the event.
