Britain on Foot, the initiative organized by the Outdoor Industries Association (OIA) to motivate Brits to participate in activities outdoors, received the support of the country's House of Lords, the upper chamber of the country's parliament, last week. In a debate on the legacy of the 2012 London Olympic Games, a big topic was the future support not just of top athletes, but of increasing outdoor activities to keep Brits fit. Lord Haworth, who also acts as secretary of the All-Party Mountaineering Group, praised OIA's commitment to the Britain on Foot campaign, which is set to be launched next spring. Haworth also described the efforts that have already been made to make Britons, notably Londoners, walk: In the country's capital, a circular walk is being prepared that is partially new and that partly uses existing trails throughout the green recreational areas of London. Once the walk is ready it should be some 300 kilometers long with 34-35 stages of 9-10 kilometers. The new project – when completed – will be promoted through the internet and possibly through a smartphone app.
