Genre Walking: The Science Fiction and Fantasy Walkers and Joggers Club!


Genre Walking started on Twitter with Jason Sanford and Fabio Fernandes.  One of them responded to a tweet I put up about the amount of walking I’ve done since keeping track on April 8th; moments later, we had an idea:  let’s create a little group of SF/F folks who are walking, jogging, or running and track how many miles we’re doing.  Think of it like those “green on campus” movements where faculty and students try to carpool, use the bus, and walk instead of driving by themselves.

The cool thing about Genre Walking, though, is that anyone can join.  And it’s easy.  All you have to do is say “I’m in” on this blog, on my Twitter account, or with the #genrewalking hashtag on Twitter.  Then:  record your miles!  And how do you do that?  On our handy dandy Genre Walking entry form!  It’s that simple.

If you want to see how everyone is doing, you can go here.  I’ll add names to the side list as they become available.

Now get your butt out the door and start walking!

  1. ZOMG… this is TOTALLY a me-thing! Just completed the NZ Oxfam Trailwalker 100km walk in ~30 hours, with about 1,500km logged since August last year when I started keeping track.

    So… ummm… I'm in too?
