During the circuit breaker when shops were closed, I saw more people taking walks than usual. Well, can’t blame anyone… It was an excuse to go out and take a breather. But now that Singapore has moved on to phase two with the economy slowly opening, there seems to be a drop in the number of people exercising at my neighbourhood park.
Did you notice the trend? Or are you one of them? Need some motivation to head back clocking your daily steps? If yes, the Skechers Friendship Walk 2020 would be a great motivator to get you back in the game. Read on for more details!

#2: RACE CATEGORIES
There will be three race categories – 3km, 5km, and 10km. So that’s about 4,000, 6,000, and 13,000 steps respectively. You can either run the distance or walk to clock the steps.
