Its spring. The birds in the
trees are chirpy (and horny). Flower buds are peeping out of the ground. There
is so much to smell, see, hear and savour, and of course with every step you
take you are strengthening your muscles, heart and lungs as well as releasing
endorphins that lift your mood and help you cope with stress. But now, in
addition to all these benefits, the simple pleasure of walking through the
spring air can win you and your campus a treasure trove of stunning prizes (without all the bother of having to wrestle with fire breathing dragons).
The National Transport
Authority has launched an initiative across Ireland called Marchathon 2014,
asking students to get together in groups and pledge to walk thirty minutes a
day for a week. It is that simple. There are daily spot prizes, a big draw and
many other awards. Prizes include Tablets, ereaders and Marchathon goodies.
