We've done it! #walktothemoon

Staff, students, friends...get your coats because we’re all walking to the moon! 

There’s a mere 238,855 miles to walk between February 19 and July 20 so we need everyone to get involved.

We've walked to the moon!

On 20 July 1969, Apollo 11 landed on the moon and Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin became the first people to walk on the moon.

We’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with our own University of Stirling moon walk. There will be teams, vicious inter-department rivalries and all kinds of prizes to reward participation. 

Most important of all, it's all about getting active.

Post your Walk to the Moon photos and win a prize - find out how.

Every step counts - and we want yours

It doesn't matter if you're an ardent athlete or a springtime stroller. We want everyone involved and we want all your steps to help us reach the moon.
