Winter Walking Week is taking place between the 17th and 25th of February 2018. With over 100 free walking guides created to help people get active this is a great way to start a new fitness regime. It is a chance to get out and explore Manchester. Being active in the winter is difficult as it takes a lot of effort to drag yourself out in the bracing, cold Manchester weather but these fun routes give you a reason to get out there. Walking Week is taking place all over Manchester so everyone will be able to find a local walk to join.
The routes have been planned by Transport for Greater Manchester and the week coincides with half term so they are great for families looking for ways to entertain children without breaking the bank. From beginners to experiences hikers there is something for everyone with a range of difficulty in the walks. If you are looking for a challenge and wanting to step up your fitness routine opt for one of the more complicated and longer routes to test your fitness and get you active. However, if you are less mobile a variety of shorter walks have been designed. This is an event for everyone to get involved in. Walking is a low impact form of exercise which is great for keeping healthy, getting the recommended amount of exercise and getting you out exploring.
Working with lots of different walking groups across Manchester there is something for everyone. On the Transport for Greater Manchester website you can find a route depending on how far you want to go and the level of difficulty you desire. There is an option to discover wheelchair-friendly and buggy-friendly routes so this really is a week everyone can get involved with. With a mix of countryside and city walks you can stay local or visit places further afield.
