Yorkshire people are encouraged to discover the wonders of walking during the Ramblers’ biggest-ever free short walks festival.

Get Walking Week (May 3 to 10) makes it easier for people to take their first steps into walking, which leads to a happier and healthier lifestyle. During the week the Ramblers will be offering free short walks in Yorkshire, giving people a taster of what walking is all about.

Ramblers groups will be leading walks throughout Yorkshire. To find a walk visit ramblers.org.uk/getwalking week.

Walking for Health, run by the Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support, will also be inviting people to walk with their local schemes. To find your nearest health walk scheme, visit walking forhealth.org.uk/walkfinder.
