This year we are working more closely in partnership with  Telford and Wrekin council which we hope will lead to more people, who are not habitual walkers, taking part. 

You can show your support for the event by joining the Facebook Event  or by visiting our sister page on Healthy Telford,  or the Get Telford Walking Facebook page.

For  Monday to Friday 16th to 22nd May   we participated in  Walking to School week and   highlighted existing walking opportunities Here is the programme of walks.

 

 

On Saturday 21st we had short circular walks all over the Borough from community centres.

The Saturday walks will be  about 1 to 2  or 2 to 3 miles.  All of the venues will have toilets available at the start  and finish and refreshments  at the end.  Start times vary, a  confirmed table of venues and start times is  here.

On  Sunday 22nd we had 3 walks, using the T50, converging in the Town Park.

These 3 walks  picked up at  various places along the way,  for walks varying in length from 2.5 miles to 17.5 miles. .  See here for the full programme of start times and What 3 Words locations.  You can just turn up, but it would help us and give you more information if you book a place on the walk on our events page,
