Get Walking Day 26-27 May 2012
Those feet were made for walkin' ............Start getting fit for the summer, spend some quality time with your family with 'Get Walking Day' 2012
The Ramblers are holding another Get Walking Day to get your legs, arms and everywhere else moving!
The theme of the event will be 'Get Walking for the Games Weekend'. There will be lots of Olympic and Paralympic themes over the weekend at the country gets ready for the 'greatest event on earth!'
But it's not about having a big strenuous work-out! Most of the planned walks will be under 5 miles - so easy to manage and led by an organiser in idyllic country locations.
Sometimes there can be a presumption that walking is simply boring. We walk all the time right, what's fun about that? But taking the time out of our busy schedules to enjoy walking in the outdoors has huge benefits - both for our physical and mental selves. There's no better way than losing weight and having great fun at the same time, is there?!
The Ramblers are hoping that the upcoming event should be even bigger this year. Another aim of the day is to get people involved in a 12 week walking plan called 'Get Walking Keep Walking'.
If you're interested in taking part, keep a look out for updates and walks near you by visiting the Get Walking Day website.
