We're running Get Walking Week from 4-11 May in a bid to introduce more people to the many pleasures and benefits of walking. The festival will also support the national Britain on Foot campaign which is encouraging people to get outdoors and get more active.
We'll be teaming up with Walking for Health schemes across England, holding the Big Welsh Walk in Wales from 4-6 May and launching the festival with several flagship events across England and Wales to make Get Walking Week Britain's biggest short walks festival - but we need your help too.
We’re asking Ramblers groups across the country to put on a variety of short, easy and accessible group led walks of 8km/5 miles or under from 4-11 May. To get involved all you need to do is add your walks to the Group Walks Finder using the festival code GWW13.
We'd like to start promoting Get Walking Week more widely so the sooner you can add walks the better. For more information on using the Group Walks Finder to list your walks take a look at the Group Walks Finder toolkit. If you don't yet have a Group Walks Finder login for your group email email@example.com to request a username and password.
Posters and other marketing materials will be available soon to help you encourage new walkers to join you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a pack.
