Put your best foot forward - Bristol Walk Fest is back

The city’s hugely popular annual walking festival, Bristol Walk Fest - a celebration of walking and walks throughout the city - is set to take place throughout May 2018.

Bristol’s month-long walking festival, now in its sixth successful year, regularly attracts over 500 walkers from across the city and beyond. Walkers can take part in a variety of walks, including: history trails; urban exploring; walking sports; gentle park strolls and vigorous uphill hikes.

This year the team co-ordinating Bristol Walk Fest is Active Ageing Bristol - a collaboration between Bristol Sport Foundation, The Anchor Society and St Monica Trust, and in partnership with the LinkAge Network and Bristol Ramblers with investment from the TravelWest Fund.

Karen Lloyd, Active Ageing Bristol Manager, said: “Walking is a great way to be active and by getting out just once a day for a stroll can make such a difference to your health and wellbeing. I hope that we see more people than ever before getting out and taking part this year.

"Thanks, must go to the many local walking groups for supporting the 2018 Bristol Walking Festival."
