May is one of the busiest walking months. With spring flowers bursting forth plus longer, warmer days everyone shrugs away the winter hibernation mode and has the urge to stride back out into the great outdoors. Here are some of the month’s key events...
Every May, Living Streets – a charity dedicated to making the UK’s streets safe, attractive and enjoyable places – encourages people to take to their feet and feel the benefits of walking. The national campaign hosts events up and down the country and including the Walk to Work and Walk to School weeks. #WalkThisMay
At iFootpath, we think walking shouldn’t be limited to being just functional, but should be embraced as the world’s best recreational activity too. So don your boots, discover somewhere new and maybe make some new friends with some of this month’s walking festivals.
