GM Walking Festival 2024

Join our celebration of walking and wheeling this May

GM Walking Festival 2024 – we’re back

Welcome to the GM Walking Festival 2024. We’re delighted to have you as part of this celebration of walking and wheeling.

Last year, we were thrilled to have more than 300 walks on our festival website for the month of May and we saw thousands of people across Greater Manchester (re)discover the joy of walking and wheeling, connecting with people and their environment.

The festival is a fantastic opportunity for individuals to meet new people and discover the joy being active in the outdoors. Find out more about GM Walking Festival here.
