Read our tips and challenges below to help you make the most of walking this month

  • Celebrate International Women’s Day by joining Manchester’s Walk for Women. Find out when and where it starts.
  • March is Walk All Over Cancer Month. Join thousands of supporters completing 10,000 steps everyday to raise money for life-saving cancer research. Get involved.
