Who says splashing through puddles is just for children?

A pair of good, sturdy wellies on your feet makes all the difference on those wet or muddy spring walks and when the Greater Manchester rain hits hard, we say go jump in puddles!

Keeping your toes dry in wellies is just one way to prepare for wet weather walking. All you really need is the right clothing and you’ll be well protected from the elements. It sounds expensive but with some good shopping about, for less than £50 you can kit yourself out with clothing which will last you for years:

  • A waterproof jacket with hood and taped seams;
  • A pair of wellington boots, walking boots or synthetic mesh trainers;
  • An umbrella (optional).

Just avoid heavy denim or sweatpants as they will soak the water up. A pair of sweat-wicking leggings or joggers (or even shorts!) are best for keeping the rain at bay and are fast drying.

Getting outdoors is fantastic for physical and mental wellbeing, so don’t let the weather keep you indoors. We love this poem about wet weather walks:

Five reasons why walking is great

Just a reminder about why walking is great:

  1.  It’s good for your health – it has numerous benefits including reducing your risk of diabetes
  2.  It’s convenient – you can just get up and go when it suits you
  3.  It’s sociable – you can do it with a friend or colleague and chat as you go
  4.  It’s a great way to discover new areas  – it’s amazing what you find just from taking a different route
  5.  And it’s free – it won’t cost you a penny as you don’t pay for fuel, parking or transport fares

Remember: A good stroll is good for your Northern soul. Because that’s the Greater Manchester way.
