Now in its sixth year, Bristol Walk Fest is still going strong, with more than 4,400 participants joining in this year, attending 163 walks and events during May.
From historical and street art tours, to nature walks, and walking sports – this year’s event included a wide variety of activities, all aimed at getting Bristol more active.
In total, more than 7,323 miles were walked by participants during the course of the festival.
This year also saw the launch of three brand new walking sports in the city, cricket, tennis and women’s football.
“We’re absolutely delighted that Bristol Walk Fest 2018 was such a resounding success.
“Walking is a great way to be active and getting out even for a short stroll can make such a difference to your health and wellbeing. We’d like to say a big thank you to all our walk and event organisers and participants and we can’t wait to welcome you all back again next year,” said Karen Lloyd, Manager for Active Ageing Bristol.
The festival, which is one of the UK’s largest celebration of urban walking, was organised and coordinated by Active Ageing Bristol – a collaboration between Bristol Sport Foundation, The Anchor Society and St Monica Trust, in partnership with LinkAge Network.
