Our wish is to showcase and publicise all the great walking opportunities and groups there are in Greater Manchester and to encourage people to walk more and more often.

The festival has been running for 4 years with this year’s festival attracting over 5000 participants on a led walk in Greater Manchester.

It’s a great way to promote the physical, health, mental wellbeing and social and community development benefits of walking as well as raising the profile of your group/organisation.

Drawing upon the expertise of the many walking groups in Greater Manchester we are inviting organisations and providers of walks to submit details of any led walks which are free, open to the public and take place in the Greater Manchester boundary area in May 2019.

If you/your organisation would like to be involved in the GM Walking Festival 2019:

• Complete the spreadsheet template for your walks: Click here for spreadsheet.

• Return the completed spreadsheet to:

• The closing date for completed submissions is: Friday 11 Jan 2019

We’ve produced a guidance note which is here to help you fill in the spreadsheet.

If you have any questions or queries about the spreadsheet please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing or calling 0161 2231002 and ask to speak to the GM Walking team.

Our first goal is to collate all the walks that will be included in programme. Once we’ve received all the walks one of the team will be in touch to talk to you about how you can help promote the festival.

We would also really appreciate if you could pass this information onto any groups, contacts or other organisations you think would be interested in being involved in the 2019 GM Walking Festival.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
