Walk Leicester Festival 2023

Did you know that May is National Walking Month?

Throughout May, National Walking Month encourages people to get active and walk more for your physical and mental wellbeing. The evenings will stay lighter for longer, making it the perfect time to get outside and explore your local area on foot.

This year, Active Together are delighted to be part of the Walk Leicester Festival 2023.

Leicester City has a lot to offer and Walk Leicester's Walking Festival have a variety of group walks and walking events taking place throughout the month.

You can find a full list of their events on their website. Simply click through to the Eventbrite pages for details of each event and to book your place.
