Walking is great in so many ways. A fast walk burns almost as many calories as running for the same distance, and it increases your heart and lung capacity. It’s proven that walking at a slow pace for even 20 minutes a day can give you major health benefits.
Walking is also the ultimate in sustainable transport. By taking to your feet you’ll be completely CO2 neutral, and getting from a to b won’t cost you a penny.
Working with existing services, community groups and healthcare providers Transport for Greater Manchester is currently developing and delivering a programme of leisure walks and a programme of structured health walks across Greater Manchester.
