Wirral Walking Festival

The Wirral Walking Festival highlights the variety of walks that take place in Wirral during Spring/Summer each year. The Wirral Walking Festival includes short strolls, long-distance treks, nordic walking, mixed ability running, and much more!

Walking is accessible to all and is free so why not get walking, it's an excellent way to meet new people, make friends and enjoy all the wonderful places the Wirral has to offer. We have many different groups across the borough which cater for everyone and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those volunteers out there who help make this happen. You change people's lives so thank you.
