Residents will be able to put their best foot forward at the annual Bristol Walk Fest taking place throughout the city during May.

The month-long festival, now in its seventh year, regularly attracts over 2,000 walkers from across the city and beyond.

Events are mostly free and for all ages and fitness levels. They range from historical tours and nature walks to exploring street art and walking sports.

This year’s Bristol Walk Fest is coordinated by Active Ageing Bristol, a collaboration between Bristol Sport Foundation, The Anchor Society and St Monica Trust.

They are working in partnership with Age UK Bristol – with funding from Active Ageing Bristol and Travelwest.

The festival will run from 1-31 May with the deadline for entering an event 1 March.
