The abysmal summer weather did not put a dampener on the 3rd annual Health Walk Celebration Event, the Big Fit Walk at Glasgow Green.
All coming together
As well as a chance for different health walk groups to come together, the event was an opportunity to spread the message about the benefits of regular walking.
Going for Gold
Inspired by the Olympics, the theme was ‘Going for Gold’ and 98 walkers from 18 different health walk groups braved the elements for a short walk before moving indoors to the Winter Gardens for fruit kebabs and the tropical sounds of Pan African Arts Drumming. Games and a quiz were also provided by Glasgow Sports’ Spots and Stripes team.
Health walks are free walks up to 2.5miles long led by trained volunteers. For more details visit www.glasgowlife.org.uk/healthwalks
