    Join us for the Walking Tour of Tameside

    From 14th-17th June, runners from all over the country will take on the Tour of Tameside. This challenging event will involve running 4 races on consecutive days, for those doing the full Tour. Others have the option to take part in one or more of the races, depending on how much of a challenge they want to take on.

    If the running Tour of Tameside sounds a bit too strenuous, don’t worry, we have partnered with the event organiser, Sports Tours International, to put on the Walking Tour of Tameside as an alternative. You can choose to take part in 4 walks over 4 days, or just take part in one of them. All of our walks are completely free!
