Walking is one of Manningham's most popular recreation activities because:
- It's a great way to be active
- It's free
- It's a more social way of travelling
- You can do it anywhere at any time
- You don't need any equipment, other than a pair of shoes
- It's a sustainable way of getting around
- It doesn't matter your age, pace, whether you're on your own or in a group, heading somewhere or nowhere in particular
- It's the best value form of exercise for the prevention (and cure) of many major health problems, including obesity, diabetes, cardio-vascular disease and more.
For more information, visit the Victoria Walks "WhyWalk" webpage.
- Social interaction with the group increases the enjoyment
- Extra encouragement to participate in physical activity
- You are more likely to commit to regular walking, knowing you are part of a group
