In its second year running, the Eastbourne and Lewes Walkfest got off to a fantastic start, despite the inclement weather! Last Saturday saw some members of the Sportswise team don their walking boots and waterproofs and host the first ever Sportswise Wellbeing walk.
As one of the many walks on offer over the festival’s ten day period, we set off on a 7 mile walk over the local downland, enjoying the beautiful views whilst learning all about how to maximise the health benefits of walking. One walker commented “Whilst my main reason for attending was to get out and do a nice walk with like-minded people, I also learnt a lot on how I can get the most out of walking. All of the Sportswise team were informative and we all enjoyed this event”
With just a few days left of the festival, please see the Walkfest website for further information on the walks available in its last few days. We hope to see many more of you join us next year.
