National Walking Month is back this May and we’re asking you to #Try20 – that’s walk for 20 minutes everyday throughout the month.

We also want you to really explore your local streets. Why? Because we’re going to be asking you to rate your local walks - more on this closer to May, we don’t want to ruin all the surprises!

By taking part in #Try20 this year, you’ll be helping us get people back onto the streets and show how important it is that they’re good for walking.

To find out more about how you can help us create a picture of how walkable the UK is, sign up for our emails...
