As part of “Colchester: A Year of Celebration”, Colchester Borough Council will once again be hosting a range of free health walks in 2012. The ‘Walking Your Way to the Games’ series of walks is being hosted to celebrate the run up to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The walks have been developed with the kind support of the Essex 2012 Legacy & Strategic Sport Team.

The five walks will take place once a month meeting at 10am on Sundays. Each of the walks is linked to an Olympic colour and vary in distance from 2 miles to 10 miles. Everybody who participates in one of the walks will receive a free souvenir pin badge in the colour the walk represents.

Cllr Tina Dopson, Portfolio Holder for Communities and Diversity said “This is a very exciting time in the lead up to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. There is a lot going on in Colchester for residents and visitors to enjoy from sporting events to cultural activities. This is the third year these walks have been hosted and I hope people of all ages go out, enjoy the fresh air and have fun by participating in them”.

The first walk, the Red Walk, takes place on Sunday 5th February and lasts 2 miles. It takes place on East Mersea, at Cudmore Grove Country Park.

The remaining walks will be: Green Walk (4 Miles), Yellow Walk (6 Miles), Blue Walk (8 Miles) and the Black Walk (10 Miles).

The ‘Walking Your Way to the Games’ series of walks have been recognised through the London 2012 Inspire Programme. The Inspire Mark recognises the most accessible, inspiring and participative projects.
