Walk England’s walking trails gain a reprieve
Although today’s Treasury Announcement states that Walk England’s funding for Active Challenge Routes has been cut, the organisation are keen to point out that the programme is still going ahead – although £2 million has been cut from their promotions budget.
Their website states that:
The project, which was called the Active Challenge Route Project, aims to identify, map and waymark 2,012 Walk4Life miles by 2012. The routes will be promoted on a new interactive website, aimed at the public, where people can find routes, upload new routes, and record their fitness…The project aims to make it easy for everyone, but especially people who are not currently active, to find a place near where they live where they can go for a short walk.
